On March 24, 2023 members of the Austin, TX AADOM Chapter attended the Lucy Hobbs Event.
The Lucy Hobbs Project is named for the first American woman to earn a degree in dentistry in 1866. It honors Dr. Lucy Hobbs Taylor, who was born Lucy Beaman Hobbs on March 14, 1833 in Franklin County, New York and died October 3, 1910 in Lawrence, Kansas.
The 3rd Annual Lucy Hobbs Project was designed to empower women in dentistry and give back to the community. This year’s focus is intended to help dental professionals better understand how to nourish, move, and love your body. Developing and presenting innovative programs like Lucy Hobbs is a way to thank women in dentistry.
The charitable aspect of The Lucy Hobbs, UNBOUND NOW, is a global non-profit program supporting survivors and resourcing communities to fight human trafficking in the United States and 4 countries around the world. In 2022, Unbound Now team members worked diligently to see a future free of trafficking, focused on a variety of contexts, working directly with survivors of human trafficking and the most vulnerable. The team is made up of experts in social work, education, and law, as well as survivors of human trafficking, whose personal experiences bring invaluable direction to our organization.
