"Deborah and I worked together at Welkin Health, where she served as an early advisor to the company. Deborah was a fount of information about the latest trends in diabetes care, a huge proponent of technology, and a great resource on how technology can be used to deliver education outside of the confines of the clinic. She is also a fierce advocate for proactive coaching to improve diabetes management. Deborah has incredible breadth of knowledge, is a talented clinician, and is a joy to collaborate with."
Stephanie Bousheri, Welkin Health
" My experience of working with Dr. Greenwood before and during AADE 16 is that she is an enlightened educator, one who understands the present more deeply than most, and thus, in my experience, has the most exciting ideas about how to produce new and effective results in passing knowledge to the people who need it most."
e-Patient Dave deBronkart
" Inspiring. Creative. Innovative. Energetic. Hard working. Tech savvy. Kind. These are some quick notes about Deb. I first met Deb when I was sitting in the audience at the AADE (American Association of Diabetes Educators) annual meeting. Deb was the AADE president giving the welcome speech to the conference. Her presentation inspired me to get more involved with AADE and gave me hope for our future as diabetes educators. It was exciting to hear someone like minded speak about technology and innovation. I consider Deb a diabetes educator mentor in the world of Diabetes technology."
