AWFA's Fall Reception: Dean of Dental Medicine
Dr. Jeffcoat

The annual Fall Reception of the Association for Women Faculty and Administrators (AWFA)--with support from The Penn Women's Center and the Trustees' Council of Penn--welcomes Dr. Marjorie Jeffcoat, Dean of the School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Jeffcoat will present a talk, Oral Health for Women: It's More Important Than You Think!, on Thursday, September 18, from 4-6 p.m., in the Benjamin Franklin Room, 2nd floor Houston Hall.

Dean Jeffcoat's research has focused on understanding the connection between oral health and overall health, particularly in women. A recently published article examines the link between periodontal disease in pregnant women and premature births. 

Prior to coming to Penn, Dr. Jeffcoat taught periodontology at Harvard University for 10 years, and was assistant dean of research, and chairman and professor in the department of periodontics at the University of Alabama School of Dentistry. 

An award-winning researcher, Dean Jeffcoat is editor in chief of the Journal of the American Dental Association.

Join us to meet new colleagues and reconnect with old ones. A special welcome is extended to new faculty and administrators who have joined the University over the past year.
