  • Access to healthcare – programs that provide access to health and human services
  • Education – initiatives that enhance the quality of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education

Sponsorship support is given to organizations for activities that have a positive impact on Novo Nordisk therapeutic areas of interest and have demonstrated the ability to work toward initiatives that benefit the healthcare profession and patient communities.
