Legislative Week at the UConn School of Dentistry

Learning Objectives:

After hearing this podcast, the listener should:

  • Be able to follow the blue print laid out by the UConn ASDA Chapter, and organize their own school’s local legislative day
  • See the importance of lobbying for issues that are important to the future of the dental profession

Each year, dental students across the country gather in Washington D.C. to meet with their legislators during the National Dental Student Lobby Day regarding issues important to dental education and oral healthcare. Based on this national initiative, many have organized and implemented similar engagement activities with state/local legislators when dental students can speak with local politicians, and have their voices heard with regards to local issues facing their community or their school specifically. In this episode of THE NEXT DDS Podcast, we speak with Viviane Trinh, legislative liaison and D3 dental student from the University of Connecticut School of Dentistry. Viviane, along with several of her classmates, organized the second annual Legislative Day at the UConn. They invited local, as well as national politicians to speak at the event, and gave their classmates a first-hand view about political issues relevant to both students and the dental profession.
