Illinois Lt. Governor Pat Quinn will receive the Chicago Dental Society’s 2008 George H. Cushing Award at opening session of the society's Midwinter Meeting on Thursday, February 21.Lt. Governor Quinn promoted passage of Illinois House Bill 752, legislation requiring all Illinois children in kindergarten, second and sixth grades to have a dental examination. He supported the creation of Healthy Smiles Week, which brought oral health care to children in rural and inner-city communities. He also supported Tour de Smile, a national bike relay that came through Illinois to promote oral health care for children.
“His championship of House Bill 752 and other oral health care initiatives statewide has been crucial to the health and well-being of Illinois children,” says Alice Boghosian, DDS. “Because Lt. Governor Quinn has committed to making dental health as one of his top priorities, future generations of the children of Illinois will benefit.”The George H. Cushing Award is presented annually to individuals or groups who raise public awareness about oral health issues. Past recipients include baseball legend Joe Garagiola, national chairman of Oral Health America’s National Spit Tobacco Education Program; the Shriver family, founders of the Special Olympics Special Smiles program; former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. David Satcher; Dr. Linda Niessen and Ms. Sara Ivey for their television program “Dental Health Minute;" Dr. Burton Edelstein, founder of the Children's Dental Health Project; Dr. Dushanka Kleinman, chief dental officer of the U.S. Public Health Service; and the Oral Cancer Foundation.Established in the 1980s, this award commemorates George H. Cushing, DDS, MD, a prominent Chicago dentist and a strong advocate of dental health education.
