Philadelphia-Israel Chamber of Commerce and PICC Foundation are proud to honor Temple University Maurice H. Kornberg School of Dentistry and the Bridge to Peace Initiative with the PICC 2020 Life Sciences, Healthcare and Bio Award for advancing dental and oral care to all, especially the disabled. In lieu of hosting our Annual Gala and presenting the award in person, we will host live Zoom events featuring this inspiring social impact collaboration on September 30, and October 21 (11:30AM-1PM).

On September 30, Al-Quds University, Hadassah Hebrew University, Temple University, and other academic institutes, and dental and oral care industry leaders will host a discussion on Innovation Empowering Dental and Oral Care During COVID-19. The program will explore best practices and advanced technologies to enable safe access to oral healthcare by all, especially for high risk individuals (disabled, elderly, and those who live in poverty).

The October 21 program will bring together healthcare experts to discuss challenges of providing Rapid COVID-19 Testing Technologies for Oral and Dental Care Providers. We will feature the latest Israeli and local solutions in development. In addition, the PICC will present its 2020 Life Sciences, Healthcare and Bio Award to Temple University Maurice H. Kornberg School of Dentistry and the Bridge to Peace Initiative.

Both programs are hosted with the support of Israel Economic Mission in NYC, Israel Export Institute, Temple University, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and Al-Quds University. We may host additional events on innovative technologies for the oral and dental industry per demand.
