The International College of Dentists (ICD) has awarded its 2008 Platinum Pencil Journalism Award to Global Health Nexus. The award recognizes the excellence of our spring 2007 issue, "Dentistry's Role in Primary Health Care," and our fall 2007 issue, "Mentoring: Getting the Inside Scoop." Dean Bertolami called the award "another example of Global Health Nexus's impact both nationally and internationally and of NYUCD/NYUCN's commitment to effective communication across our campus and around the world." He also congratulated GHN editor, Elyse Bloom, on her exceptional success in directing this publication and on the influence it has exerted in the dental community. GHN was founded in 1999 by former Dean Michael C. Alfano.
