Congratulations to Dr. Jeanette Sabir-Holloway, who received the Lucy Hobbs Project Mentor award for her Increasing Diversity in Dentistry Pipeline (IDID) program. The Lucy Hobbs Project honors and supports women in dentistry and is named after the first female dentist in the U.S. Launched in 2009, IDID mentors underrepresented college students and supports disadvantaged students in their quest to become dentists. Dr. Sabir-Holloway practices in Indianapolis and is also the director of outreach, recruitment and admissions at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. Thanks to her efforts, Tufts University School of Dental Medicine is now one of the most diverse dental programs in the country.
