More than 100 delegates and exhibitors took part in a Conference 5K fun run along the city's world-renowned waterfront.
The Diabetes UK Healthy Lifestyle Roadshow took place at Liverpool ONE shopping centre during the Conference, encouraging the public to get free Type 2 diabetes risk assessments and meet expert dieticians.
