AAP, Carestream name teaching award recipient

The American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) Foundation and Carestream Dental have presented the Dr. D. Walter Cohen Teaching Award to Yau-Hua Yu, DDS.

The award sponsored by Carestream helps beginning periodontal educators launch their career. It offers a one-time payment of $10,000 for candidates in their third year of a nonmilitary, accredited, periodontal postdoctoral training program in the U.S. The awardees must also intend to pursue a career in full-time periodontal teaching and research in the U.S.

Dr. Yu's research focuses on epidemiological studies and bioinformatics. She currently teaches at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine while also serving as a research staff member in the preventative medicine division at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston.

"The best educators are also the best researchers; in more ways than one, they shape the future of periodontology, whether through their students or their research findings," stated Ed Shellard, DMD, vice president of sales and marketing for Carestream Dental, in a press release. "Carestream Dental is honored to support this teaching award and the professionals who are working so hard to make advances in the field of oral health."
