Global Healthcare Company Novo Nordisk Supports Students with Diabetes

Posted on December 24, 2012 by The Patterson Foundation

Students With Diabetes is growing and receiving national recognition thanks to support from Novo Nordisk, a health care company and world leader in diabetes care.

The support from the global company will help the Students with Diabetes program continue to grow its infrastructure, expand outreach and execute the programs.

Students with Diabetes is a program of Bringing Science Home and helps connect young adults living with Type 1 diabetes. Bringing Science Home is an effort created in partnership between USF Health and The Patterson Foundation to help people with chronic conditions live more optimistically.

The investment will help Students with Diabetes (SWD) expand and create new programs, including a Students with Diabetes app to be released in early 2013. In addition, the 2013 Students with Diabetes National Conference will be presented by Novo Nordisk as the title sponsor. Novo Nordisk is also helping Students with Diabetes support a few interns for summer 2013 as the interns add their talents to leading non-profit diabetes companies.

This new support means Students with Diabetes will be able to increase its reach. More young adults with Type 1 diabetes will learn about Students with Diabetes opportunities, and more young adults with Type 1 diabetes will also have the opportunity to contribute to research and programs relevant to this specific population.

Bringing Science Home believes that the best programs or interventions are designed by the people who will use the programs and will continue to operate with that philosophy to design options that allow them to involve even more people in an advisory function for this organization.
