The Dr. Connie L. Drisko-Women in Periodontics Leadership Awards, aimed at increasing the numbers of academic women periodontists in leadership positions, are established to inspire young women to follow in Dr. Drisko's footsteps.

Thanks to a generous gift from BioHorizons, the AAP Foundation will be offering the Nevins BioHorizons Teaching and Clinical Research Fellowship. This $20,000 award helps to address the retention of periodontal clinical researchers and educators early in their careers. To apply, visit our awards page.
This year, the AAP Foundation received a transformational $250,000 gift from Dr. Jo Rummelhart. Dr. Rummelhart is a longtime friend of the Foundation. Through her generosity, the AAP Foundation is proud to announce that in 2015, we will begin awarding the Dr. James T. Mellonig Regeneration Research Award. This $10,000 award is to honor the life, accomplishments and passions of Dr. James T. Mellonig.
The AAP Foundation is pleased to announce its new Corporate Ambassador Program, which gives companies an easy way to engage with the AAP Foundation, benefit its educational mission, and get more exposure to the periodontal community. Our first Corporate Ambassador is A-Titan Instruments. Welcome!
