- Project “Gestational diabetes: a focus on women’s issues”
Motherhood is certainly one of the most important and exciting moments in a woman’s life, but it is not free from unexpected events and complications. More and more women are affected by a metabolic disorder called “gestational diabetes”, which involves an abnormal increase of glucose levels, and a series of related issues, for both the mother-to-be and her child. To help women deal with this condition, for which medical and scientific information is often lacking, Neopharmed Gentili has produced and distribution of brochures to answer the most frequently asked questions about the disease. The information material has been translated into several languages and diversified on the basis of the differences between pregnant women in terms of calorie intake and physical exercise.
- “You have diabetes: renew your driving licence safely”
The Italian legislation on fitness to drive (Decree issued on 30 November 2010 by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport, which implements Directive 2009/112/EC on the renewal or issue of driving licences to diabetics) is interpreted differently by each region and in different provinces of the same region. To shed light on the issue and help people with diabetes in the process of renewing their driving licence, Neopharmed Gentili has produced brochures, which have been distributed to all facilities involved: General Medicine clinics, Local Healthcare Facilities, Medical-Legal Commissions, and ACI (Italian Automobile Club) delegations.

- Sponsoring of the retrospective exhibition “The sign and the spirit. Furniture, painting, sculptures and jewellery” (Palazzo Reale of Milan, September 2011)
Neopharmed Gentili was the sole sponsor of a great retrospective exhibition that Palazzo Reale dedicated to Gabriella Crespi; eclectic artist, style icon, muse of the greatest international fashion designers, from Milan and an ambassador of Italian style in the world.
The Company has recognized in the special history of this imaginative and multifaceted artist, the stages and “style” of its adventure in the world of pharmaceutical research, which started in Milan in 1972 and soon became an international reality. Two seemingly distant worlds, those of an artist and a pharmaceutical company, which, in reality, are in perfect harmony and similar in their continuous research and planning that always accompanies a vision, in the ability to make ideas tangible, in the determination of an all-Italian energy making its way into the world. www.gabriellacrespi.it
