Two GSDM Students Join ADEA Representatives

ADEA-200Amal (Emma) Lattouf and Andrew Soule-Hinds, both DMD 15, were selected as the American Dental Education Association (ADEA) Council of Students, Residents and Fellows (CoSRF) class representatives for the Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine (GSDM).

GSDM’s Office of Student Affairs and current GSDM ADEA CoSRF representatives served as the selection committee.

As GSDM student representatives on the Council, Lattouf and Soule-Hinds will serve for two years, working with current GSDM ADEA CoSRF representatives to promote student engagement and increase ADEA student membership at GSDM. They will also travel to both the 2013 and 2014 ADEA Annual Sessions. Lattouf and Soule-Hinds will join current GSDM CoSRF representatives Arsalan Elahi and Kelsey Hill, both DMD 14, at this year’s ADEA Annual Session in Seattle this March.

“This year we received a record number of applicants for the ADEA CoSRF representatives and we are excited that Emma and Andrew will join DMD 14’s Kelsey and Arsalan in Seattle,” said Dr. Joseph Calabrese, Assistant Dean of Students. “We hope that creating this overlapping cycle of students rotating for two years will maximize the experience for those that participate and for those that benefit back at school from the representatives’ hard work.”

The ADEA CoSRF’s mission is to serve as the national voice and advocates for all students, residents, and fellows in the dental education community by addressing the issues that shape the present and future of dental education. Additionally, ADEA CoSRF offers a chance for student leaders to develop their skills to become future leaders in dental education.
