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.
