Johnson & Johnson joins the American Dental Hygienists’ Association (ADHA) in honoring dental hygienists who exemplify excellence in dental hygiene. The award, sponsored by a grant from Johnson & Johnson, will recognize individual dental hygienists who have made “outstanding accomplishments that have a significant impact on the practice and future of the dental hygiene profession.” A maximum of seven dental hygienists will be selected for these prestigious awards. Each will receive a cash award of $2,500 and be provided with a two-night, all expense-paid trip to the 2013 ADHA CLL at the 90th Annual Session in Boston, MA. Winners will be honored at a special annual session awards banquet. Essay formats will be utilized—one to be completed by the nominee, and one to be completed by the nominator. The purpose of the essays will be to demonstrate evidence of advancing the professional roles of the dental hygienist. The professional roles are clinician, educator, advocate, administrator/man- ager, and researcher, with public health as an integral component of all these roles. This is an opportunity to identify col- leagues who have made significant contributions to the growth and development of the profession. Take this opportunity to nominate deserving dental hygienists. If you wish to nominate more than one per-
son, please submit each name on a separate sheet. Send nominations to: American Dental Hygienists’ Association Member Services 444 N. Michigan, Suite 3400 Chicago, IL 60611
Submissions must be received no later than November 9, 2012. To ensure safe and on-time delivery, express delivery services are recommended.
