(Involvement, Leadership, Policy) Permanent link   All Posts

The 2011 ASDA/ADEA National Dental Student Lobby Day will take place March 28-29, 2011. Training will be held on Monday, March 28, at the Capital Hilton, and Capitol Hill visits will take place on Tuesday, March 29.

This experience provides dental students with the opportunity to make a difference in the dental community and lobby for issues important to dental students and professionals. Attendees will be educated about dental issues and legislation and then meet with their members of Congress to advocate for important issues. Approximately two weeks prior to the meeting, attendees will receive detailed information about the issues; further discussion, including a question-and-answer session, will take place during the meeting.

National Dental Student Lobby Day is organized by the American Student Dental Association (ASDA) and the American Dental Education Association (ADEA). For more information and to register, visit www.asdanet.org/lobbyday.aspxor contact Meghan Keelean at Meghan@asdanet.org. Please submit only one registration form per student chapter and register by Wednesday, February 23, 2011. The deadline to make hotel reservations at the Capitol Hilton Hotel and get the discounted group rate is Friday, February 25, 2011.
