Warner Music Nashville artist RaeLynn and entertainer Ben Vereen have joined diabetes care organization Novo Nordisk’s Patient Ambassador Education Program.
The program allows influential individuals to share their stories, and to encourage and inform others affected by diabetes.
RaeLynn was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 12. Vereen was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2007. Both will take part in community and educational events around the country on behalf of Novo Nordisk.
“I am so excited to partner with Novo Nordisk to show others that successful diabetes management can be integrated into daily life,” said RaeLynn. “I plan to use my role as a diabetes patient ambassador to teach people with diabetes that it shouldn’t hinder them from following their dreams. I am living proof that this can happen.”
“I am proud to work with Novo Nordisk to help empower others living with diabetes and let them know that diabetes does not have to hold you back,” said Vereen. “As an entertainer, motivational speaker and an activist, I want to raise awareness of diabetes and encourage others to support one another.”
“Novo Nordisk is dedicated to providing resources and support through the Patient Ambassador Education Program, as we believe patients and their experiences are at the center of all we do,” said Camille Lee, Senior Vice President, Diabetes Marketing, Novo Nordisk Inc. “We are thrilled that RaeLynn and Ben have joined our Patient Ambassador team and look forward to seeing the impact they will make on the diabetes community.”
