Pittsburgh, PA - September 29, 2003
Flipside Media, Inc.
announced the launch of a pilot program for its TEACH:diabetes computer assisted learning kiosk. TEACH:diabetes assists diabetes education programs in providing individualized Diabetes Self Management Education (DSME) to patients in a structured learning environment. Flipside Media began accepting applications
today, and the pilot program will begin on October 1, 2003.
The TEACH:diabetes pilot program will allow health organizations to provide patients with the full benefits of diabetes computer- assisted learning at a significantly discounted cost, and without any long- term commitments. Patients utilizing TEACH:diabetes will receive a robust and comprehensive introduction to DSME based on up to date American Diabetes Association guidelines. Health organizations with DSME programs will have full access to the educational and administrative features the TEACH:diabetes interactive learning environment provides.
"We are very excited about introducing the TEACH:diabetes Computer Assisted Learning system. We are confident that once adopted, this tool can strengthen any existing Diabetes Self Management Education program as well as assist in the implementation of DSME programs in venues where none currently exist."

Director of Production
