Collaboration Between Student Groups Elevates Treatment at Coppin State Event

On Saturday, November 5, University of Maryland School of Dentistry residents and students gave free oral cancer screenings to attendees at the 12th Annual Pythias A. and Virginia I. Jones African American Community Forum on Memory Loss at Coppin State University in Baltimore, MD.

Representatives from both the Oral Maxillofacial Surgery Society (OMFS) and the Student National Dental Association (SNDA) collaborated to screen 54 attendees. The choice of event and venue gave volunteers a higher likelihood for screening at-risk patients.
