“We are pleased to once again be hosting one of the CDA’s national expos in Winnipeg this year,” says Andrea Kwasnicki, regional director, Manitoba/Nunavut for the CDA. “The CDA Expo is a great way to empower people to learn new ways to live a healthy life with diabetes or how to prevent type 2 diabetes when possible. This year’s focus on healthy eating means we can showcase how eating well can make a difference to your health.”

In addition to Dr. Zentner, the CDA Expo Winnipeg will feature a presentation from Dr. Kevin Saunders, medical director of the Wellness Institute at Seven Oaks General Hospital and an “Ask the Expert” panel of chefs and healthy eating experts.
