Maryland ASDA District 3 Conference in the Poconos!

Roughly 20 Maryland ASDA members got a taste of the conference life in January 2019 by being sent to the Kalahari Resort and Indoor Waterpark in the Poconos to learn more about leadership and life outside of dental school. They also got to reflect on ASDA life at their school and share what we have done with other ASDA members from Howard, UPenn, UPitt, and Temple. We also got to partake in the coveted Zirconia Crown awards in which place several Maryland ASDA positions were able to take home a prize for their achievements. Kudos to them! Here are some photos taken at the conference below. Make sure to stay on top of signing up so you may get an invaluable experience through one of these conferences. #ASDAFever

Wellness Month Events!

September is ASDA Wellness Month! We want our members to fuel their bodies mentally, physically, and socially. We have oodles of events scattered throughout September to dedicate towards bringing awareness to these attributes. On Sept. 5th we had a succulent making event to get everyone to stop by and spend time with others making succulents to bring home to place in their homes. We have a soap making event on September 14th in Lab A on the 5th floor from noon-1pm. Check our Calendar of Events page for details on our Picnic and Popsicles in the Park, Meal Prepping, Ergonomics, and our many opportunities for group fitness during this month for Wellness!

Also make sure to sign up for our Step it Up Challenge details in the poster below:
