Waukesha, Wisconsin – March 24, 2022 – Dave Wendland, vice president strategic relations and member of the owner group at HRG, will be moderating a panel at the ECRM Diabetes Care Program, in Chicago, Illinois, on Wednesday, March 30, 8:20-9:20 am.

The session, “Transforming Care: A World of Integrated, Frictionless Tools for People with Diabetes,” will examine tactical steps that will improve access to programs, products, and services across the retail landscape. Additionally, the conversation will address overall patient experience, collaboration with healthcare providers, reduction in costs, and strategies to overcome typical roadblocks that may be impeding meaningful change. Panelists include:

  • Becky Dant, Director of Professional Services at Costco
  • Graham Hurrell, Director Global Customer Insights at LifeScan
  • Kevin Lohmeyer, Sr. Director Category Management – Consumer at AmerisourceBergen Corporation
  • Joe Montoto, Rx Srv- Procurement/PBM Managed Care/Clinical Srv at Wakefern Food Corporation

Wendland stated, “Diabetes continues to be one of the largest health challenges in the United States. As I noted in this article for ECRM, it’s time for a new approach, since we cannot continue addressing the category and those affected the same way expecting different results. I’m eager to reveal efforts underway to transform this category at retail to encourage easier treatment and maintenance.”

Wendland will also lead two sessions in one of the Thought Interaction Pods, a roundtable discussion with fellow industry professionals. The topic is, “Empower Customers – Reinventing the Retail Experience for People with Diabetes.”
