BASCD Borrow Foundation Early Career Poster Award winners focused on the Wikipedia Collaboration of Dental Schools

Su Min Lai and Laura Tan took home theĀ  Borrow Foundation Early Career Poster Award in a poster competition at the annual conference of the British Association for the Study of Community Dentistry.

Su Min and Laura were the only undergraduate students to verbally present, and were the youngest presenters at the conference, making their achievement all the more remarkable. The students are from the University of Dundee and work with Cochrane Oral Health on the Wikipedia Collaboration of Dental Schools. The Collaboration's mission is to improve Wikipedia by making the articles more evidence-based. The poster set out the mission and ethos of the Collaboration, which to date has amended 287 Wikipedia articles in two languages.

Congratulations to Su Min and Laura, and to the hard-working student volunteers who give up their time to this project.
