Dr. Mohamed Meghil, another assistant professor in the Department of Periodontics, has been awarded the 2021 Educator Scholarship.

This scholarship aims to stimulate the development of periodontal educators by providing financial relief to those intending to pursue a career as a full-time teacher upon graduation from a periodontal training program in the U.S.

Both professors will receive their awards at the AAP Foundation ceremony during the 2021 AAP annual meeting held Nov. 4-7 in Miami Beach, Florida.
