Drs. Joan Phelan and Miriam Robbins, Professor and Chair, and Associate Professor and Associate Chair, respectively, of the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology, Radiology & Medicine, arranged recently for two oral medicine residents from Louisiana State University School of Dentistry to come to NYUCD
for three weeks of intensive clinical training that they couldn't get at home because of the tremendous damage done by Hurricane Katrina to LSU's New Orleans campus. Dr. George Sonbol and Dr. Jeevan Yenuganti, foreground, are shown with several of the faculty they trained with. Said Dean Alfano, "NYUCD offered a wide array of services and equipment to LSU after Katrina, and though most could not be accepted, it is gratifying that we had the opportunity to assist these two fine postgraduate students in some small way."
