For 2016, Girl Scouts is unveiling Digital Cookie 2.0, an enhanced version of the Digital Cookie platform that makes Digital Cookie more fun, engaging and educational than ever for girls, while simplifying how customers buy their favorite Girl Scout Cookies and have them delivered right to their doorstep. With an updated website that gives girls access to fun and educational quizzes, games, videos and other activi- ties, Girl Scouts is cranking up the inter- active nature of Digital Cookie, and expanding ways for girls to give back to their communities. Each girl's Digital Cookie experience is tailored to her age level, giving them engaging and age- appropriate ways to learn about e-com- merce. The leading "multichannel" entrepreneurial program for girls in grades K-12, Digital Cookie 2.0's new mobile applica- tion also expands m-commerce lessons to all girls, replicating the transactional ele- ments of the website. The new app, avail- able in select councils, teaches invaluable lessons about mobile sales, tracking and money management. This new app, along with the original Digital Cookie mobile application debuted at CES 2015, will allow participating girls to learn skills that give them an edge when they enter OLYMPIC SKIER CONQUERS DIABETES WITH DEXCOM CGM Four-time Olympic cross-country skier and 17-time National Champion winner Kris Freeman has many triumphs in his athletic career.

"I decided I was going to prove him wrong." And prove him wrong he did. Currently, Freeman is training for the 2018 Olympics in South Korea. After competing four previous times in the Olympics, Freeman is well aware of how hard he needs to train and the tight con- trol he needs to keep on his glucose lev- els. "Whether you're an elite athlete or just running to the store, if you have dia- betes you should always know what your glucose levels are. Diabetes is a numbers game, especially when you're training," explained Freeman. "Using the Dexcom Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) system, it allows me to have the data I need to control my diabetes. With read- ings every five minutes that go direct- ly to the r e c e i v e r (Dexcom G5 M o b i l e Continuous Glucose Monitoring System, User's Guide, 2015), it allows me to make important decisions so I can stay competitive." Freeman and his coach review his glucose data after every workout to see how his training affects his levels. "During high interval training, it's a lit- tle harder to predict how much insulin I'll need," explained Freeman. "With Continued on Page 77 Continued on Page 77
