Congratulations to Dr. Michael Riddell

We are extremely proud of the work of Dr. Michael Riddell and his collaborators. Dr. Riddell headed an international collaboration that published a Exercise and Type 1 Diabetes Consensus Statement on safe and effective exercise management in type 1 diabetes. This will surely become the seminal work in the field further reflecting Dr. Riddell’s contributions to the promotion of the health benefits of physical activity and evidence-based exercise prescription for persons living with diabetes.

Dr. Riddell is a leading member of the PAR-Q+ Collaboration and has ensured that our risk stratification and pre-participation strategy reduces the barriers to physical activity participation for those living with cardiometabolic disease.
