If you were a regular viewer of The Ellen DeGeneres Show back in 2012, you may remember a particularly cringe-worthy episode titled You Posted That on Facebook? During the episode, Ms. DeGeneres caught members of her audience off guard when she broadcasted content from their Facebook accounts. Today, the ability of individuals to embarrass themselves through social media is hardly surprising, but such missteps can have serious consequences for students and for our institutions.

This issue of the Liaison Ledger explores an area of the dental curriculum that often receives cursory treatment: domestic violence.

Winter 2015: Women’s Health in the Dental Curriculum

Introduction | Permanent link
In 1999, ADEA published its first report on women’s health in the dental curriculum, and over the past 16 years, our Association has continued to draw attention to the fact that men and women have different health needs and respond differently to therapies. Today, as we enter an era of personalized medicine, few would deny these fundamental realities or the importance of preparing future health professionals to appreciate them.
