ADEA Leadership Institute Phase V Program
The ADEA Leadership
Institute Alumni Association (ADEA LIAA) is committed to ongoing leadership development
of alumni, and collaborated with ADEA to develop ADEA Leadership Institute Phase V.
This annual ADEA Leadership
Institute Phase V program provides a thought-provoking, interactive experience
that enables alumni to take their professional and personal abilities to the
The 2018 ADEA Leadership
Institute Phase V program will take place February 1–4, 2018, in Atlanta, GA. These four days will kick off a collective year-long journey of mindfulness, shared leadership experiences and opportunities to shape the future of dental education and dentistry.
February’s program promises to be exceptional. From walking the labyrinth at The Cathedral of St. Philip, to a guided tour of Oakland Cemetery, to dedicated time for self-reflection each day, participants will have numerous unique, real-time opportunities to practice mindfulness, the
overarching theme for 2018.
Rebecca Newberger Goldstein, Ph.D. will present Mindfulness: Paying Attention to What Matters. Based on her book, Plato
at the Googleplex—which participants will receive prior to the meeting—Dr. Goldstein will explore fundamental questions raised by philosophy, science and religion about our humanity and our core desire to make our lives matter.
In the evenings, the conversation will continue over an art and cocktail dinner at Cherokee Country Club, a Spanish wine and tapas tasting and various receptions.
The program is a purposefully intimate affair; attendance for the meeting caps at 45 attendees.
Beyond the annual program,
Phase V also creates multiple avenues for maintaining connectivity among
alumni, including a virtual book club and convening alumni at various ADEA
events. Phase V also supports leadership development by providing a scholarship to
the ADEA Summer Program
for Emerging Academic Leaders.
