Date:9/13/2012

HOUSTON, Sept. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Novo Nordisk, a world leader in diabetes care, announced today that it has awarded $60,000 in sponsorships to three Houston community organizations. The Houston 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, Houston had 804,600 people with diagnosed and undiagnosed diabetes and an additional 1.5 million in danger of developing diabetes.

Novo Nordisk convened a panel of local diabetes experts and community leaders to help evaluate the many innovative programs that were presented for sponsorship. The panel comprised of Dr. Nicole Hare-Everline, Wellness Director for the City of Houston; Lourdes Cuellar, Director of Pharmacy at Memorial Hermann; Dr. Adlia Ebeid, Program Director at Texas Southern University Pharmacy School; Dr. Kevin McKinney, UTMB Professor of Internal Medicine, and Ralston Creswell, Senior Executive Director of ADA Houston. Programs that received funding were considered to be the most creative, impactful, and meaningful for the community and took an innovative approach to addressing the problem of type 2 diabetes.  

"We know from research that type 2 diabetes has far-reaching impact in our city and that local Houston organizations play a critical role in addressing the problem through programs that tap into understanding of the local population," said Dr. Nicole Hare-Everline. "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 Houston."

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