Student Leader Learning Fast

As the LSUSD student representative to the American Dental Education Association (ADEA), fourth-year dental student Elise Morgan Trahant attended the Joint Council Administration Board Meeting of ADEA in Washington, D.C. The meeting included intense training in making contacts through “speed networking” with deans and faculty from dental schools around the country.

Other topics discussed were how dental education will be affected by the 20 new dental schools scheduled to open by the year 2020, how to engage more students and alumni into becoming a dental faculty member and how to encourage diversity among dental schools.
