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: 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

Children ages 5-12 are invited to enjoy a fun-filled day in our Kids Zone, which features arts and crafts, special guest presentations, and diabetes education activities.
