Students with Diabetes Receives $90,000 Novo Nordisk Grant

Posted on October 16, 2013 by The Patterson Foundation

Students with Diabetes, which creates community and connections among young people with diabetes, recently received a $90,000 grant from global healthcare company Novo Nordisk.

The grant will support the Students With Diabetes Internship Program, the Students With Diabetes National Conference, and the creation of an advocacy program within Students With Diabetes. With this additional funding, Students with Diabetes is predicting a 50 percent increase in internships and 25 percent growth in attendance rate at its national conference.  

"We are grateful for the support of Novo Nordisk," said Dr. Nicole Johnson, executive director of Bringing Science Home. "Their faith in our program reinforces the importance of our work with young adults who live with diabetes.”

Students with Diabetes is a program of Bringing Science Home, a partnership between USF Health and The Patterson Foundation to help people with chronic conditions live more optimistically.
