Still University Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health, interact during a workshop at ASDA's National Leadership Conference, which drew 364 predoctoral and 22 predental students. The event was held to provide leadership training for ASDA members with sessions on advocacy, career planning, business leadership and more. ASDA garnered kudos from participants for the first-ever conference. Christian Piers, University of Colorado class of 2016, wrote: "I just gave a presentation on what I learned to our local ASDA chapter. The subjects covered [at the event] were so applicable I ended up getting mobbed by first years asking how to learn more and how to get more involved. If your intention was to have the conference ignite a buzz back in the local chapters, you've succeeded."
