Free Webinar: “Working with Clients Who Have Diabetes or Prediabetes: What You Really Need to Know”
MedeXN is very excited to host this webinar with renowned author and educator Dr. Sheri Colberg. This webinar is a great introduction for Fitness and Health Professionals working with clients who are physically active with diabetes or prediabetes (which is one in three Canadians), including types of training that are appropriate, effects on blood glucose, injury prevention, monitoring, motivation, safety precautions with health complications, and more.
It is recommended that all certified personal trainers, group instructors, and interested health professionals should minimally have this basic information to train and work with these clients.”
