We will all have stories to tell in the future about how we adapted and learned from the challenges presented by the pandemic over the last 10+ months.
As a school, we will be collecting those stories and will look to create a special collection of materials and memories so that we — and future generations — will have a record to look back on. Please stay tuned as that effort gets underway.
The American Dental Association is also collecting stories. The ADA is launching the JADA+ COVID-19 Monograph — a digital collection of stories, reflections, and accounts from any perspective, in any format, including articles, essays, podcasts, videos, graphics and photos—that is open to all contributors, including dental students and practitioners.
Our school will be submitting materials to the ADA COVID-19 Monograph. However, I also wanted to call your attention to it in case you would like to submit your own personal story. Learn more here.
One of our most recent success stories is the collaboration to launch the COVID-19 vaccine clinic last weekend.
I had the opportunity to be interviewed by KRON4 last Friday to help tell our story. I was honored to share the good work that students, faculty, staff, and alumni of the Dugoni School family were doing to launch our first vaccine clinic. Watch the interview below.
