Dental student elected House Speaker of ASDA

A student from the Dental College of Georgia was elected Speaker of the House of Delegates for the American Student Dental Association (ASDA) during the national organization’s annual meeting in Orlando, Fla. last week.

Abby Halpern, currently finishing her last year of dental school, brings a substantial amount of background knowledge and experience with ASDA to her new position as House Speaker. Prior to the election, she spent two years on ASDA’s Council of Advocacy and served as president of ASDA’s Georgia chapter.

The ASDA House of Delegates also elected a new president and two vice presidents during the national conference. Each group member chosen for a leadership role will serve their peers and endeavor to uphold organizational values for the next year.
