November 14th was an important day at Sanofi offices worldwide, when colleagues gathered to recognize World Diabetes Day (WDD), a day set aside around the world for diabetes awareness. Globally, diabetes is an accelerating public health issue. By 2050, it’s estimated that one in every three people will have diabetes. 

As a company, we are committed to meeting the challenges that people living with diabetes face through innovative treatments and education. As part of this commitment, we strive to ensure our employees are well informed about the condition, our efforts and how everyone can play a role in supporting people with diabetes and those at risk.

It’s particularly appropriate that on World Diabetes Day we also announced the winner of the Data Design Diabetes Innovation Challenge. The Challenge embodies the spirit of what we are working to accomplish as a company – fostering innovative new products and services to help people living with diabetes.
