Novo Nordisk gives back with summer camp grants

PRINCETON, N.J. Novo Nordisk has given out $165,000 in grants to support summer camps for children with diabetes, the Danish drug maker announced Monday.

The company said the grants would support scholarships and fund capital improvements at 15 camps around the country.

“Novo Nordisk recognizes the important positive impact that diabetes camps can make in helping children and families with diabetes lead healthier, happier and more productive lives,” Novo Nordisk president Jerzy Gruhn said. ”By helping children and families with diabetes discover ways to manage diabetes and start developing skills to help take care of oneself, the camps are helping to change diabetes – how it is treated, how it is viewed and how the disease evolves in the future.”
