LIVE FRUIT JUICE DEMO
Abdusalam Abajebel, Owner Operator of Oasis Jimma Juice Bar
Abdusalam’s story starts in Ethiopia, where he, grew up working in his father’s clinic, treating patients homeopathically with roots and herbs from their family farm. After political turmoil broke out in his hometown of Jimma, Abdulsalam fled to Kenya to live in a refugee camp for five years. Shortly after arriving in America, Abdulsalam rediscovered the passion he’d found while working at his father’s clinic. This inspired Abdulsalam to open Oasis Jimma Juice Bar in Harlem. Today, people from near and far travel the byways of New York City to get the best in fresh food and beverages. And the rest of the story is…healthy. For more information visit oasisjimmajuice.com

The concept for EXPOSED arose organically, when interest in a 2015 talk on food and wellness hosted by SMPLCT Lab became the interest of startups, to corporations, students to influencers. Simultaneously, founder of SMPLCT Lab, Cynthia Hellen, began experiencing a health crisis of her own, and upon sharing her story with others, realized the crisis of disconnection from the mental and physical health and wellness was on everyone’s mind. The more she shared her story, the more experts and entrepreneurs dedicated to fixing this crisis she met, and the more people wanted to be a part of an epic event that brought their knowledge to the public. Instead of being exposed to the daily assault of chemicals and toxins in many foods and products, attendees can expose themselves to expert knowledge on good food, improving their health, wellness, and their lives.

Tickets to this event are transferrable but are non-refundable.
