The 2017 ADEA Summer Program for Emerging Academic Leaders took place last month in Freeport, ME. This year’s program included 42 Fellows from 26 different dental schools, dental hygiene programs, and hospitals. The highly interactive program provided
early-career faculty with guidance, insight and skills needed to continue to build their academic careers. Fellows will now work in peer groups on a project, the results of which will be presented at the 2018 ADEA Annual Session & Expedition in Orlando next March.
Also participating in the program were ADEA Leadership Institute alumni who are advisors to the Fellows’ peer groups. Serving in this capacity are Hubert Chan, D.D.S., Western University of Health Sciences College of Dental Medicine; John Da Silva, D.M.D., M.P.H., Sc.M., Harvard School of Dental Medicine; Cheryl Fryer, D.D.S.,
M.S., M.A., Howard University College of Dentistry; Pamela Hughes, D.D.S., Oregon Health & Science University School of Dentistry; Ryan Quock, D.D.S., University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston; and Laura Romito, D.D.S., M.S., Indiana University School of Dentistry. During the program, with input
and advice from their advisors, the Fellows focused on training specific to leadership theory, communications and networking, career development and furthering their leadership roles in academic institutions.
The program is facilitated and managed by Tobias Rodriguez, Ph.D., Vice President at AAL, and Jeffery Stewart, D.D.S., M.S., Senior Vice President for Educational Leadership and Innovation at ADEA.
