Novo Nordisk Supports Four San Francisco-based Organizations In Fight Against Diabetes
Date:11/15/2012

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Novo Nordisk, a world leader in diabetes care, announced today that it has awarded $80,000 in sponsorships to four San Francisco community organizations. The San Francisco sponsorships are part of the nationwide Novo Nordisk Community Care initiative to help rally communities to address the diabetes crisis and support local programs designed to make an impact for people living with type 2 diabetes. According to data commissioned by Novo Nordisk from the Institute of Alternative Futures, as of 2010, San Francisco had more than 433,000 people with diagnosed and undiagnosed diabetes and an additional 1.1 million people in danger of developing diabetes.

Novo Nordisk convened two community leaders to help evaluate the many innovative programs that were presented for sponsorship – Marlene Bedrich, RNC, MS, CDE at the Diabetes Teaching Center at UCSF and Jeffrey Manese, Physician Assistant at the Kapla Medical Group. Programs that received funding were considered to be the most creative, impactful, and meaningful for the community and took an innovative approach to addressing type 2 diabetes.     

"We know from research that type 2 diabetes has far-reaching impact in San Francisco and that local organizations play a critical role in addressing the problem through programs that understand the local population," said Bedrich. "By providing support to incubate innovative programs on a local level, Novo Nordisk is providing an important resource to help address the diabetes epidemic in San Francisco."

Organizations that received sponsorships target a range of diverse communities in San Francisco and include:

  • Dance Out Diabetes – They will expand their "Dance Out Diabetes Cash and Care for Wellness" program with new diabetes education workshops and dance offerings in San Francisco County communities.
  • LIFT – Levanta
