EXTOD again joined with the Association of British Clinical Diabetologists (ABCD) and JDRF’s Performance in Exercise and Knowledge (PEAK) programme to deliver another interactive day of education focusing on type 1 diabetes and exercise.
This impactful training day was held on the 18th October 2019 at the Raddison blue hotel in Glasgow.
