This session discussed the emerging role of Mobile Prescription Therapy-Blue Star Diabetes-as an all-inclusive application to assist the patient in diabetes self-management.

  •  
  • Motsko and Twigg were recognized in the first general session as one of eight individuals in the country chosen by AADE as “Change Champions” for their progress work in establishing a diabetes center in a non-traditional setting (a community pharmacy), for integrating medication management in their services and for their progressive use of technology in the education of individuals with diabetes.

 “This is a well-deserved honor for Geoff and John,” said Jeff Sherr, president, Apple Discount Drugs.  “From inception to the current roll out of Apple’s Core Clinical Care within the pharmacy, they have gone above and beyond all set expectations to deliver quality care and services to Delmarva’s diabetes population.”
