The objective of the JSDEI is to raise awareness of the association between diabetes and oral health. Recognizing that early and proper treatment of periodontal disease can have a profound effect on the control of diabetes and its complications, the Sunstar Foundation and Joslin have engaged in education and research to improve knowledge and practices.
Aimed at professionals from the medical and dental community, as well as patients and the general public, JSDEI plans three symposia in the upcoming months. In 2015 it will be held on 26 July in Tokyo, Japan; on 6 November in Barcelona, Spain; and on 15 January 2016 in Singapore. Since 2008, several high-level scientific JSDEI seminars have been held internationally, including in Japan, the United States and Europe. The seminars have attracted key opinion leaders in the fields of periodontology, dentistry and dental hygiene, medicine and internal medicine, diabetology, endocrinology, and nutrition.
Mr. Masakazu Nakamura, Sunstar Suisse S.A. Chairman of the Board & CEO, commented, “Sunstar is pleased to continue supporting the pioneering work of the Sunstar Foundation together with Joslin as our global strategic initiative, educating clinicians and patients about the strong link between oral health and diabetes. We look forward to continue to make a real difference in people’s lives through expanding our collaborative activities to new areas in Europe and Asia.”
