Touro College of Dental Medicine Ends Inaugural Year
The Touro College of Dental Medicine was accredited a year ago and its inaugural class is moving up. One member of the class, Jessica Li, has become an ambassador of sorts to the dental college's students in the community. A Westchester native, she has assisted incoming students with finding housing, as well as giving them the down-low on where to eat and drink around campus. The daughter of a dentist, Li originally had no interest in following in her father’s footsteps. She attended Cornell as a communications major, but slowly found herself working on more and more projects involving dentistry. This eventually led her back to Westchester to join the inaugural class at Touro College of Dental Medicine, located at New York Medical College in Valhalla.
