A quick note from Gary… March Madness, Diabetes-Style
As a sports nut, I just love this time of year. Basketball and hockey playoffs are right on the horizon. Spring training is in full-swing. And football… well, football never sleeps. But the biggest event this month is the NCAA basketball tournament, complete with brackets, brackets, and more brackets. Imagine if there was a diabetes management tournament: Could a young upstart like Tandem knock off top-seeded Medtronic? Which meter and CGM systems would prevail? And for that matter, which member of the diabetes care team would win out? I can envision endocrinologists wiping out primary care providers before facing a tough test against nurse-practitioners who barely survived a scare from the scrappy dietitians.
It would be fun to complete an entire 64-team bracket made up of diabetes products and services, with those deemed most valuable advancing to the final rounds. Opinions and personal perspectives would obviously play a role in deciding the winners, but one thing that everyone should be able to agree on is that YOU are more valuable than any device or resource. Your skills, energy and motivation are the most powerful forces in the diabetes world. So bet on yourself! Invest in the best tools you can access, and learn how to use them with the proficiency of an all-star.
We’re here to coach you every step of the way – just give us a call. Remember, there’s nothing we can’t accomplish if we work together.
I hope you and yours enjoy all the “madness” March has to offer!
