The Foundation for Dental Laboratory Technology (The Foundation) announces the winners of the first-ever 2016 NADL University Grant:
Anthony Calonico, CDT, TE – Bolingbrook, IL
Jennifer Krueger, CDT – La Crosse, WI
Heraeus Kulzer, along with the Foundation for Dental Laboratory Technology, created this grant in order to support the Foundation’s purpose by making higher-level education and dental laboratory management more accessible. Thanks to the generosity of Heraeus Kulzer, both individuals had their tuition fee to attend NADL University (NADL U) this September in Tempe, Arizona covered as part of this grant. The cost to attend NADL U would typically be $1,800.
“The significance of this grant is indescribable, as it assists in closing a gap that has been identified as one of the top 5 issues currently impacting the profession – the need for qualified managers in the dental laboratory industry. We thank Heraeus Kulzer for their support,” said Foundation Chair, Jeff Stronk.
