Novo Nordisk To Award $80,000 To Local Programs That Help People Living With Diabetes In Portland As Part Of Educational Initiative

PORTLAND, Ore., Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Novo Nordisk, a world leader in diabetes care, announced today that it is now accepting applications from local Portland nonprofit organizations for 2013 Novo Nordisk Community Care sponsorships. Through the sponsorships, Novo Nordisk will invest $80,000 to support local organizations that educate people living with type 2 diabetes. For more information about the sponsorship criteria and to download an application form, interested nonprofit organizations should visit http://www.novonordisk-us.com/communitycare. Applications are due September 16, 2013.

"Nearly 380,000 Oregonians are projected to have diabetes by 2015," said Diana Blankman, Director, US Corporate Giving and Social Impact at Novo Nordisk. "The diabetes epidemic is not slowing down. At Novo Nordisk, we consider it our duty to continue to work closely with these community-based organizations that are vital to creating change in diabetes education from the ground up."

Since the program's inception in 2011, Novo Nordisk Community Care has awarded nearly $715,000 to organizations in nine markets across the country and has sponsored more than 36 diverse community-based programs. Last year's sponsored programs were selected for their distinctive applications focused on education and resources for patients, ranging from healthy living educational workshops and dance classes, community health advocate/peer mentor training and patient empowerment programs. This year, Novo Nordisk will offer new sponsorship opportunities to eligible nonprofit organizations dedicated to educating and empowering patients in Portland to become more engaged in their health and management of type 2 diabetes. 

Diabetes has become a global health crisis and is taking a major toll on our communities, including Portland. A recent model from the Institute for Alternative Futures, commissioned by Novo Nordisk, estimates that the number of Americans living with diabetes will increase 64 percent between 2010 and 2025, affecting more than 53 million people. And, in Oregon, it's estimated that the number of people with diabetes will increase 88 percent between 2010 and 2025, to affect more than 545,000 people. This dramatic increase could mean a total of $5.4 billion in total medical and indirect societal costs of diabetes for the state of Oregon by 2025.
