The American Diabetes Association's Baton Rouge Walk is BACK and BETTER than ever! This year the American Diabetes Association is excited to
announce a fantastic partnership with Healthy BR! Healthy BR and the
Association have paired together to form the Walk/ Healthy BR Diabetes
Expo --- enabling us to bring our mission to life.
Join the American Diabetes Association and Healthy BR on Saturday, November 19th at Pennington Biomedical Research Center to raise funds and awareness for those living with diabetes!
The Healthy BR Diabetes Expo
is an interactive educational event will feature all of the major hospitals
and information on their healthy living programs, food samples from several
local restaurants’ healthy menu items, a diabetes dog, diabetes shoe fitting
experts, nutrition information from registered dieticians, exercise information
from local fitness programs, food and fitness demonstrations, and SO much more!
Red Striders, friends, family, kids, peers, co-workers… This is an event that
you do NOT want to miss. This informative event will be held in
coordination with the American Diabetes Association’s annual walk, which is a
walk to help support those living with diabetes. With this event, we hope to
educate participants about Type I and Type II Diabetes Mellitus to include
preventative medicine as well as disease state management and also provide a
resource to assist with dining out in Baton Rouge.
