Support RADA

A new initiative by RADA to spread information and raise funds for our projects involved
a fundraising piano concert. On April 27th, 2011, students from YM Piano Studios performed at
Young Musicians for a Smoke Free Planet at Jazz at Lincoln Irene Diamond Center. Over
$1,000 was collected in proceeds to fund RADA’s initiatives locally and abroad, which include
research in the dental field, assisting dental professionals with their career goals, and organizing
medical conferences.

RADA also organized and hosted the RADA-Medicus Gala at the Consulate General for Poland,
on May 10th, 2011; the third event of its kind that educates dental and medical professionals about
topics relating to their occupations. The Polish Consulate in Manhattan was filled with one hundred
dentists and physicians who listened to a lecture by Dr. Gwen Brown, DDS, watched the Hermitage
Piano Trio play classical pieces, and were treated to traditional Polish food.
The gala focused on teaching the dentists and physicians in attendance about the signs of
oral cancer/HPV and how to detect it. Director of RADA’s Oral Cancer/Tobacco Cessation Project,
Dr. Brown, gave a thorough speech about these issues called “Current Trends in Epidemiology and
Diagnosis of Oral Cancer and Physician-Dentist Referral Network Development.” We realized how
important such an event is when Dr. Brown asked the attendees how many of them tested for the
disease, and a very small amount of people raised their hands.
The proceeds for the tax deductable event tickets all went towards the Oral Cancer/Smoking
Cessation Project and “Kids 4 Kids” Anti-Smoking Drawing Contest. Therefore, the success and
viability of the association is attributed to benevolent donors of these humanitarian causes. Supporters
of the organization ensure sustained vitality and prosperity, while empowering American
