Come early to ADA 2014—America's Dental Meeting for day-long course on volunteering

June 25, 2014

Dental professionals who are interested in learning more about volunteering internationally or domestically can attend the 2014 ADA Volunteer Symposium: The World Outside your Office.

This daylong pre-session symposium is set for Oct. 8 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio during ADA 2014—America's Dental Meeting.

Presenters Dr. Christopher Holmgren, Dr. Kevin Hardwick and Bella Monse will use interactive learning sessions to demonstrate how to recognize diverse and specific global oral health concerns, understand the importance of appropriate and sustainable volunteer programs and understand how successful programs use science-based public health principles. The 2014 ADA Humanitarian Award recipient, Dr. Raymond Damazo, will be a guest speaker at the program.

Cost for the course is $145 and includes breakfast and lunch. The symposium is underwritten by a grant from the Academy of Dentistry International and presented by the ADA Division of Global Affairs through the ADA International Development Subcommittee (course 4102).
