Saving ADA members $4.4 million in loan consolidations. Patient education reaching over 21 million people on social media. And celebrating 150 years of the Code of Ethics.
The ADA can celebrate a multitude of highlights in 2016.
For the second year, the Association released a video and infographic, to visually articulate the impact, reach and value of ADA membership.
