The University of Iowa has presented Dr. Hayley Harvey, section chief and director of dental education at Broadlawns Medical Center and a College of Dentistry alum, with the 2020 Distinguished Alumni Service Award. The award is granted to UI graduates or former students for specific and meritorious service to their university, community, state or nation. At Broadlawns, Harvey has been a champion for increasing access to dental care and improving the oral health of underserved populations. She has helped Broadlawns establish a new $24 million facility with 22 operatories – six of which are for extramural rotations of UI dental students. Through her work at Broadlawns, she ensures that future generations of dentists will have a solid understanding of the dental and health disparities facing Iowa's low-income populations. She previously served as the public health dental director for the Iowa Department of Public Health, which then led her to a position at Broadlawns. Harvey is a wife and mother of two daughters. She is active in many community organizations and serves on the Mid-Iowa Health Foundation board of directors. In 2019, she was awarded the University of Iowa Dental Alumni Service Recognition of the Year honor. Read more about Harvey and her award
