Academy Award winner Olympia Dukakis and her husband, Louis Zorich, partnered with Novo Nordisk to launch ASK. SCREEN. KNOW. in 2009 to call attention to the underutilized Medicare Diabetes Screening Benefit. The program encourages Medicare eligible adults at risk age 65 and older to talk to their healthcare providers about the Medicare diabetes screening.
The Diabetes Camps project helps kids with diabetes have a positive and rewarding summer camp experience. There are more than 185 diabetes camps across North America and each year more than 3,000 children attend. Novo Nordisk has provided more than $300,000 in financial assistance to the camps and the campers. We also created the I Can Do More camp program, which makes learning about diabetes fun and rewarding while empowering children to seek support when they need it.
