The JDRF PEAK (Performance in Exercise and Knowledge) Program

The JDRF Performance in Exercise and Knowledge (PEAK) Program is a unique outreach initiative that is making a life-changing difference for thousands of people with type 1 diabetes (T1D) who, prior to PEAK, had not received clear guidance on how they could safely pursue exercise. PEAK provides education on the environmental, dietary, and physiologic elements that affect physical activity in those with T1D.
