Satish Alapati, Jim Bryniarski, Mike Santucci and Steve Weeks attended the American Dental Education Association meeting in Boston. The conference featured presentations on curriculum and technical innovations. The locals did ask if they could help them out and take some of their snow back to Chicago.
Barb and Mike Santucci visited Mickey and Minnie in March in Orlando. Both mice would like more visitors from the West Side Branch; they also said to bring your wallets.
Michelle Jennings and Richard Kohn vacationed in Maui in January. It was a very special trip because Michelle accepted Rick’s marriage proposal. Congratulations to a wonderful couple. It proves that perio and endo do have a lot of common ground.
Sara Gordon has been a member of the West Side Branch since joining UIC in 2006, where she was an associate professor of oral pathology and director of oral pathology graduate education. But this past fall, Sara moved to Seattle to take a position as the new associate dean for academic affairs (and a professor of oral medicine) at the University of Washington School of Dentistry.
Sara enjoyed her time in Chicago, and was sorry to say goodbye to friends. At the same time, she is loving the challenge of putting together a new curriculum, including an integrated medical-basic sciences curriculum, and a clinical clerkship. Read her bio. If anyone would like to reach Sara, her contact information is:
