How to make your visit with your HCP more successful

Well, I’d say I’m a triple threat, but there’s only two videos…

As we end Diabetes Month, I’m proud to share my impending splash onto a small screen somewhere near you. These videos will be playing in doctor’s waiting rooms to offer people with diabetes inspiration and education.

Mid way through the pandemic I had a friend drive me to New Jersey where these were shot. Temperature taken, everyone in masks and face shields, I was make-upped and entered the studio. My five person crew were amazing and it was a lot of fun. Most of all, I believe they are five minutes of worthy service. The company that produced them, PatientPoint, offers other patient videos on varying conditions here.

The video above shares a bit of “my story.” The one below offers you four tips to make your doctor’s visit even more useful. As we with diabetes know, diabetes month or not, diabetes is an everyday affair. Wishing you well today and every day.
