Ameritas helps fund oral cancer research at UNC

Ameritas Group, a division of Ameritas Life Insurance, has made a $250,000 gift commitment to the University of Nebraska Foundation to establish a permanent endowment in support of the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) College of Dentistry.

The fund will provide annual support for research focused on preventing, detecting, and treating oral cancer.

"We're delighted to accept this generous support, which will significantly strengthen our developing oral cancer research and educational activities," said John Reinhardt, DDS, dean of the dental school, in a press release.

This endowment augments nearly 10 years of charitable support from Ameritas for the UNMC College of Dentistry. Past gifts from Ameritas have provided significant resources to help underwrite the college's annual Dental Day for children, rural externships for dental students across Nebraska, preclinic lab renovations, faculty and student research, and the dental hygiene department's sealant program.
