Elizabeth Kay, from Cary, NC, graduated with degrees in chemistry, biology, and psychology. She volunteered with on-campus organizations such as Dance Marathon and TKV, as well as off-campus organizations such as Make-A-WIsh Foundation and Wake Smiles. She conducted research in both the psychology and chemistry departments, attended local, national, and international research conferences with both the Levine Scholars Program and other research advisors. She also created community research projects that measured local access to dental care and environmental sustainability in dentistry. “Brush Up”, her civic engagement project, was a dental education and care program for homeless women and children in Charlotte. During the summer of 2019, she studied abroad in Galway, Ireland, where she interned at a nonprofit radio station and created a show on health education. She also held an internship in Auckland, New Zealand, where she completed a 4-week environmental conservation volunteer program. Elizabeth has wanted to be a dentist since she was 10 years old, and is thrilled to be heading to the UNC Adams School of Dentistry in the fall to begin her doctorate in dental surgery (DDS). The support and guidance that she received from both the staff and her fellow scholars while in the Levine Scholars Program provided her with opportunities to help and learn from her community in ways that she had never experienced before. “I am dedicated to helping create a future with fewer health disparities, greater access to dental care, and sustainable outreach efforts that serve more than just emergent dental needs."
