I recently attended a training camp about going to the #nextLevel. But it wasn’t about business goals or physical skills. CONTOUR® NEXT takes it to the #nextlevel in diabetes management. Knowing both adults and children that live with the disease the CONTOUR® NEXT Training Camp was a moment of inspiration.
The CONTOUR® NEXT Powered by Accuracy Campaign includes a new web platform that will act as a resource and support system for people managing diabetes. The web platform, poweredbyaccuracy.ca will provide inspirational stories, educational video content to support people living with diabetes. The goal is to help individuals maintain a healthy, active lifestyle through the Accuracy Coach program. Max Domi, a homegrown Canadian hockey player who currently plays for the Arizona Coyotes in the NHL will act as “head” coach.
At the CONTOUR® NEXT Training Camp, Max was more than welcoming to everyone in attendance. He led the kids through warm-up stretches and participated in ball hockey drills. Max offered up his own diabetes story, talking about his diagnoses and struggles. He encouraged the kids to ask him questions, which Canadians can do on the poweredbyaccuracy.ca site.
CONTOUR NEXT – #nextlevel in Diabetes management
Acting as “head” coach of the program, Max shares his own story, working closely with healthcare professionals and other people with diabetes to inspire and educate Canadians.
Max, who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 12, hopes that by opening up about his personal experiences he will inspire a call-to- action for Canadians to visit poweredbyaccuracy.ca to learn more about the disease.
Ultimately, he wants to encourage people living with diabetes to understand how they can still lead remarkable lives. “Managing diabetes can be hard, but with the right coaching and support there are no limits. It’s so important that people with diabetes have the confidence to develop a healthy mindset and take control,” says Domi. “I want to reach as many people as I can and share my own experience and tell my own story. Diabetes hasn’t stopped me and the goals I’ve set for myself, and it doesn’t have to stop anyone else.”
It was impressive to see the high level athletes and professionals who made their dreams a reality despite living with diabetes. There was a female MMA fighter, a doctor and Max himself. They all demonstrated that accurately managed diabetes can take you to the #nextLevel.
I would recommend anyone living with or without diabetes to visit poweredbyaccuracy.ca. I found the site really interesting in terms of learning more about exercise, health and lifestyle.
