Finally, Anne points out, there is the global reach she has in terms
of treating patients.
As Anne recalls, when she first decided to work for Novo Nordisk,
she was nervous she would lose out on the patient interaction.
“ Being a medical doctor,” she explains, “ you
are taught right from the beginning that it is all about treating patients.”
She quickly learned, though, what she says is captured best in one
of the Novo slogans:
“ We don’t treat one we treat millions.”
She goes on to explain what this means to her:
“ It’s not hands on in the same way,” she explains.
“ So you can’t help Ms. X sitting in front of you, however,
you help a lot of Ms. X’s, all over the globe, all the time,”
she says with an excited and genuine smile spread across her face.
