Each year, Becker’s Healthcare recognizes the medical community’s top patient safety experts. The clinicians, researchers and healthcare experts highlighted are fierce advocates for safety and prioritize improving patient care in every facet of their professional careers. This year, we're incredibly proud to see  Glytec represented on such a prestigious list – our Chief Medical Officer (CMO) Dr. Jordan Messler was recognized as one of the 26 patient safety experts to know in 2022.

Dr. Messler encapsulates Glytec’s patient-first focus in every initiative he leads at our company. We’re honored to have him at the helm of our clinical team, driving continuous improvement initiatives and supporting the delivery, customer, quality, and regulatory teams to ensure ethical and safe glycemic management best practices.
