ASDA at Virginia Commonwealth University introduces its students to lifelong involvement in organized dentistry. Students at varying education levels such as predental students, current dental students, and alumni can all work together in a combined effort to positively contribute to the dental profession. Members are engaged and involved through fundraisers, lunch and learns, social events, state lobbying events, or even writing for the chapter or district newsletter. VCU has several committees that give each student a chance to find their leadership role – either predental, health and wellness, activities, community services, legislative, or ethics. These events allow students from different backgrounds to engage with one another on a personal level, while also learning about topics such as student debt, dental licensure, and practice management after school. ASDA at VCU is excited to be a part of the district four ASDA, and plans to continue the initiative to educate our members about organized dentistry.
