Limited tickets available for the Signature Recognition Event!

Join the AAP Foundation for a presidential evening that celebrates the future of periodontology along with the history of our country. This year’s AAP Foundation Signature Recognition Event will be held at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum. Located on a ten-acre park overlooking the sea, the museum portrays the life, leadership, and legacy of President Kennedy, conveys his enthusiasm for politics and public service, and illustrates the nature of the office of the President. Experience the Museum through three theaters, period settings, and 25 dramatic multimedia exhibits, and enter the recreated world of the Kennedy Presidency.

Then join us for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres with a dramatic view of the water and Boston at night. Enjoy several photo opportunities with presidential flair, and be surprised and delighted at the special touches that make the Signature Recognition Event so special year after year.

Your $125 ticket price includes:

  • Round-trip transportation to/from headquarters hotel
  • Award presentations
  • Opportunity to view exhibits in the JFK Museum
  • Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres

Mingle with friends of the AAP Foundation and meet the 2017 AAP Foundation award recipients and finalists, and help us congratulate those who will be shaping the future of our specialty. This year is the fifth anniversary of the Signature Recognition Event, and many are now regular attendees. Flavia Pirih, DDS, MS, PhD, says, “The AAP Foundation’s Signature Recognition Event is always on my ‘must-do’ list for the AAP Annual Meeting. The elegant locations, like minded attendees, and opportunity to meet and talk with tomorrow’s educational leaders make this one of my favorite events of the meeting.”
