Food Access Impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic

This event is filling up – REGISTER SOON!
Wednesday, October 21, 12:00 – 13:00 ET

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed daily life for citizens in most countries around the world. The speed at which citizens have had to react and adapt to government directives for physical distancing is unprecedented, producing a number of hardships in acquiring the essentials of life. Of particular importance to understand is the impact that the pandemic has had on access to food, which will have been affected for a variety of reasons; e.g. economic challenges resulting from job loss, agricultural impacts, self-isolation, or apprehension to shop in-store due to concerns about exposure to the SARS-CoV2 virus. This webinar will present findings from two projects that have evaluated consumer risk perceptions and food access impacts of the pandemic: 1) a Quebec provincial household survey investigation and 2) a Pan-Canadian survey study on consumer perceptions and experiences.

Speakers: Daiva Nielsen, PhD and Wallapak Polasub, PhD

Carbohydrates Under Target: Ketogenic diet and Type 1 Diabetes

Wednesday, November 4, 12:00 – 13:00 ET

Data from type 1 diabetes registries show that over 4 out of 5 patients have A1c levels above the 7% target. Therefore, a large proportion people with type 1 diabetes are struggling to achieve good diabetes control and are avidly looking for strategies, such as the ketogenic diet, to improve it. There is indeed a growing interest in limiting carbohydrate in the diabetes community, however healthcare professionals are sometimes reluctant to provide guidance on how low we can limit the carbohydrate intake due to the lack of information related to safety issues. During this presentation, we will explore the short terms impact of the ketogenic diet on diabetes management and discuss the potential safety issues in the context of type 1 diabetes. We will consider the patients’ perspectives for adopting this diet and review the pros and cons to allow informed decision from the patient.

Speaker: Anne-Sophie Brazeau, PhD, RD
