One-day workshop for families of young people with obesity


Do you live with a child or teenager that has obesity, type 2 diabetes, or both? We would like to hear more about your family experiences. We are preparing a one-day workshop to better understand the daily challenges of life with these diseases so we can improve the design of clinical trials with young people in mind.


We want to understand your challenges

Novo Nordisk engages directly with people who have serious chronic diseases and their families?through our Disease Experience Expert Panels (DEEPs). By sharing their experiences, DEEP members contribute valuable insights and practical knowledge that enable us to develop better medicines and promote better health outcomes.

We want to understand your challenges

Who can join the workshop?

Families of children living with obesity and/or type 2 diabetes
We are inviting approximately 10 families who have at least one child/teenager aged between 5 and 17 with obesity and/or type 2 diabetes. The workshop will be conducted in English.

What are you expected to share?
We need you because you know best! You can share practical knowledge, daily routines and the challenges of living with and managing a chronic disease. Your contribution will help us to set meaningful goals for young trial participants.

Participating in the workshop

Once you have applied for the project (see below), we will ask you to complete a short survey. We will then select potential families to participate in the workshop and schedule a call with participants to discuss the workshop details.

If you are selected, you will be invited to attend a one-day workshop in Copenhagen, Denmark, where you will have an opportunity to share your experiences. The workshop agenda and the topics to be covered will be agreed with you in advance.

Your participation will be compensated, and Novo Nordisk will cover your expenses, travel and accommodation.

What will the workshop be like?

Our main goal will be to listen to your story. Our clinical trial team members may also ask you some questions to learn more about your opinions, daily challenges, hopes and future plans. For example:

- How do you/your child feel about the disease?
- What are your main daily challenges related to the disease?
- What kind of support do you get now?
- What kind of support would you find useful?

We are guided by a patient-centred approach

Disease Experience Expert Panel
At Novo Nordisk, we believe that people affected by serious chronic diseases – including patients and their families – should no longer be seen as passive recipients of care, but as experts in their own right.

Our Disease Experience Expert Panels (DEEPs) bring together individuals that can provide disease-specific insights and advice based on their own experiences. Their input guides how we research and develop new treatments, and how we support people living with serious chronic diseases to achieve better health and a better quality of life.
