Notes from BIO 2009: Basketball Star Dominique Wilkins Roams Show Floor

Michele Vaccarello Wagner and Dominique Wilkins at BIO 2009I managed to grab a picture with NBA Hall-of-Famer, Dominique Wilkins, who was being led around the show floor by a group of BIO officials.

Wilkins, who suffers from diabetes, is an ambassador for Novo Nordisk's 'Changing Diabetes' campaign and appeared at their booth on Wednesday afternoon of the show. 

Wilkins was recently featured on"Sharing Miracles," a 30-minute public affairs television program that details the inspirational stories of real patients.

On a more personal note, I was pleasantly surprised by how friendly Wilkins was to attendees. He saw me lurking around the booth trying to get a chance to say hello and invited me right over.

Thanks for not being a stuck-up celeb Dominique!
