Multicultural Luncheon Leads to Learning

On February 10, the Multicultural Planning committee hosted their second Multicultural Luncheon for students, faculty, and staff at the UMKC School of Dentistry.  The goal of the luncheon was to provide broader exposure of the rich heritages and cultures of those within our community so we can more effectively interact in school, patient care, and professional experiences.  Students representing multiple backgrounds including Asian, African American, Kuwaiti, Hispanic and Hawaiian, led various presentations and attendees enjoyed overviews of their cultural histories and dishes from their respective cultures.

Special thanks to the UMKC School of Dentistry Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee, Office of Student Programs, and Dean’s Office for their sponsorship of the event!
