read the press release

Novo Nordisk awarded sponsorships totaling $80,000 to 4 metro Atlanta community organizations to support programs that educate people living with type 2 diabetes on how to better manage their diabetes and reduce the risk of long-term diabetes related complications. The sponsorships are part of the Novo Nordisk Community Care program – a new initiative that aims to promote enduring, sustainable change for people living with diabetes. The groups being honored tonight reach a range of diverse communities in Atlanta and will work diligently to improve patients' lives.

"In Atlanta, we know it is better to give a hand up, rather than a handout. I congratulate the organizations dedicated to making real change and thank Novo Nordisk for helping make it happen," said Nazeera Dawood, Health Promotion Program Manager, Fulton County Department of Health & Wellness. "Only by working together can we reach at-risk populations to improve the management of diabetes in our city."
