On January 27, 2014, the Boston University chapter of the Student National Dental Association (SNDA) held their first meeting of the spring semester in G-301. During the meeting, students from each year collaborated and planned for upcoming events.
The first SDNA event of the semester, Impressions Day, will be held on March 1. Impressions is a national event organized and sponsored by most SNDA chapters across the country. The day offers undergraduate students a preview of life as a dental student. Students will get a tour of the school, experience mock interviews, and create an alginate impression.
SNDA’s second event is the student/faculty basketball game, one of the chapter’s most exciting fundraisers. Eleven students will be matched up against BU faculty on the South End Fitness court for a spirited game of basketball.
SNDA will also present an HIV/AIDS and Dentistry Lecture to promote Oral Health and AIDS awareness. Boston University faculty and a guest speaker will lead a discussion and question and answer panel at the lecture.
The BU SNDA Executive Board members are Ryan Pasiewicz DMD 15, President; Daniella Rizzo DMD 16, Vice President; Alyssa Mazzoli DMD 16, Community Service Coordinator; Luri Lee DMD 16, Secretary; and Michael Lee DMD 15, Treasurer.
