Title: Strategies for Improving Physical Activity Participation Among Individuals with Diabetes
Backgound: Despite the health benefitsof physical activity, many people with diabetes are not physically active. In 2010, the American Association of Diabetes Educators hosted a Being Active Symposium during which 17 invited thought leaders examined current knowledge about physical activity in diabetes and translated evidence into diabetes care and self-management education. This report summarizes the moderated discussion and key points of interest to health care professionals involved with diabetes care and education, including physicians and non-physician providers, diabetes educators, and community workers.
The Symposium aimed to develop practical advice for health care professionals regarding physical activity for people with diabetes
