Two from NYU Dentistry Selected as ADEA Leadership Fellows  

Professor Cheryl M. Westphal, assistant dean for allied health programs, and Dr. Elise S. Eisenberg, director of dental informatics, were among 19 dental educators in the United States selected as ADEA Leadership Institute Fellows for 2000-2001.

The Leadership Institute, now in its second year, is designed to develop the most promising faculty to become leaders at the highest levels of dental schools, allied health programs, advanced dental education, and higher education administration.

According to Dr. Richard W. Valachovic, ADEA executive director, “These people have accepted the challenge to think outside the box, to see the broader issues affecting higher education and society. They are the trailblazers who will lead our institutions in the future.” Heartiest congratulations to Cheryl and Elise from everyone at NYU Dentistry!
