This month Abbott presented its first online

FreeStyle Wellness Festival and it's still possible to

Abbott's Wellness Festival

was three-day event had

two sessions per day, but

several presentations

in each session. Some were

videos, others were live-streaming

chats and discussions. It started

with a Positivity Panel hosted

by psychologist (and T1D) Dr Jen

Bateman. She chatted to Vanessa

Haydock and Eoghan Quinn about

their daily motivations and their

personal advice for maintaining a

positive outlook. That was followed

by a talk, Developing a Positive

Attitude with a live Q&A with solo

sailor Jack Trigger. He talked about

the importance of a positive mindset

and how he handles the challenges of

sailing around the world with Type

1 diabetes. The day ended with a

Behaviour Change Consultation with

Vanessa Haydock, another Type 1-er,

who uses the science of behaviour

change to demonstrate how to

modify and improve specific healthrelated

behaviours.

On the second day there was a

talk, A Day in the Life Of, from the

professional rugby player Chris

Pennell where you got a glimpse of

one of his normal days, showing what

he eats and how he trains/plays. This

was followed by a panel discussion

on diet and exercise hosted by Sky

TV presenter (and T1D) Stephen

Dixon. There was a lunchtime Full

Body Workout, also by Vanessa

Haydock, an online workout with

a mix of strength and conditioning

exercises. This was followed later in

the day by a talk around the launch of

FreeStyle Libre 2 in the UK entitled,

Caring for Your Mind, Body & Soul,

where users talked about their views

and early experiences of the system.

This was followed by Dixon hosting a

discussion with Diabetes Consultant

The final day started with a talk

about Building your Support Network

Helen Wills and a representative

from Diabetes UK, about how to talk

to family/friends about diabetes

and building your support network.

Then it was time to watch a film,

Diary of a Hypo Dog, explaining how

to go about training a dog to sense

changes in glucose levels. Influencer

she is training her dog, Logan, to sniff

out her hypos. In the final session,
