NovoNordisk has awarded $500,000 to the Pitt School of Pharmacy to support the school’s DM Educate project, a comprehensive 12-module online diabetes-management course that is available to faculty and students at pharmacy schools throughout the country. This gift brings the total amount of NovoNordisk’s support for the creation and marketing of DM Educate to $1.1 million.

The course was made available to schools of pharmacy in July 2006. So far, 66 schools have registered to use the course. Some 4,000 students are projected to participate in the course in its first year.

This latest funding from NovoNordisk will be used to offer DM Educate to additional pharmacy students as well as practicing pharmacists.
