Rick is a wonderful mentor and it took him years to get there, and I just want to thank Dr. Neeti Choudhury for being with us and your passion too doctor, and I know there are physicians such as yourself ready to team with patients who say, ‘Okay help me do better.’ and you’re willing to partner with them. Thank you for your dedication and thanks for your dedication to Rick.
Thank you. You’re welcome. You know I’m there to support, but Rick is really doing a great job helping himself.
Okay. And Rick, all the best to you. You and Carol are going to dance at a lot of weddings, okay?

Okay, well thank you for being us today. This is what we do on Patient Power, and when it comes to diabetes let’s hope we can help millions of people.
