Throughout National Diabetes Month, we will be sharing insights into Joslin’s innovations in care for diabetes and its complications as part of our mission of preventing, treating and curing diabetes. Our vision is a world free of diabetes and its complications.

This week, learn about how, as the world’s leading center in all aspects of diabetes—research, care and education—Joslin is implementing quality diabetes care in all corners of the globe.

To address the growing problem of diabetes, Joslin is forging relationships worldwide. Below is just a sampling of our global initiatives.

Helmut M. Schühsler, Ph.D., Chairman and CEO of TVM Capital Healthcare Partners (left), and John L. Brooks III (right), President and CEO of Joslin, celebrate an alliance centered on developing healthcare systems of excellence to meet the growing need for diabetes services across the care continuum in the United Arab Emirates, which has twice the incidence of diabetes as the United States.

With young patients in her home country of Venezuela, Morella de Grossmann (center right), a member of Joslin’s Board of Directors, is a key supporter of the Joslin Vision Network, a technology that takes images of the back of the eye, which are transmitted to Joslin experts for evaluation and treatment planning.

Osama Hamdy, M.D., Ph.D., founder of Joslin’s acclaimed Why WAIT program for losing weight and gaining control of diabetes, recently presented this program to healthcare professionals in Russia. Novartis Russia has licensed the use of the program throughout the Russian federation. The program’s manual is being translated into Russian and other languages.
