EFP publishes special magazine to celebrate 30 years of promoting periodontal health
The EFP has published a special magazine to celebrate its 30th anniversary.
The commemorative magazine, 30 years promoting periodontal health for a better life, describes the evolution of the federation from its beginnings in a conversation between Ubele van der Velden and Jean-Louis Giovannoli in 1985 which led to a series of meetings culminating in the formal foundation of the EFP in Amsterdam on 13 December 1991.
The commemorative magazine describes the work of the 30 presidents, six secretaries general, and five treasurers who have served the EFP as it has grown from a federation of 11 European national societies of periodontology to today’s 37 societies across the globe. Written by Joanna Kamma, EFP publications editor and former EFP president (2005-06), the 42-page magazine features testimonies from many of the people who have played key roles in the federation’s work.
