Prichard Award

The 2019 John F. Prichard Graduate Research Competition was an outstanding success once again. Fourteen abstracts were submitted from the University of Colorado, UT Health Science Center at Houston, United States Air Force Periodontics, UT Health Science Center at San Antonio, and the University of Oklahoma.

Eleven Judges, one for each residency program as well as three clinical judges, participated in the scoring of the abstracts. Based on this review, six abstracts were selected for oral presentation.

On January 26, 2019, eleven judges heard oral presentations of the selected abstracts. The winner of the Prichard Competition in the Clinical Sciences Research Category was Dr. Jeff Penner from the UT Health Science Center at San Antonio. The winner of the Prichard Competition in the Basic Sciences Research Category was Dr. Seung (Steve) Y. Lee with the United States Air Force Periodontics.

Congratulations to Dr. Penner and Dr. Lee as well as to the other four presenters.

The awards were presented on January 26th during the SWSP Business Meeting. Procter & Gamble was recognized for their support of the competition. The 2019 competition once again demonstrated the exceptional research being conducted within the residency program within the Society. The written abstracts and oral presentations were outstanding. Many thanks to the Judges for their time and willingness to participate in this year’s competition.

The purpose of the Prichard Award is to establish, maintain, and encourage participation in scientific presentations to fulfill the mission and goals of the Society and honor the memory of Dr. John F. Prichard. For anyone interested in participating, learn more about the guidelines for participation at http://www.swsp.org/prichard-award-guidelines.
