The SOMA class of 2012 enjoyed a night of awards, dinner, and dancing at the second annual Innovator’s Gala, held on June 7 at the Sheraton Hotel in Phoenix, Ariz.

The gala, which was attended by 340 guests, took place the night before graduation and allowed the students to spend time with their peers, SOMA faculty, staff, and their Community Health Campuses (CHCs).

ATSU-ASDOH held its fifth annual Founders’ Ball on June 7 at The Phoenician in Scottsdale, Ariz.

All students from the class of 2012, along with one guest, were invited to attend the black-tie formal, reception, and dinner. The night included remarks by ASDOH’s dean, the presentation of the student-made DVD yearbook, and lots of dancing.

The ball, which was attended by 317 guests, is primarily funded by sponsorship, and this year consisted of five Gold-level sponsors ($2,500), eight table sponsors ($2,000), and 16 Friends of ASDOH ($100-$1,999).

The event originated in 2007 as a way to honor ASDOH’s Founding Member donors and celebrate the School’s first graduating class.

Jack Dillenberg, DDS, MPH

Jack Dillenberg, DDS, MPH, inaugural dean, ATSU-ASDOH is the recipient of the 2012 Arizona Medical Association (ArMA) Humanitarian Award. The ArMA Humanitarian Award recognizes programs and individuals who go above and beyond their given profession to help underserved communities receive medical care and other healthcare services that lead to the betterment of their lives.

Dr. Dillenberg’s colleague, Dr. Roy Holexa, had the following to share about Dr. Dillenberg’s work at ASDOH. “Dr. Jack Dillenberg, was inspired to found the dental school – Arizona’s first – in 2002, after three decades of service to vulnerable and underserved populations as a public health official with the World Bank working in Calcutta, India, the Jamaican Ministry of Health and the Arizona Department of Health Services. His vision of engendering passion in students to serve in areas of greatest need is now a reality. Dr. Dillenberg characterizes service in three ways – serving individual patients, impacting global health, and sharing what it means to serve others.”
