State Lobby Day
This past spring, 25 LSU dental students made their way to the Louisiana State Capitol for our state Lobby Day. The day serves as a gateway to allow students the opportunity to speak with representatives on a state level. During this visit to meet with Senators Tory Carter and Wesley Bishop, LSU School of Dentistry was commended for the quality of its programs by CODA from its site visit.
National Dental Student Lobby Day
Every year, ASDA organizes National Dental Student Lobby Day! By attending, dental students are able to learn how to lobby and develop skills with each other in order to have their voices heard on Capitol Hill by United States representatives. LSU ASDA averages involvement from about 5 students yearly, and the 2-day trip proves to be valuable learning experience about current issues and how to best handle them with our careers in mind.
