Letter from the Editor, #692: Team Novo Nordisk

Last week we had our reporter Jacqueline Middleton, and photographer Jay Maragon, at the final stage of the USA Pro Challenge. As you may know, this year Novo Nordisk has fielded a professional cycling team where all riders have type 1 diabetes. Jackie got a chance to meet with Phil Sutherland and the riders to ask them some questions, and Jay got some great pictures as well.

Over the past four years we have brought you a lot of information on shared medical appointments and how they might benefit your patients as well as your checking account. Now a new study from Housden L, Wong ST, Dawes M. in the CMAJ 2013 Aug 12 edition points to the value of these shared medical appointments for diabetes patients.
