Salt Lake Tribune did a brief write up about Expo. Check it out:

"Gail Miller, wife of the late Larry H. Miller, who died from diabetes-related complications, will speak at 11 a.m. Other speakers include Sean Busby, a professional snowboarder who has [type 1 diabetes; Libery Afeaki, Miss Tonga Utah; and Burgandy Keel, a “Biggest Loser” contestant from Eagle Mountain."
