Webinars – T1D and Exercise

As part of Dr. Jon McGavock’s type 1 diabetes (T1D) and exercise research at the Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba (CHRIM), his team has developed a series of webinars on this topic.

These webinars have been designed based on the lab’s recent priority-setting project, which was done to determine what the most important questions were to people living with T1D relating to exercise and their health. The current project continues this work by following patient-oriented research protocols to co-design interventions and determine the ideal components of exercise programs and measurable variables in the research context.

The study has many aims, including the establishment of a network of scientists and patient partners dedicated to research in this area and co-developing a set of clinical trials that can be used to help shape exercise guidelines. In order to move forward these goals, the team is planning a Hackathon, where scientists and patient partners come together to design new research studies.

This webinar series has been developed as a precursor to the Hackathon and covers patient-identified areas of learning that will be relevant to that event.


The D1 Now Study: Origins, Current Work, and Hackathon Experience

ABOUT THE WEBINAR

Professor Sean Dinneen is an endocrinologist in the west of Ireland who starts the talk with some background on their young adult population living with type 1 diabetes, and how their group set out to re-imagine care in their clinic in an effort to improve outcomes. Dr. Eimear Morrissey, a researcher in the Health Behaviour Change Research Group, takes over describing the D1 Now Intervention program that was then developed, and their Young Adult Panel who works with the research team.

GUESTS:

Dr. Eimear Morrissey BA, MSc., PhD
D1 Now Programme Manager
Health Behaviour Change Research Group School of Medicine | School of Psychology National University of Ireland, Galway

Prof. Sean Dinneen, MB BCh BAO Senior Lecturer in Medicine

Strategies for Exercise with Minimal Carbohydrate Intake for Weight Loss and Exercise with Automated Insulin Pumps

ABOUT THE WEBINAR

Dr. Zaharieva is a former trainee in Dr. Riddell’s research lab, and they are good friends. The two reunite to give a very engaging presentation on some of their recent collective work, focusing on strategies for exercise with minimal carbohydrate intake for weight loss, and exercise with automated insulin pumps.

GUESTS:

Dr. Michael C. Riddell, PhD Professor at the School of Kinesiology and Health Science at York University

Dr. Dessi Zaharieva, PhD Postdoctoral Scholar Stanford University


The impact of fasting versus fed exercise on blood glucose responses in people with type 1 diabetes

ABOUT THE WEBINAR

Dr. Jane Yardley is a former trainee in the McGavock lab, and has almost 15 years of experience in the area of Type 1 Diabetes and exercise research.  Her talk focuses on blood glucose responses to exercise in the fed versus fasted state in people living with type 1 diabetes.

GUEST:

Dr. Jane Yardley, University of Alberta


The impact of fasting versus fed exercise on blood glucose responses in people with type 1 diabetes

ABOUT THE WEBINAR

Professor Othmar Moser has dual roles at exercise and diabetes centres in Austria and Germany.  Both sites do a lot of research on new insulins and new technologies surrounding exercise and diabetes.  Recently, there has been a shift away from the avoidance of hypoglycemia with exercise, and towards focusing on time in range with exercise and type 1 diabetes, which is the focus of this interesting webinar.

GUEST:

Dr. Othmar Moser, University of Bayreuth


The epidemiology of exercise and health outcomes in persons with type 1 diabetes – Gaps to fill with patient-oriented research.

ABOUT THE WEBINAR

Dr. Jonathan McGavock is a research scientist at the Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba and an avid runner. In this talk, Jon takes the audience through a lesson in different epidemiological study designs. He reviews how different types of studies are used to answer important questions about our health, and what opportunities there are to strengthen the evidence and shape guidelines surrounding physical activity and type 1 diabetes.

SPEAKER:

Dr. Jonathan McGavock, University of Manitoba


Using Hackathons to Engage Patient Partners and Scientists in Reshaping Clinical Care

ABOUT THE WEBINAR

Dr. Katarina Braune is a person living with type 1 diabetes who is doing DIY looping. She is also a pediatric emergency physician, a digital health researcher, and the co-chair of the Berlin chapter of the organization called Hacking Health.  In her talk, she provides an overview of her experiences with Hackathons.  She talks about how Hackathons bring patients, scientists, and other multidisciplinary team members together, and how they can help reshape clinical care.
