The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust’s (Helmsley) Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) Program, a DiabDocs Program Supporter, is launching a Request for Proposals (RFP) to support the development of novel, real-world solutions to help people with T1D exercise safely and to improve their quality of life. Researchers and clinicians are expected to partner with statistical teams to analyze the real-world data that was collected under Helmsley’s T1D Exercise Initiative (T1-DEXI), build collaborations with other necessary third parties, and to test their novel solutions in studies with people with T1D. The overarching purpose of this initiative is to move real-world data towards real-world solutions.1
