Event description

Description

The type 1 diabetes (T1D) Performance in Exercise and Knowledge (PEAK) program is a unique outreach initiative to increase education on the management of physical activity for individuals living with T1D. Its goal is to break new ground in supporting safe, informed exercise within the T1D community.

Audience: Physicians, Nurses, Pharmacists, Diabetes Educators, Endocrinologists and other health care professionals involved in the management of patients with T1D who exercise or wish to exercise.

This program will be accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) for physicians, CDEs, nurses, pharmacists, and dieticians. Details to follow shortly.

Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the environmental, dietary, physiological, and psychosocial elements that impact physical activity in people with T1D
  • Manage different types of physical activity in people with T1D
  • Develop treatment plans for patients with T1D who exercise or wish to exercise
  • Implement strategies to ensure safe exercise in people with T1D through:
    1. Understanding appropriate nutritional requirements for each patient
    2. Educating patients on optimal insulin management to minimize risk of hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia


PEAK is supported by a grant from Novo Nordisk A/S.


The registration deadline is Wednesday, April 19. For questions or more information please contact Carrie Zager, Senior Outreach Manager, at 202.469.6978 or czager@jdrf.org.
