State Lobby Day

State Lobby Day is an annual event that's held in Lansing at the State Capitol.  The day was hosted by the MDA with students from both the University of Michigan and the University of Detroit Mercy.  Throughout the day, students meet with legislators from all over the state in both the House of Representatives and the Senate.  Legislators listen to students speak about issues pertinent to dentistry and to dental students.  It is a great day to learn more about how important the legislative process is to protect dentistry.  We always aim for even more participation in the future!

UMich ASDA sent 8 students to Washington, D.C. for the ADA Dentist and Student Lobby Day to push for change and reform on behalf of the Tooth Party, ASDA, and the ADA. They met with the offices of US Senator Stabenow and Representatives Lawrence, Dingell, and Levin on Capitol Hill to discuss issues regarding health insurance reform and student loans.
