An event that will fill up soon, the annual OneTouch Sports and Exercise Weekend (October 20th and 21st) still have a few places available. The aim of the OneTouch Sports and Exercise Weekend is to provide people with Type 1 diabetes with advice and information from HCPs specialising in this area of diabetes health. It will bring together 50 people living with T1D to share their interest in sport and activity with each other, with sports instructors and patient advocates – the OneTouch Heroes.
Taking place at Loiughborough University, there will be presentations about improving performance and glucose control as well as practical exercise workshops and open discussions with advice* from experts in the field.There will be talks on sports and nutrition and on using insulin pump therapy and continuous glucose monitoring while undertaking sport and exercise.
The program was developed by OneTouch in cooperation with Dr Ian Gallen and Dr Alistair Lumb, both of whom have specialised in managing diabetes for sportspeople.
All practical sessions are designed around delegates working to the fitness level that’s best for them as individuals. The workshop environment will be instructor-led and is not designed to be competitive. Healthcare professionals will be available to assist and guide.
*HCPs won’t be able to provide one-to-one advice but there will be a Q&A sessions to address questions attendees may have.
Date: 20 and 21 October 2018
