IPTN offers monthly webinars on a wide range of topics related to therapeutic nutrition. The webinars feature local, national, and international subject matter experts.

Now in its fifth year,  the interactive webinar series is an excellent way to share knowledge and emerging best practices with members of the growing IPTN Therapeutic Nutrition Community of Practice.

The webinars are coordinated and hosted by IPTN staff. The webinar speakers volunteer their time to deliver a 60-minute talk followed by a question-and-answer period. The webinar series is shaped by a Scientific Advisory Committee and accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons through the UCB Continuing Professional Education (Medicine) department.

There is no cost to attend, and past webinars are archived and accessible for members of IPTN's Therapeutic Nutrition Community of Practice.

The RESET for Remission Trial: Insights from three of the Canadian investigators

The RESET for Remission clinical trial is a joint Canada-UK randomized study that is recruiting 100 younger adults (18 to 45) with type 2 diabetes. The intervention arm is investigating whether a low-calorie meal replacement program combined with structured exercise puts participants’ type 2 diabetes into remission and improves their cardiac health markers. You can read more about the study here.


The 90-minute March 7 webinar will feature the following three speakers: 

  • Dr. Kaberi Dasgupta, a physician, researcher, and professor of medicine at McGill University. Her research focuses on the prevention and treatment of type 2 diabetes. She is the lead investigator of the RESET for Remission trial.  

  • Norman Boule, PhD , a professor and associate dean in the Faculty of Kinesiology, Sport and Recreation at the University of Alberta. His research program focuses on the role of exercise in preventing and managing diabetes. 

  • Dr. Roseanne Yeung, an associate professor of Endocrinology and Metabolism at the University of Alberta. Dr. Yeung has a special interest in improving diabetes care delivery with peer support, community health workers, and improved educational resources, including assessing the impacts and treatments of young-onset type 2 diabetes.
