Novo Nordisk donates $50,000 to Diabetes Hands Foundation

Donation made in recognition of DHF's outreach efforts, drug maker says

PRINCETON, N.J. — Novo Nordisk has donated $50,000 to an organization that raises awareness about diabetes and connects people living with it, the Danish drug maker said.

The company said the donation, to the Diabetes Hands Foundation, was meant to recognize the Drive the Switch program, which it said had motivated more than 10,000 people to pledge to talk to loved ones and their doctors about insulin options.

"Many people with diabetes don't realize that they have options when it comes to their diabetes management," DHF president Manny Hernandez said. "This campaign has done a great job of encouraging patients and their caregivers to have that dialogue with their healthcare professional and determine the best treatment option for them."
