ADEA Call for Submissions; CDA Advocacy, HHM Award for Alumnus

The American Dental Education Association has announced a call for Programs, Posters and TechExpo presentations for next year’s ADEA Annual Session and Exhibition, scheduled for March 11-14, 2023, in Portland, OR. Please take a look at the entry details and consider a submission so we can have a strong showing from the Dugoni School at the event. The Annual Session will also celebrate the 100th anniversary of the organization. Submission details are available here.

Thank you to our CDA student leaders for stepping up to organize the recent CDA Contacts networking event last week and also to those who participated in the CDA Grassroots Advocacy Days. Our first-year student Kenza Schreiber was recently spotlighted in the CDA article “California dental students advocate for dentistry, patients during Grassroots Advocacy Days.”

We recently received some good news about an alumnus, Dr. Dan Hammer, who was selected as the HJF Hero of Military Medicine Navy Honoree. The HMM awards recognize outstanding contributions by senior leaders, medical professionals, and civilians who distinguished themselves through excellence and dedication to advancing military medicine and enhancing the lives and health of our nation’s wounded, ill, and injured service members, veterans, their families, and civilians. Read about Dr. Hammer’s path in the profession and service to others.
