Expo 2005 Wrap-up



Expo 2005 was a terrific success!  More than 200 people attended, coming from Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick and Ontario. 
This event was made possible by an amazing group of volunteers who gave hundreds (and hundreds) of hours, our supportive sponsors, the generosity of John Walsh and Ruth Roberts (Pumping Insulin), our exhibitors, and YOU! 
We hope you enjoyed attending this event as much as we enjoyed bringing it to you.  It definitely helped fulfill our mission to promote insulin pump therapy and help users optimize its benefits by providing support, education, information and advocacy for people with diabetes, their families, health professionals, and the general public. 
Thank you all for participating in your own unique way!
Barb Chafe
President, Insulin Pumpers Canada
