Rick talks to Phil Southerland of Supersapiens, this week.
Supersapiens is a real-time energy management system for athletes powered by Abbott Libre Sense Glucose Sport Biosensor, empowering you with live data and insights around the key variable for athletic performance: Glucose.
Supersapiens is the brainchild of Founder and CEO, Phil Southerland. Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at seven months old, doctors told his mother he would either be blind or dead by the age of 25. Despite the grim diagnosis, Phil didn’t just overcome the odds – he reimagined what was possible with diabetes and went on to achieve incredible success as a professional cyclist.
While this system is used by athletes of all backgrounds, it is especially crucial for athletes competing with diabetes. With November being National Diabetes Awareness Month, I thought this would be the perfect time to share Phil’s story.
Phil Southerland is a global ambassador for diabetes and is committed to educating and empowering the 1.2 billion people across the globe associated with the condition. He is the CEO and co-founder of Team Novo Nordisk, the first all-diabetic cycling team and CEO and founder of Supersapiens, a groundbreaking continuous glucose monitoring ecosystem that allows athletes to gain insights into how glucose and fuel impact their bodies in real time.
