"This is a game changer for patients and health care providers across the country…Not only can patients now educate themselves, but they're also empowered to take control of their health -- and physicians, trainers and nurses are partners in all of that. With the added support of the Jabra Sport Pulse wireless earbuds, meeting individual health objectives is now as easy as listening to music or making a phone call," said Scott Lutch, MD, FACC, CMO, CSCS, NSCA, Chief Medical Officer at TrainerMD
