Thank you so much for coming along and showing your support for the first ever conference for people with diabetes! We had a great turnout on the day and your feedback seems to have been incredibly positive!
We are thrilled that the first conference has been so well received and we are now committed to make next year’s event even better!
Everyone seemed to enjoy the Open Space format and once a list of ‘topics’ had been drawn up, everyone was happy to join in wherever they chose. Given that we ran out of time towards the end of the day and missed some of the topics raised, it is evident that we all have lots to discuss.
Thanks to all those of you who brought along bits and pieces to the swapshop table – Many went away with some great freebies – bits of kit which hopefully will now get used!
Thanks too for those of you who brought along cakes and home-cooked refreshments for the Hypo (and not-so Hypo!) table. The low carb cheesecake was delicious!
A huge thank you to TeamBG who not only sponsored this year’s event, but also kindly donated not one but TWO Dexcom G4 Platinum continuous glucose monitors.
Prizes were won for within range BG levels, but a Dexcom G4 was also given away for ‘not so in range’ BGs – after all, the GBdoc likes to support and encourage regular testing without always focussing on the ‘number’.
