The programme will help healthcare professionals to provide education and support around exercise and nutrition to their patients living with type 1 diabetes.This one-day event will bring together 300 healthcare professionals to hear expert speakers including Dr Rob Andrews, Dr Ian Gallen and Dr Parth Narendren deliver the programme, and includes sessions on sports nutrition and type 1 diabetes, diabetes technology and exercise. An interactive course syllabus will be available for delegates to view throughout the day on the conference app, compatible with both android and iPhones, and course materials will be available for download after the conference.
