American Academy of Periodontology Foundation - Annual Report 2014
The mission of the American Academy of Periodontology Foundation (AAPF) is to improve the periodontal health of the public through increasing public and professional knowledge of periodontal diseases, stimulating research to generate new knowledge, and enhancing educational programs in periodontal education and practice.
Helping to educate periodontists more than ever before, this year’s theme “Reaching New Heights” exemplifies The AAP Foundation’s ability to surpass previous years accomplishments. Colorful fractal geometric shapes each built upon the other are used throughout the report as design elements to represent the consistent growth of funding which ultimately builds a dimensional and diverse profession. The application of line combined with color shapes also give a scientific feeling to the report.
The Foundation was honored to receive the William J. Gies Award for Achievement, as well as to give out over $4 million dollars to further the specialty this year.
