On behalf of JDRF, we are pleased to invite you to participate in the JDRF T1D Performance in Exercise and Knowledge (PEAK) Program.  The PEAK program is an educational program providing insights into the management of exercise for individuals with type 1 diabetes (T1D).

Developed by a steering committee lead by Dr. Rémi Rabasa-Lhoret, the JDRF Performance in Exercise and Knowledge (PEAK) program is an innovative, unique outreach initiative to help increase education on effective management of physical activity for individuals with type 1 diabetes (T1D). Its goal is to break new ground in supporting safe, informed exercise within the T1D community. The JDRF PEAK program is available to physicians, nurses, pharmacists, diabetes educators and other healthcare professionals involved in the management of patients with T1D who exercise or wish to exercise.

The meeting will take place on Monday, February 5, 2018 from 7:30 AM to 4:00 PM at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre South Building.
