Expo founder and owner, Patrycja Siewert-Towns. “More and more Atlanta consumers are interested in learning about and leading a healthy lifestyle. And to celebrate our tenth year, we’ve planned some exciting additions and changes from bringing new speakers and companies to expanding our gluten free vendors.
