Member receives prestigious ‘Torchbearer’ award
The Indiana Commission for Women recently recognized Dr. Diane Buyer, an IDA member practicing in Nora, Ind., with its annual Torchbearer Award.
According to the commission’s website, “ICW created the concept of the Torchbearer Awards to honor the many Hoosier women who have overcome or removed barriers to equality or to whose achievements have contributed to making [Indiana] a better place in which to live, work, and raise a family.
“Recipients are women who have been pioneers in their industries, have inspirational stories that set the standard for other women, have faced tough choices, demonstrated character, and have made significant contributions to their communities and/or to the State of Indiana.”
Dr. Buyer, nominated for the award by Dr. Jill Burns, currently serves as the chairman of the IDA’s Drinks Destroy Teeth campaign, as well as chairman of the Indiana Oral Health Coalition. She has previously served on a number of IDA councils and committees, and as the editor of the IDA Journal.
