Bastyr's Dr. Ryan Bradley will discuss natural approaches to diabetes care and chef Jim Watkins will lead a healthy cooking demonstration at American Diabetes Association EXPO Seattle, April 21.

Bastyr University is pleased to announce it will have a large presence at the American Diabetes Association EXPO Seattle, Saturday April 21, 2012 at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center.

Ryan Bradley, ND, MPH, director of the Diabetes and Cardiovascular Wellness Clinic at Bastyr Center for Natural Health, the University’s teaching clinic, will give a presentation on "Natural Approaches to Diabetes Care," and Director of Food Services Jim Watkins will conduct a healthy cooking demonstration with food samples for the crowd. Licensed naturopathic doctor residents will also provide free glucose screenings at Bastyr’s booth and offer tips on managing and preventing diabetes using a sensible whole-body approach, with a focus on diet and nutrition as opposed to pharmaceutical solutions.

“Bastyr University’s participation in this important event shows our commitment to healthy living and holistic health,” said Bastyr University President Daniel K. Church, PhD. “Finding natural, attainable ways to fight diabetes is our way of contributing to the cause, and we hope those who attend the EXPO will learn health tips from our experts that they can take home with them.”

ADA’s EXPO Seattle will take place from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. in North Halls 4E/F of the convention and trade center. The event comes on the heels of a recently published report on diabetes, produced jointly by Dr. Bradley, the Bastyr University Research Institute and Group Health Research Institute.
