Event Details



Join us for the 2018 EXPOSED, a food, wellness and social impact event in New York City featuring notable speakers, workshops, and vendors from farmers to practicioners and everyone in between who all aim to share ideas on positive living. Come and share your vision on how to create a good food, health, wellness movement that supports sustainable lifestyle.

The concept for EXPOSED arose organically, when interest in a 2015 talk on food and social 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.

Adam Sabloff, Founder & CEO, VirtualHealth

A graduate of Emory University, Adam recognized that seniors and the chronically ill residing in the numerous real estate developments he oversaw could benefit from a consolidated platform that tracked their health information remotely outside the hospital. After losing a loved one to a late-stage diagnosis, Adam launched VirtualHealth to pursue bringing proactive care for all patients. The VirtualHealth platform identifies which patients will become high risk, and therefore high cost, through extensive data analysis and enrolls them in programs to get them healthier. Under Adam’s leadership, VirtualHealth has completed two rounds of funding led by growth equity firm Edison Partners, grew to manage 5.6 million patients, and secured some of the biggest health plan customers in the country such as WellCare and Community Care of North Carolina.
