Letter from the Editor #679: Sheri Colberg’s New Book

Sheri R. Colberg, PhD, FACSM has been writing for us for the past seven years and she is our go-to guru when it comes to anything that has to do with diabetes and physical activity. We are proud to announce that her new book, Exercise and Diabetes: A Clinician’s Guide to Prescribing Physical Activity, will be released at the ADA meeting in June, and she will be signing copies in the ADA bookstore on Saturday, June 22nd. This week she gives us a sneak preview with Hypoglycemia Treatment and Prevention Related to Physical Activity.

As a pharmacist I spend a good amount of time trying to get my colleagues to work with prescribers to improve outcomes and care, and then have to convince prescribers that having a pharmacist on their team is worth the investment. This week’s Item #2 looks at a prospective study that demonstrates a positive impact on glycemic control and diabetes-related health maintenance as a result of pharmacist-physician collaborative agreement. If you are looking for a way to give better care to your patients and maximize your quality scores, read this article.
