Dr. Jaclyn Rivera Climbs Mount Kilimanjaro

A big round of applause to AAE member and Public and Professional Relations committee member Dr. Jaclyn Rivera for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro! As a dedicated member she even planted the AAE flag at the top — talk about elevating endodontists!

“Wow, was that incredibly hard,” she said of the feat. “Summit day started at 12:30 a.m. and we hiked for six hours to summit and then another six down to camp for the night. If that’s not as difficult as finding a calcified MB2 with no microscope - I don’t know what is. Plus, these are just gorgeous views. Worth every minute of misery.”

Let’s give Dr. Rivera some sky-high congratulations for helping our specialty reach new heights! See the slideshow below for some images from her trip!
