Thursday, March 25, 2010
4:00pm - 6:05pm
New Jersey Dental School
110 Bergen Street
Newark, NJ 07107
To reach the meeting room, you must enter the Dental School through the original Bergen Street entrance on the circle. (You will not be able to reach the meeting room from the new Oral Health Pavilion on 12th Avenue.)
Parking: Please drive directly to the fenced in parking lot directly across 12th Avenue from the Dental School (50 12th Avenue). If you are traveling south on Bergen Street, you need to turn left at the light for 12th Avenue and the parking lot will be immediately on your left. You must have a UMDNJ parking tag for that lot. There will be someone at the entrance to this parking lot until 4:15 to give you a UMDNJ one-day parking tag, and direct you to the meeting room. (If you come late and do not have a tag, you may also pay for parking on the street or in the parking deck, but reimbursement will not be possible.)
To get to the Bergen Street entrance from 12th Avenue, walk up the path between the parking structure and the Oral Health Pavilion towards the circle (in other words in the direction towards University Hospital). The entrance will be on your left, immediately after you've walked up that small hill.
