Novo Nordisk in the US – Teaming Up to Change Diabetes

Jun 3, 2015 2:00 PM ET
Campaign: The TBL Quarterly

For the past 25 years, Novo Nordisk has been operating in the US with a focused commitment to improve the health of the millions of people living with diabetes. One of the key ingredients for the company’s success is collaboration. The latest issue of Novo Nordisk’s TBL Quarterly opens the playbook and shows how teamwork is helping make a difference for patients.

June 3, 2015 /3BL Media/ – Today, Novo Nordisk published a new issue of its quarterly sustainability magazine, TBL Quarterly with focus on the US. Diabetes affects 29 million people in the US and is changing the health of its citizens and putting pressure on the delivery of healthcare. Making a positive difference for patients and the healthcare system requires partnerships and collaborations with communities and with those who have a stake in how the US confronts diabetes.

The new TBL Quarterly, Collaborating for better care – changing diabetes in the US uncovers the stories of how Novo Nordisk collaborates in the fight against diabetes.

“Novo Nordisk is a diabetes leader in the US, but we cannot continue on top in the same, traditional ‘big pharma’ way,” says Jesper Høiland, executive vice president, Novo Nordisk US. “With the prevalence of diabetes rising each year, we know that making a difference is not something we can do on our own.”

In the new issue of TBL Quarterly, Novo Nordisk maps out some of the current challenges to preventing, diagnosing and improving the treatment of diabetes. Through feature articles and infographics, the company shows how collaborations and partnerships can contribute to better health, including understanding the drivers of urban diabetes in Houston, ensuring diabetes screening reaches people at risk, creating shared value for Novo Nordisk and society, and maximizing the impact of corporate giving.
