Sponsor Highlight

Novo Nordisk is the 2014 Presenting Sponsor for Stop Diabetes @ Work in the San Francisco Bay Area

Novo Nordisk is a global health care company with 90 years of innovation and leadership in diabetes care. In the San Francisco Bay Area, Novo Nordisk has partnered with our office so we can bring Stop Diabetes @ Work to local employers. Stop Diabetes @ Work, an evidence-based program that, in cooperation with employers, addresses diabetes awareness, detection, prevention and successful management. This program can be used as a stand alone healthy work site initiative or it can be used in conjunction with a larger work site wellness program.

With the help of Novo Nordisk, we can reach out to more companies with speakers and programs geared toward their unique needs and culture. Interesting speakers, along with quality information are key to success with this program. Recently, Novo Nordisk brought former pro football player Kendall Simmons, who has type 1 diabetes, to Hill Physicians Medical Group and the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission. Novo Nordisk has also helped bring certified diabetes educators to the Solano County Partnership Health Plan as well as to Hill Physicians.
