The IPPF Receives Grant from Sy Syms Foundation to Accelerate Diagnosis Times of Rare Diseases
Since developing the Awareness Campaign in 2013, the IPPF has reached thousands of dental professionals and students. Due to its continued growth and impact, the Awareness Campaign transitioned into a permanent Awareness Program in 2017. This year the IPPF Awareness Program launched a media and marketing campaign that stresses the importance of a biopsy when diagnosing pemphigus and pemphigoid (P/P).
The new campaign centers on a single take-away for dental professionals:
"We are incredibly grateful for the continued support of the Sy Syms Foundation,"
