Diabetes, along with its various complications can have a huge impact especially on the health of the elderly and physically disabled, particularly in the state of Delaware. In response, Delaware Diabetes Coalition held the Delaware Diabetes Wellness Expo at the Dover Downs and Conference Center last November 15.

The Coalition’s aim at the Expo was to further inform the public about how those with Diabetes in Delaware can have an overall improvement in their quality of living. They’ve also emphasized that through the Expo, they will gain some additional knowledge and increase their awareness about the nature of diabetes including its causes, effects, and preventions.

The said publication includes resources for professional, medical as well as nutritional services for those who have or know someone who has Diabetes. The publication also contains resources on where you can get both educational as well as financial assistance.
