Recently, the Healthcare Planning & Development Department at Dasman Diabetes Institute, which was founded by Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences, coordinated the second Live webcast session for the Joslin University International Program. The session was held on 30th April, 2014.

The session was live from Boston with Dr. Om Ganda, who is a Senior Physician, and Director of the Lipid Clinic at the Joslin Diabetes Center, and Associate Clinical Professor of medicine at the Harvard Medical School in Boston. Dr Ganda has been a co-investigator for several National Institutes of Health studies, including the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial and the Diabetes Prevention Program. Dr. Ganda has authored more than 120 publications including 45 original articles, 40 review articles, and 25 book chapters.

Many attendees enjoyed the session a lot and hope the next will be longer. Holding such activities is in accordance with the mission of the Institute to promote awareness amongst the healthcare professionals.
