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: Patients with T1D who exercise or wish to exercise and their caregivers

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

  • Understand the environmental, dietary, physiological, and psychosocial elements that impact physical activity in people with T1D
  • Feel confident to make changes to your current T1D and exercise treatment plan
  • Improve BG readings while exercising in the future

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