CDS Meetings & Events
Send it to Lindsey Yates. Next deadline: April 14 for the May/June issue of the CDS Review.
Our branch hosted Tripartite Night Nov. 12 at Petterino’s downtown. The evening offered a rare opportunity to see the executive directors of the Chicago Dental Society, Illinois State Dental Society and American Dental Association speak together on a variety of topics related to organized dentistry. The meeting was very informative and well attended.
As vice chair of the University of Illinois at Chicago Alumni Advisory Board, Gene Romo was invited to the Alumni Education Summit in Beijing and Shanghai, China. Gene visited the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City and also rode the bullet train to Shanghai.
Darren Pakravan helped plan and host the 19th Annual Chicago Slaughterhouse Scooter Rally over Labor Day weekend. More than 80 riders from around the country came to Chicago for a weekend of riding, events, karaoke, bands, DJs, BBQ and fun!
Education: Alice Boghosian earned her dental degree from the Loyola University School of Dentistry in 1985.
Family and Practice: Dr. Boghosian has a daughter named Lydia Gerlach, who lives and works in Seoul, South Korea. Alice practices in Niles with fellow branch member, John Hagopian. (Pictured: Rose Boghosian, Lydia Gerlach and Alice Boghosian.)
Outside of dentistry, I enjoy: music performance (flute), yoga, jogging, cooking and gardening. I so much enjoy growing produce to transform into tasty creations!
My goal for the coming year: I have participated in organized dentistry since I graduated in 1985. But in the past two years, I’ve managed to dive in head first. In addition to being the North Side Branch president, I serve on the American Dental Association’s Council on Communications and the Illinois State Dental Society’s Board of Trustees. Some might call this crazy, but what I have learned so far is that this simultaneous tripartite involvement has allowed me to gain special insight into how each arm fits together and how important a role each plays. As branch president, I want to bring this insight and knowledge to our members and communicate its importance.
