I am a runner, a fundraiser, a dad, a husband, and a marathoner. This isn't my first time taking on the Boston Marathon, or fundraising. It is the first time taking it on in my new job! This has been a HUGE year. I got married, my children are becoming teenagers, and I changed careers. I am THRILLED to be working at the Forsyth Institute. Pioneering Discoveries Profound Change. What does that mean? Here at the institute our team of scientists and researchers are unlocking the mysteries of the mouth. Oral Health research is a powerful platform for solving personal and community health challenges. I am excited to be working here and jazzed to be running. Let's GO!
The Forsyth Institute began its journey to improve oral health over 100 years ago. In that time, the Forsyth transformed oral health care practices, and discovered surprising links between oral conditions and global health threats like heart disease, diabetes, and even certain cancers and infectious diseases.
Oral health research is a powerful platform for solving personal and community health challenges.
Forsyth's research and development promotes more than oral health and childhood wellness. They are unlocking secrets to longevity and global health through research in:
• Diabetes, obesity, and heart disease
• Personalized medicine
