2016 Bursary Award Winners

Congratulations to our bursary award winners 2016.

There were four winning entries of ISDH bursaries this year. The awards were presented by Professor June Nunn, who commented on the quality of all submissions this year, making for a difficult choice for judges. She highlighted the quality of work submitted, from oral health promotion interventions in the West of Ireland to targeted services for people with Thalassaemia in South Asia. Many thanks to the Dental Health Foundation and DeCare for continuing to sponsor these awards.

The Student/Newly Qualified Dental Award, kindly sponsored by Dental Health Foundation was awarded to Dr Maeve Cooney.
