D3 Neha Das Messenger was awarded the Chancellor’s Award for Public Service in the Student/Resident/Postdoctoral Category.
"Receiving the Award for Public Service was an incredible honor and a very humbling experience -- hearing the speeches of the other recipients reminded me that my journey is just beginning, and there is so much more that we can do during the rest of our time here at UCSF and after we graduate" says the awardee.
The Chancellor’s Award for Public Service, established by Chancellor Philip R. Lee in 1970 annually honors members of the campus community who have performed outstanding service to the community at large, above and beyond that required by their University positions. The award grew out of the recognition that students, faculty, and staff, in addition to contributing through their daily activities, also make important contributions to the welfare of the community through public service activities.
Observes Dean John D.B. Featherstone: "Well deserved, and a big honor for Neha and for the School of Dentistry."
"Neha is a wonderful representative of the School of Dentistry" adds Susan Bauer Schultz, Associate Dean for Administration and Finance.
