November 10, 2011 MOVING RESEARCH INTO ACTION

WHAT'S NEW?

 
AADR 4th Fall Focused Symposium panel discussion.

AADR held its 4th Fall Focused Symposium on November 3-4, 2011, at the Renaissance Washington, DC hotel. This year, the theme of the symposium was “Oral Health Disparities Research and the Future Face of America.”

AADR created the Fall Focused Symposium under the objective to provide networking opportunities and exchange of ideas, and to offer small regional symposia focused on cutting-edge technology and techniques. At this two-day scientific program, attendees had the opportunity to attend sessions, view 33 scientific posters, collaborate with colleagues and attend a panel discussion.

The symposium brought together key opinion leaders, scientists from the NIH, NIDCR and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, along with NIH-funded investigators and academicians. Newly appointed NIDCR Director Martha Somerman presented a session titled “Research to Address Oral Health Disparities: an NIDCR Priority.”

The symposium was recorded and will be available for download at the IADR/AADR Knowledge Community at http://www.aadronline.org/knowledgecommunity
