The Purchase Area Diabetes Connection is hosting the 20th Annual Purchase Area Health Expo (formerly known as Diabetes Expo).  We have so much more health topics this year, we wanted the name to reflect that.  It will be a come and go event on October 16th 9:00-12:00 noon, Saturday.  There will be outdoor vendors as well as indoor vendors.  Masks will be required for indoor entrance due to McCracken County Cooperative Extension regulations.  Health screenings will be flu/COVID-19 vaccines, blood pressure, blood sugar, A1C, foot screenings and exercises to help with neuropathy.  We also have many organizations ready to help you with resources.

You will get a chance to talk with them and receive their resources, enter a drawing for $20 gift card and goody bag of resources.  The exhibit hall will be one way so you can be sure to talk with each exhibitor present.


McCracken County Cooperative Extension is located at 2025 New Holt Road, Paducah.

No pre-registration required.
