Type 1 Diabetes: Managing Food and Insulin for Activity: What you need to know


An event specifically for people living with type 1 diabetes who want to learn how to improve diabetes management around physical activity and exercise

Join us on a weekend event for people living with type 1 diabetes who want to learn how to improve diabetes management around physical activity and exercise.

Whether you're very active already or want to learn more about getting active with type 1, this event is for you. 

Over the weekend you'll get to try out a range of activities and learn more about managing activity in a safe and supported environment.  You’ll be able to discuss your concerns and get advice from healthcare professionals, as well as share your experiences and tips with others living with type 1 and here from DiAthlete, Gavin Griffiths. You'll leave the event feeling more confident, better informed and armed with practical strategies that are easy to fit into your day-to-day life. 

The cost of the event is £100 which covers the full programme of events (including the activities) and catering.
