Hundreds of families spent part of their weekend at the D.C. Convention Center to learn about making healthy lifestyle choices.
A variety of exhibits aided the lessons for healthy living, including dancing, rock climbing, and even cooking. AT&T is using the gathering to educate people about the dangers of text messaging while driving.
"People are texting while driving more often these days," says Andrea Brands, a spokesperson with the company. "It's almost at an epidemic level, so we really want them to understand that it's important to use these products safely, and this exhibit helps them do that."
Researchers say thousands of deaths have resulted from people texting behind the wheel. The health expo runs through this evening.
