Pregnancy is like a stress test, revealing a woman's long term risk to developing Type II Diabetes. Post delivery is the ideal time to address lifestyle risk factors but many women with gestational diabetes report a lack of support at this crucial time.

The team will use their collective expertise in nutrition, exercise physiology, diabetes manangement and e-health technologies to develop an internet delivered lifestyle program for women with gestational diabetes involving one on one video coaching with the hope that this program will help to reduce the longterm risks of developing type II diabetes.
