Justin J. Seaman, '08, ASDA Vice President at NYU, said, "It was a wonderful opportunity to talk to fellow students from schools throughout the Eastern United States about what current dental students can do to move the profession in the right direction with regard to oral cancer."

In addition to Justin, NYUCD attendees included Deanna Barranco, '08, Andy Young, '09, and LeeAnn Clark, '09. The students' faculty mentor was Dr. Ross Kerr, Clinical Associate Professor or Oral & Maxillofacial Pathology, Radiology & Medicine, and Chair of the Oral Cancer Consortium.
