The American Diabetes Association held its 7th annual Arkansas expo Saturday.

The free event at the NWA Convention Center offered health screenings, exhibition booths, and a family fun zone.

An "ask the experts" section was also available for people seeking medical advice.

Celebrity chef Curtis Aikens served up some healthy cooking tips in a demonstration.

"Giving folks the opportunity to come somewhere that's a free event where they can learn about Diabetes, where they can get their health checked I think is absolutely essential," Andrew Huntsinger, Chair of Arkansas Diabetes Association said.

Vendors were set up at the expo to give out samples of diabetic products, and lots of great information about diabetes treatment.
