Patty Burton and Shirley Roberson, senior health educators for the Lake Cumberland District Health Department, provided informational materials on diabetes at their booth at Lake Cumberland Health Expo.

Burton works in Pulaski County, and Roberson covers Russell County. They helped staff the booth, one of 50 or so exhibits at the Expo, hosted by LCDHD on Nov. 16, at The Center for Rural Development.

More than 600 people registered for the event, which included breakout sessions with guest speakers, exercise and cooking demonstrations and free health screenings.
