Two WesternU colleges and two individuals from WesternU administration were honored Wednesday, May 1 by the Pomona Unified School District during the district's annual Community Service Awards presentation at the Village at Indian Hill. The colleges of Dental Medicine and Optometry were recognized as organizations contributing to the health and welfare of PUSD students and their families. They joined 18 other community organizations that were similarly honored by the school district. Elizabeth Rega, PhD, WesternU's Associate Vice Provost for Academic Development and Director of the Pomona Health Career Ladder, was one of 55 individuals recognized for their work with the school district, as was Andrew Pumerantz, DO, Assistant Provost for Strategic Initiatives and Executive Director of the Western Diabetes Institute.

Dr. Laudenbach spoke on temporimandibular joint disorder, Dr. Minsky on dental patients requiring hospital anesthesia, and Dr. V. Wedel on the role of dentistry in medicolegal investigations of death.
