Inspire, Educate, Empower: Challenging Barriers to Exercise with Type 1 Diabetes
Mentor: Dr. Meaghan MacNutt
How can the experience of exercise be improved for people with type 1 diabetes? Research suggests that individuals with type 1 diabetes face additional challenges to their health when exercising, and that this presents a major barrier to exercise for this population. In this presentation I discuss factors that create barriers to exercise participation, how these can be overcome and future research that aims to challenge the barriers surrounding exercise and type 1 diabetes through optimizing performance in elite endurance sports.
