Novo Nordisk's Cities Changing Diabetes program is designed to
address the social and cultural factors that can increase type 2
diabetes vulnerability among certain people living in urban
environments. Today, the program has established local partnerships in
more than 30 cities around the world (in the US, Houston and
Philadelphia), reaching more than 150 million individuals, to help
prevent and control urban diabetes.
MyDiabetesHQ Live is a weekly live, interactive broadcast on YouTube
and Facebook produced and hosted by Cities Changing Diabetes' Houston
and Philadelphia volunteers. The forum provides an opportunity for
discussion around topics helping people with diabetes thrive,
including health equity, mental health and various social determinants
of health issues impacting a person's ability to manage diabetes.
