Our Focus

Educational Programs

Our support of independent education programs demonstrates our commitment to using our resources to build a better, healthier world. We support scientifically sound, fair balanced, and independent programs designed to meet the educational needs of patients and the community, and the needs of HCPs in ways that measurably grow their skills and knowledge for the benefit of patients.

Types of Educational Programs Supported

  • HCP Education
  • Community and Patient Health Education

Evaluation of Educational Grant Requests

Each request is evaluated on its merits and available funding. We strive to fund as many worthwhile programs as possible, however, as the need for support continues to grow, we are unable to fund every request. Our internal review committee evaluates grant requests and supports programs that

  • Align with Novo Nordisk therapeutic areas and educational strategy
  • Identify an unmet educational need that is clearly presented in a needs assessment and supported with up-to-date references
  • Are fair balanced and incorporate evidence-based medicine where applicable
  • Assist HCPs, patients and/or the community in optimally managing their disease
  • May positively impact the lives of patients
