Free exercise sessions for diabetes research

Free exercise program for diabetics

Researchers at the University of Newcastle (Central Coast) are looking for men and women with type 2 diabetes to participate in eight weeks of free group telehealth exercise sessions.

They will be supervised by an accredited exercise physiologist.

Participants will undergo testing of their health and fitness before and after the intervention, and also will be given exercise equipment to keep.

Clinical Exercise Physiology lecturer at the university, Dr Emily Cox, said participants would need to attend the university’s Ourimbah campus on two occasions.

“Specifically, we are looking for people with type 2 diabetes over the age of 18 years with a HbA1c over seven percent,” Dr Cox said.

“They would need to have access to an electronic device with a camera, such as a computer, tablet or laptop.”
