Pack Your Floss for MLA’13

This was also posted on MEDLIB-L but I thought it was important to also post here.

Before you head off to Boston, drop an extra pack of dental floss in your bag.  In honor of the Dental Section’s 80th Anniversary (impressive) they will be collecting dental floss for needy populations in Guatemala and Mexico.  Dental students from Boston University go on mssions to these areas to provide treatement and according to organizers their is a scarcity of floss (compared to other oral hygiene products) there.  There will be a donation box at the conference registration desk.

Floss is so small you can probably pack a couple of packs in your carry on.  Don’t forget!!!!

  1. Hi, Michelle, This is Cheryl Rowan with the NN/LM SCR in Houston. I have never met you personally, but know that you know lots of fellow NN/LMers–in fact, you are headed to OU-Tulsa to do the seminar tomorrow and Emily Hurst will be there!
    I wanted to see if you knew how I could find out more about this post. I do a lot of things in Guatemala and would be interested in hearing about where this group is working and possibly meet some of them at MLA. Do you have a contact email? Thanks! I hope to meet you at MLA this year. :-) ~Cheryl
