DENVER (CBS4) – The American Diabetes Association is teaming up with CBS4’s Fit 4 Colorado Campaign to help Coloradans get healthy.
The Diabetes Expo at the Colorado Convention Center is set to have plenty of activities for the whole family. Those activities include A family fun zone, free health screenings and cooking demonstrations.
Currently 316,000 people in Colorado are living with diabetes. In the United States nearly 26 million people have diabetes and 57 million have pre-diabetes. The Diabetes Expo is working to end that alarming trend. If things don’t turn around it’s predicted that one in three children will face a future with diabetes.
The expo is from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. on March 5. The event is free for all.
