Innovations and Opportunities for Personal and Professional CGM in Clinical Practice (Non-CE/CME) 
Speaker: Davida Kruger, MSN, APN-BC, BC-ADM
Sponsored by: Dexcom

Diabetes requires self-management 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Along with self-management, there are multiple decisions that need to be made including food choices, physical activity and medication dosing. Healthcare professionals have an opportunity to leverage technology to support people with diabetes to decrease the burden of living with a chronic condition and facilitate engagement in discovery learning. Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is an amazing tool to support people as they learn about their own diabetes and how their choices impact their glucose patterns. Learn how to leverage the power of Dexcom CGM technology to optimize glycemic outcomes in your patients.
