Meet Gary Hall Jr!
It's time to register for our "It's a New Day in Diabetes" Conference and Expo, to be held from July 18-22, 2001 at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
Join with Olympic Gold Medalist Gary Hall, Jr., in opening the Exhibit Hall in the Coronado Ballroom on Wednesday evening from 5:30 - 9:00pm. Gary will meet the kids individually (yes, and the parents, too), pose for photos, and hand out autographed posters. It's a tremendous opportunity to come face to face with an Olympic champion who tames his diabetes daily to be one of the best swimmers in the world.
