Topics covered included:

- Coping toolbox
- Exercise physiology
- Managing surgery
- Paediatrics mastocytosis
- Mindfulness and chronic illness
- Chronic path

But by far, the greatest outcome from all our past conferences has been the strength we gain from meeting together face to face, connecting with others also walking their mast cell management journey and offering each other the encouragement we need to keep going and get the best from each day.
