“Being a member of the UIC Dental Alumni Association Board of Directors is both meaningful and enjoyable. Dental education has changed, and service on the Board gives us a role in helping assure the future of dentistry. And it’s a way to show our gratitude for the life dentistry has given us. I look at Board participation as both a thank you to the College and as a way to give back.”
