Once again, Dr. Jack returns to Kirksville, Missouri, this time to attend the Board of Trustees meeting to discuss the revised Missouri Dental School Project.
The new plan calls for establishing a separate dental school rather than a branch campus of ASDOH. The board voted in favor of the new school and new building on campus and requested more information about the proposed St. Louis dental clinic to be built. Recruitment for a dean for the MO campus will begin shortly.
At the same meeting, Dr. Craig Phelps presented the planning progress made for the San Diego campus of ATSU. He also discussed the establishment of a San Diego special needs dental care clinic that would be ASDOH’s initial project beginning in July, 2011.
