New York, N.Y., March 11, 2017 – McDonald’s conducted a series of workshops with Paul Cottrell, McDonald’s New York Tri-State Owner/Operator, and Sandra Arévalo, registered dietitian, to show New York City locals how to incorporate balanced eating into everyday life as part of the American Diabetes Association’s Expo health fair.

“The McDonald’s New York Tri-State Owner/Operators Association is thrilled to once again be a part of this year’s American Diabetes Association’s Expo,” said Paul Cottrell, a McDonald’s New York Tri-State Owner/Operator. “As restaurant owners, we’re always focused on meeting the needs of our customers, and that includes providing balanced food options and supporting organizations that align with our commitment to nutrition awareness.”

The ADA Expo at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center is one of the largest health fairs in the New York Metro area. This year, the Expo had more than 10,000 people participate in an event that featured music, dancing, nutritional workshops, cooking demonstrations and health screenings.
