Founded by Chris Dudley Foundation and Novo Nordisk, Pacific Northwest Diabetes Health & Wellness Week is an annual event designed to unite our diabetes community in a collaborative effort to bring diabetes to light for an entire week! Together we can change the way diabetes is viewed and treated, and more importantly, how it evolves in the future.


Chris Dudley founded the Chris Dudley Foundation (CDF) in 1994 after his retirement from a 16-year NBA career. Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age sixteen, Chris defied the odds to achieve his greatest dream, despite the medical challenges. CDF believes that all youth with diabetes deserve encouragement to live long and healthy lives. In addition to an internationally renowned basketball camp, CDF offers educational programs, advocacy and research assistance to the greater diabetes community. Our mission is to empower and inspire all young people with diabetes to live active and dream BIG!


Novo Nordisk is a global healthcare company with 87 years of innovation and leadership in diabetes care. We put people first in everything we do; that is why we will continue to build partnerships with external organizations whenever we see that such collaboration will generate a positive and significant change for people with diabetes. From the science lab, the doctor’s clinic and the school classroom, we are relentless in our mission: we will not rest until we have defeated the diabetes pandemic.
