Effectively Advocating for Dental Education at the State Level

With headlines from federal politics dominating the news, it can be easy to overlook the importance of advocacy at the state level. For dental educators and dental students, however, state-level advocacy is just as and, sometimes, more important than petitioning the federal government.

During this webinar, Phil Mauller, ADEA Director of State Relations and Advocacy, will discuss the important issues impacting dental education at the state level, and how your role as a dental educator or student puts you in a position to be a strong voice for dental education. Covering more than just the legislative process, this webinar will detail ways to get involved, strategies you can adopt, and provide ADEA resources designed to help advocates like you.

Learning Objectives

  • Discover the importance of state advocacy.
  • Identify how state legislatures operate, ways to get involved, and strategies for being an effective state-level advocate.
  • Evaluate how issues critical to state governments impact dental education.
