From the Editor: Introducing Interface

Click here for Interface
By Elyse Bloom

Welcome to the inaugural issue of Interface, a new joint publication of the NYU Colleges of Dentistry and Nursing that is designed to provide updates on the dentistry/nursing partnership at NYU and what it means to the health of our nation. With Interface, we are able to provide more news about the partnership than is possible in either the NYU College of Dentistry magazine, Global Health Nexus, or the NYU Nursing Magazine, both of which will continue to be published twice a year.

The decision in 2005 to create a dentistry/nursing alliance at NYU by moving the nursing programs into the College of Dentistry was motivated by the conviction - which has grown stronger over time - that in order to help alleviate the enormous healthcare challenges facing our nation, health sciences education programs would have to move toward greater collaboration in education, research, and patient care, including reaching out to underserved patients in alternative settings and with alternative strategies.

Our first issue of Interface offers a birdís-eye view of the programs developed by the NYU dentistry/nursing partnership to date in pursuit of these goals. We hope that you will enjoy learning more about this exciting venture and that you will contact us at to let us know what you think about the direction in which we are moving and what kinds of stories you would like us to feature in future issues.
