Upcoming WebinarWhat should we be telling relatives of people with type 1 diabetes
Thursday 7th July 2022, 5:00pm - 6:00pm

In the sixth of our 2022 ABCD webinar series, please join Dr Parth Narendran to discuss 'What should we be telling relatives of people with type 1 diabetes?

The type 1 diabetes landscape is rapidly changing on many fronts. One of them is in the delay and prevention arena. The last few years have seen unprecedented changes in this space and we are approaching a time when therapies to delay type 1 diabetes may become available.

This webinar will bring the audience up to speed with progress in this area and concentrate on screening to identify people at risk of type 1 diabetes to whom these therapies can be offered. Since there is a significant genetic contribution to the development of type 1 diabetes, it is likely that family members will be some of the first to step forward to ask about and participate in screening programmes. This webinar will outline some of the information we should be passing on to them.

Q& A will follow this presentation

Speakers

Dr Parth Narendran
Parth Narendran is based at the University of Birmingham, and at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham. He qualified from Kings College London and undertook his post-graduate clinical training in Manchester, Bristol and London. He conducted his PhD studies on the immune mechanisms underlying the development of type 1 diabetes whilst at Bristol. He was subsequently awarded a JDRF post-doctoral fellowship in Melbourne, Australia. 
Parth’s clinical interests focus on type 1 diabetes and he supports the type 1 services at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham. These include a structured education programme called Dose Adjustment for Normal Eating (DAFNE), the adolescent transition, insulin pump, glucose sensing and islet/pancreas transplant services. Supporting patients to exercise is a core interest of the service. 
Parth’s research interests also focus on type 1 diabetes. He has a long-standing interest in preserving the function of insulin producing pancreatic beta cells in type 1 diabetes. More recently he has been involved programmes for detecting people at risk of getting type 1 diabetes so that they can be offered clinical trials for prevention of this condition.
