Congratulations to Kenny Tran, Midwestern-AZ '24 for earning this award in the 2021-22 program! Kenny shared:
“As providers, we can provide the care so desperately needed, but as advocates, we will secure the resources to enhance our communities permanently. We are soon going to join the ranks of dentistry, why should we not be part of the conversation and decisions that affect us? Advocacy is the only way we will create the changes that will sustain our profession for generations."
