"Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day" was the theme for this past Tuesday's expo. Even with a small turnout health educators were ready to talk about ways to improve nutrition.
Navajo Nation Special Diabetes Project Nutritionist Yolanda Bileen said they hosted the expo in honor of National Nutrition Month during the month of March.
"The statistics that we have today, more and more of our people are getting diagnosed with diabetes and we need to put a stop to it one way or another by having health fairs and educating our people," Bileen said.
"They (the community) need to come and participate. Get involved and be motivated."
