Study Summary

This study aims to test the effectiveness of an evidence-based eating-disorder prevention program specifically targeted for individuals with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) compared to an educational control group. The Diabetes Body Project (DBP), is an adaptation of the Body Project which is the only eating disorder prevention program to have repeatedly produced effects when evaluated by independent researchers, produced stronger effects than credible alternative interventions, and affected objective outcomes. DBP has been adapted slightly for individuals with T1D who are at ultra-high risk for eating disorders. The study aims to test the effectiveness of the DBP of reducing body image concerns and reducing eating pathology and improving glycemic control.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
