  • Type 1 Fun- The Journey of a Type 1 Diabetic on a Thru- Hike of The Appalachian Trail

Speakers

Type 1 Fun- The Journey of a Type 1 Diabetic on a Thru- Hike of The Appalachian Trail

David Miller

Every year approximately 12,000 people attempt to thru-hike the 2,192 mile (3,527 km) long Appalachian Trail. Less than 2,000 of them will complete this journey.

Successfully completing a thru-hike for any person is a difficult and challenging endeavor with the odds stacked against them. Successfully completing a thru-hike as a type 1 diabetic adds a unique level of planning, logistical considerations, and physical and mental challenges to overcome.

This session for all levels of providers will give a unique perspective on chronic disease management and applications of current advanced diabetes technology in the setting of a sustained physically demanding activity like thru-hiking. Attendees will also get an understanding of how patients living with T1D can accomplish physically demanding goals that some may view as unattainable.

This presentation will explore the following:
– Advances in diabetes technology and its application.
– Collaboration with a forward-thinking and creative endocrinologist and his team.
– The physical and mental toll experienced during a thru-hike.
– Dietary considerations and management when burning nearly 8,000 calories daily for five months.
– Preparation, planning, and logistical challenges related to thru-hiking and diabetes management.

Hutton Room at Dynamic Earth

Holyrood Road, Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city is uniquely inspirational, not only for its fabled loveliness, but also for its associations – past and present – with innovation, creativity, discovery and progress.

It was here chloroform was first used as an anaesthetic and the founder of penicillin was born. Dolly the sheep was cloned at the University of Edinburgh’s Roslin Institute. The first ‘bionic’ hand – a powered prosthetic with articulating fingers – was developed by a spin-out company from the city’s Princess Margaret Rose Hospital, and the fastest-selling video game of all time – Grand Theft Auto V, by Rockstar North was developed!

Edinburgh has great transport connections too; home to Scotland’s busiest airport which serves 188 destinations worldwide, rail links which run all over the UK, easy access from Scotland’s motorway network and public transport in the city itself is simple with a plentiful supply of buses, trams and taxis.

There’s plenty to do after dark with lots of unique venues to experience a full flavour of Scotland’s culture. We have partnered with Convention Edinburgh and all of our Extreme Medicine delegates will receive the Edinburgh Rewards Card with their conference badge, opening a door to special offers from a selection of bars, restaurants, shops and tour operators.

Our conference venue, Dynamic Earth is a 5 star visitor experience, inviting guests to take a journey through time to witness the story of planet Earth. Dynamic Earth offers synergy within a global health context which match our own sustainable, community minded focus.
