Novo Nordisk gets serious in ‘Get Real’ diabetes campaign with spokesman, actor and patient Anthony Anderson
Actor Anthony Anderson is a long-time Novo Nordisk spokesman and Type 2 diabetes advocate. As the star of the hit TV show “Black-ish,” Anderson first teamed with Novo for the original “Get Real About Diabetes” campaign launch in 2018.
