At the ACOMS 37th Annual Scientific Conference and Exhibition in San Juan, Puerto Rico, the American College of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (ACOMS) presented the Humanitarian Award to Dr. Julio Acero, President of the International Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (IAOMS).
“I am deeply overwhelmed by the award I received on behalf of all those involved in educational projects on OMFS as well as in humanitarian aid worldwide” said Dr. Acero. “My gratitude to the ACOMS for this recognition which is greatly appreciated.”
The ACOMS Humanitarian Award was established in 1990 to recognize outstanding philanthropic and humanitarian contributions provided by oral and maxillofacial surgeons to humanity and to celebrate the public-spiritedness of those who use their skills to give back to society.
Dr. Acero was recognized for his long career and educational path of delivering oral and maxillofacial surgery care and education to new generations in third world countries.
