Blazers coming to diabetes expo
The 2012 Diabetes and Health Expo, sponsored by the Canadian Diabetes Association, will take place in Kamloops on Saturday, Nov. 3, from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., at Kamloops Alliance Church, 233 Fortune Dr. (at the north end of Overlanders Bridge).
The building is accessible and free parking is available.
The expo is a free event, but donations will be accepted. In addition to the three keynote speakers, there will be an on-site trade show featuring more than 20 health-oriented organizations.
Lunches prepared by Nature’s Fare will be available for purchase — or, visitors may bring their own.
From noon to 1 p.m., current Kamloops Blazer Jordan DePape and former Blazer Ajay Baines, both type 1 diabetics, will be available to mix and mingle to discuss the health challenges all diabetics, including athletes, face.
Pre-registration is recommended by calling 1-888-628-9494.
