Eastman International Alliance

UCL Eastman maintains a close relationship with its sister institutions in New York, Rome and Stockholm, all of which were originally established by American Philanthropist, George Eastman. Since 2019 colleagues from all four institutions have been co-hosting virtual Grand Rounds; highly-popular webinars on pertinent and challenging aspects of oral health care.
