In 2015, two students from the UNC Adams School of Dentistry and a third from NC State were shot and killed in an attack that the family and the Durham District Attorney say was racially motivated.

For the sixth annual day of service to honor their legacy, this year’s DEAH Day provided a free dental clinic for the community.
