We are proud to support summer camps for children living with Type 1 diabetes and hemophilia. 

We are a strategic partner of the Americans Diabetes Association (ADA) summer camps, which served more than 15,000 kids and parents in 2019. In 2020, nearly 3,000 campers participated in the virtual Imagine Camp.

We also sponsor dozens of hemophilia camps across the U.S. These camps strive to provide children with bleeding disorders with a typical camp experience where possibilities, not limitations, are stressed. For many patients, camp is where essential life-skills such as self-infusion is learned.

We are proud to support educational programs that encourage healthy living and increase disease awareness, prevention, optimal treatment and management in therapeutic areas of interest. Each year, we provide funding to hundreds of independent educational grants that provide continuing education to practicing health care professionals and those in training, as well as members of the community, patients, and their caregivers.

Farmhouse-to-Your House is an innovative program developed by Novo Nordisk to combat diabetes in Mississippi. The program provides support for community-based organizations, farms and CDC-accredited Diabetes Prevention Programs in the state to help underserved people learn how to manage their care. The program partners work together in the communities they live to change the environment that drives high rates of obesity and diabetes in Mississippi. Over 14.2% of adults in Mississippi are living with diabetes, which is second highest in the nation.

The Native American Health Initiative was born from the passion, dedication, and personal experience of our employees in 2010. Its goal is to replace the current culture of diabetes with one of prevention, management and improved care. Our inaugural project is a partnership with the Rosebud Lakota Sioux Tribe of South Dakota.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Mercer County recently opened its new Outdoor Education Center in Southern New Jersey. With its urban Trenton neighborhood location, the Outdoor Education Center provides access to outside play space, gardening and environmental learning for more than 2,600 boys and girls — and Novo Nordisk was the lead funder of this project. Providing access to programming that increases youth’s healthy lifestyles is a key outcome for both the Boys & Girls Club and Novo Nordisk. To learn more, please visit www.bgcmercer.org.

We understand the importance of independence for people living with diabetes. In an effort to improve the everyday lives of patients and increase their quality of life, we support Canine Partners for Life, an organization dedicated to training service dogs.

Our support has enabled Canine Partners for Life the opportunity to develop an effective training module for diabetes alert dogs. We're proud to have supported Canine Partners for Life since 2008 in helping improve the quality of life for people living with diabetes.
