Thanks everyone for coming out to the 2012 District 1 Social Event at Mohegan Sun. We had a great turnout with over 45 people showing up to the event! We learned, we laughed, and some of us cried (all part of the casino experience!) and overall…we had a blast! We had three speakers at the event: Dr. Urillo and Jesse Dennehy from the Connecticut State Dental Association, Diane Peterson from Colgate, and Austin Holler from Medical Protective.
This event was created so that students from all four schools in District 1 (UConn, Boston University, Tufts, and Harvard) would have the opportunity to meet one another and take a much needed break from dental school! The presentations contained material that would be applicable to all dental students such as outside dental resources, the CSDA student dental online connection, and the different types of malpractice insurance plans. Our students had a great time dancing, socializing, and dining together at the Mohegan Sun Resort. Here are some comments from some of our UCONN ASDA members:
It was a great opportunity to network and socialize with students from other dental schools in a non-academic setting. After so much hard work and studying, the chance to relax and have some fun was much needed. Thanks ASDA for putting this trip together! – Griffin Udelson, 2014
By meeting other dental students I got to learn more about their school and curriculum and how it was similar/different to ours. – Elana Celliers, 2014
Staying in touch with our future colleagues from the Boston area is an invaluable part of the ASDA experience and I look forward to more District 1 events in the coming year. – Joseph Whitney, 2015
We look forward to having this event again in the future and we hope that everyone in UCONN ASDA will come again!
