The new program will be called the Sheba Al Tadawi Diabetic Clinic in Dubai and the service will be provided by Sheba’s Institute of Endocrinology, headed by Dr. Amir Tirosh.

Monday’s kick-off event was attended by Yoel Hareven, director of the International Division & Resource Development at Sheba; Abdullah Saeed Al Naboodah,  Chairman of Al Naboodah Investments Company; Galia Barkai, director of Sheba BEYOND - the first virtual Hospital at Sheba; Marwan Ibrahim Haji Nasser, chairman and managing director of the Al Tadawi Healthcare Group; Keren Yaniv, head of International Marketing for Sheba; and Bruce Gurfein of the Phoenix Group.

“Rarely is there an opportunity to take part in a breakthrough,” Barkai wrote in a Facebook post. “This is just the beginning.”
