CHICAGO, June 16, 2011 – The American Dental Association (ADA) recently selected Dr. Elizabeth Shapiro, 48, of Waterman, Ill., as the 2011-12 ADA Hillenbrand Fellow. The ADA awards the fellowship every other year to a dentist who has demonstrated strong leadership potential and the desire to transition from practicing dentistry to a nonclinical dental career in a health-related organization.
"Dr. Shapiro was selected among a number of highly qualified applicants but stood out for her dental practice experience and her time spent lobbying for access to care issues on behalf of the state of Illinois," said ADA President Dr. Raymond Gist. "I look forward to seeing her leadership skills further develop during her time at the ADA."
