Planning a diabetes event for November is great, but what happens to your customers when the calendar flips to December 1? Their diabetes doesn’t go away just because Diabetes Month ends. When marketing efforts start to include serious health and wellness content, what we say and how we approach it matters even more.

Join registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator Kim Kirchherr, MS, RDN, LDN, CDE, FAND to learn how to become and remain relevant to your shoppers who are managing diabetes while still appealing to the joy of sharing meals and snacks with family and friends.

The Independent Grocers Alliance (IGA) was founded in 1926, bringing together independent grocers across the United States to ensure that the trusted, family-owned local grocery store remained strong in the face of growing chain competition.

Today, that entrepreneurial family business spirit is alive and well, and communities across the U.S. are being served by second, third and even fourth generation independent IGA retailers. And IGA is expanding across the globe, as well; IGA's Hometown Proud stores can now be found all around the world.
