UBC alumna / faculty member part of team to win CDA Oral Health Promotion Award

The Canadian Dental Association has presented the Oral Health Promotion Award to the B.C. Oral Cancer Prevention Program (BCOCPP) and to one of its founding pioneers, Michele Williams, UBC alumna (DMD 1988) and clinical professor at UBC Faculty of Dentistry.

Williams is part of a team of scientists and clinicians that has worked tirelessly to develop a program that has heightened the awareness of oral cancer, and the need for early oral cancer detection.

Williams is an oral medicine leader at the BCOCPP and the department of oral oncology at the B. C. Cancer Agency/Cancer Research Centre.
