Houston Fill, the electronic magazine of the American Student Dental Association chapter at The University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston, has won the 2013 Lawrence H. Meskin Journalism Award, presented annually by the American Association of Dental Editors. 

“Houston Fill” co-editors Laura Nelson and Macey Cartrite, both second-year dental students, accepted the award at the AADE annual conference in New Orleans Oct. 30.

Nelson is a Dallas native who attended Highland Park High School before earning a bachelor's degree in human development and family sciences from The University of Texas at Austin.

Cartrite graduated from Sunray High School in the Texas Panhandle town of Sunray. She studied biochemistry at Texas Tech University before enrolling at UTSD.

The Meskin Award is named after the late editor of the Journal of the American Dental Association and recognizes excellence in student dental publications.
