NYUCD Participates in International Dental Hygiene Week
Two members of the Dental Hygiene Program, Ms. Janet Tuthill (second from right), an Instructor in Dental Hygiene, and Ms. Su-Yan Barrow (far right), a Clinical Assistant Professor of Dental Hygiene, represented NYUCD last April at "International Week," an event hosted by the dental hygiene school, InHolland, at ACTA (the University of Amsterdam). The event drew dental hygiene faculty from 10 countries who presented seminars and workshops throughout the week. Ms. Tuthill presented a seminar on "Dental Hygiene Education and Practice in the U.S." and a workshop on "Building Critical Thinking." Professor Barrow presented a seminar on "Dental Health Programs in Barbados," which included the results of the 2004 World Health Organization's oral health survey, and a workshop on "Human Motivation and Cultural Considerations." Also shown in the photo are Ms. Jenny Miller (far left), of the University of Adelide in Australia, and Ms. Marilyn Cortell (second from left), of New York City Technical College.
