The aim of this year's campaign is to raise awareness of the association between periodontal disease and diabetes.
The BSP is:
- running a campaign in collaboration with diabetes.co.uk which is a global online diabetes community with over 500,000 members with diabetes and a database of 10,000 healthcare professionals
- carrying out a short survey to find out the level of awareness of gum disease in people with diabetes
- raising awareness of people with diabetes and dental and medical healthcare professionals using online information
- carrying out a post campaign survey to evaluate the effectiveness of the campaign in bringing about behaviour change in people with diabetes
