The predental club or chapter that recruits the most predental members from now until Oct. 8 will earn a "virtual visit" from ASDA, which includes a personalized webinar with ASDA leaders, lunch provided by ASDA and raffle prizes for your members. Predental members must reference your club on the online application to earn credit.
ASDA welcomes two more predental chapters
. Congratulations to the following schools for being approved as ASDA's inaugural predental chapters:
- New York University
- University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill
These chapters will serve as pilots for ASDA's predental chapter initiative. Through this pilot program, ASDA will determine guidelines and best practices for future chapters. We look forward to opening up the predental chapter application process to all schools in 2017.
