2016 KDS graduate Catherine Robinson Hill, along with three other University of Alabama students from rural areas of the state, has been selected for the inaugural class of the University of Alabama’s College of Community Health Sciences Rural Dental Scholars Program.
The Rural Dental Scholars Program is a partnership between CCHS Rural Programs and the UAB School of Dentistry to recruit students who are interested in practicing dentistry in a rural area of Alabama. The postgraduate program includes a year of study and a master’s degree in rural community health at CCHS and early admission to the UAB School of Dentistry. Students must have either lived in rural Alabama for eight years or have graduated from a rural Alabama high school to be eligible for the program.
The 2023 class of Rural Dental Scholars includes Catherine, Landon McCardle of Dothan, Joshua Perry of Guntersville, and Aubrey Stewart of Dothan.
