On behalf of Abbott, we would like to invite you to explore how the FreeStyle Libre systems can be integrated into your practice to help manage your patients living with diabetes. Join Dr. Eden Miller as she discusses the FreeStyle Foundations program, a tool to help you save time, optimize CGM workflow, and enhance expertise for the care team.

Dr. Eden Miller is a board-certified family practitioner and diabetes specialist, as well as the CEO of Diabetes and Obesity Care in Bend, Oregon, where she currently practices. Dr. Miller has particular expertise and interest in diabetes technology, clinical research and healthcare policy. As a person living with type 1 diabetes herself, her motto is that she “only succeeds as a provider if she turns patients into experts on their own disease.”

Using real-life cases and everyday challenges, Dr. Miller will present FreeStyle Foundations as a tool to discuss best practices for training patients, streamlining clinic workflow and engaging team members to feel confident in supporting their patients living with diabetes. There will be time for questions to help engage in meaningful discussion on how you can incorporate CGM to help your patients achieve better outcomes. FreeStyle Foundations helps you increase your knowledge with self-guided, bite-sized, evolving training so that you can most effectively use the FreeStyle Libre Systems in your practice.

We hope you’ll join this webinar and have the opportunity to witness Dr. Miller’s passion, dedication and expertise as she discusses optimization of incorporating the FreeStyle Libre systems into your practice.
