WASHINGTON (April 1, 2014) – Alison Glascoe, D.D.S., M.S., associate professor in the Department of Periodontics/Preventive Services at Howard University College of Dentistry, was recently named the 2014 ADEA/Sunstar Americas, Inc./Harry W. Bruce, Jr. Legislative Fellow by the American Dental Education Association (ADEA).

The fellowship supports advocating for public policy that positively impacts dental education and oral health care. Dr. Glascoe received the award on March 17, at the 2014 ADEA Annual Session and Exhibition in San Antonio.

“I am honored to have been selected as the 2014 ADEA/Sunstar Americas, Inc./Harry W. Bruce, Jr. Legislative Fellow,” said Dr. Glascoe. “This fellowship will afford me the opportunity to learn how organized dentistry is involved in policymaking with our Congress. Furthermore, it is my hope that this experience will enhance my interactions with my dental students.”

Dr. Glascoe will receive a $15,000 stipend while working with the staff in the Advocacy and Governmental Relations portfolio of the ADEA’s Policy Center in Washington, D.C. During the fellowship, her responsibilities will include writing white papers on current issues in dental education, drafting policy and testimony, educating members of Congress and other policymakers on matters important to dental education, and actively interfacing and collaborating with groups and associations on issues of mutual concern in dental education and dental and craniofacial research.

Dr. Glascoe earned her D.D.S. from the University of Maryland at Baltimore, Baltimore College of Dental Surgery, and her M.S. in oral biology from the University of  Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. That same year, she received her periodontal certificate from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. She has been a practicing dentist for nearly 20 years and serves communities in Maryland by participating in community-focused events, such as health fairs and dental screenings for schools.
