Philadelphia – Dr. Beverley Crawford, Director of Diversity Affairs at Penn Dental Medicine, is the recipient of the 2012 National Dental Association Foundation (NDAF)/Colgate-Palmolive Faculty Recognition Award in the category of Administration/Service. The Recognition Awards, given in three categories, were presented July 20 as part of the National Dental Association’s Multicultural Oral Health Summit in Boca Raton, Fla.
