Sarah Jones

Tony Award® winning performance artist, playwright, and poet
Through her performance at the ADEA Fall 2012 Meetings, Ms. Jones will invite attendees to examine and gain perspective on the lives, experiences, and beliefs of people from a wide range of backgrounds that are often inadequately addressed in health care delivery. In her critically acclaimed one-woman show, “Bridge & Tunnel,” she played 14 distinct characters of various ages, genders, and ethnicities, all of whom represented the unique and diverse voices of New York City. Her dynamic and thought-provoking performance attracted the likes of Academy Award winner Meryl Streep, who went on to produce the show off-Broadway. During her performance, Ms. Jones will address a broad spectrum of diversity issues relevant to the challenges of providing adequate health care to all individuals. This session will consist of a drama-based learning experience and a question and answer session.

Building Inclusive Communities: Opportunities for Academic Institutions

Daryl G. Smith, Ph.D.

Professor of Education and Psychology, Claremont Graduate University Author of several books and articles
Higher education and specifically health professions education continues to struggle to find effective ways to bring people from diverse backgrounds together in an environment that optimizes learning and success. Many higher education institutions have faced challenges trying to create environments in which large numbers of students, faculty, and staff can work inclusively with a high level of cultural flexibility. Based on her analysis of decades of diversity research, Dr. Smith will present the broad higher education context for both the promise and challenge of embracing a diversity inclusion strategy. Her presentation will be followed by reaction from dental school leaders and a small group discussion.

At the end of the presentation and discussion, participants will be able to:

  • Summarize how the thinking and research on diversity and inclusion has been reframed to become central to the mission of institutions of higher education

  • Describe examples of effective practices of diversity and inclusion in dental education programs

  • Identify ways diversity and inclusion can be enhanced and supported at their home institutions

CE Credits: 2.0

The difficulty in meeting increasing oral health care needs in a diverse population places expectations on dental schools to foster programs intended to improve understanding of complex societal issues. Students are also coming into dental programs with increased desires to reach out to a very broad spectrum of dental patients. This program will present ideas and encourage discussion on methods to address the new accreditation standards on diversity and humanism.
At the end of the presentation and discussion, participants will be able to:

        • Summarize methods to enhance humanistic and diversity-related curricular initiatives
