 CASCADE MEDICAL NAMES SALES & MARKETING VICE PRESIDENT
 Ronald Jackson Held Positions at Totes and Gillette
 MINNEAPOLIS, June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Cascade Medical, Inc., Eden Prairie, Minn., has appointed Ronald Jackson to the newly created position of vice president - sales and marketing.
 From 1990 to 1992, Jackson was national sales manager with Totes Incorporated - Mass Trade Division, in Cincinnati. Prior to that, he held a variety of positions with The Gillette Company's Personal Care Division for 21 years.
 "We are pleased to add Ron's strong sales and marketing background to our team at Cascade Medical," said Richard E. Jones, Ph.D., president and CEO of Cascade Medical. "His work will be instrumental in Cascade's efforts to obtain greater market share worldwide, and to further strengthen our presence in drug, food, mass merchandise and other retail outlets."
 While at Gillette, Jackson's positions included director of the National Accounts Department, manager of Sales Personnel Development, and various sales management positions throughout the United States.
 Jackson has a bachelor of science degree in marketing from the University of Southwestern Louisiana.
 Cascade Medical developed, manufactures and holds the patents for its CheckMate(TM) blood glucose home monitoring system and disposable test strips. CheckMate users purchase a microprocessor-based meter and can quickly determine their blood glucose level with the use of disposable test strips.
 In January 1992, Cascade Medical regained worldwide marketing rights to the system from the Wampole Laboratories division of New York-based Carter-Wallace, Inc., which had marketed it under the name Answer(R) Blood Glucose Monitoring System. Cascade Medical renamed the system CheckMate.
 Cascade Medical has established broad distribution in the United States and is presently completing agreements with distributors in key international markets. The company operates a 24-hour-a-day telephone customer support center at 1-800-525-6718.
 Cascade Medical, which is privately held, was founded in 1989 with the mission of becoming the premier supplier of diabetes products worldwide. Cascade Medical's CheckMate Blood Glucose Monitoring System is designed for user convenience and safety and has several unique features, including a built-in lancing device and automatic calibration.
