We would like to thank everyone that came out on Saturday March 10th, for the OHA College Day and Symposium. The events were a great success! We have posted College Day pictures on our Facebook page and currently have Symposium videos on our Youtube page. We would also like to thank all our great speakers at the Symposium: Jill Malmgren, Dr. David Krol, Benjamin Bluml, Julie Coan, and Dr. Maureen Shannon. Everyone in attendance was enthralled by their research, passion, and commitment to alleviating oral health disparity in under-served communities. The turn-out to the College Day event was fantastic!
There were more than seventy attendees and there were ten posters submitted to our annual poster competition. The first prize went to UCSF dental student Ivy Vuong ($100 Amazon card prize); Second place went to Duy Bui ($75 Amazon card prize); Third place went to OHA student scholar Angela Rae Tolentino ($50 Amazon card prize). We would like to further acknowledge and thank Jill Malmgren and the National Children's Oral Health Foundation for once again donating funds for food (breakfast, lunch, and reception) and for poster prizes. Lastly, we want to thank all of the UCSF students who helped make these events great! See you next year!
