What It Took to Bring Home the Gold

By | Advocacy | No Comments

By: Spencer Tepe

The Ohio State University College of Dentistry Advocacy Team is fresh off a meaningful victory for both its chapter and District 6. Just 12 months ago, OSU ASDA installed a new governing hierarchy that would prove to benefit the chapter immensely. The Legislative Liaison was welcomed on to the executive board, and an LL-elect position was created. Ohio State placed new emphasis on advocacy and strove to involve more members in legislative efforts. In the course of a year, OSU ASDA’s Advocacy Team rallied to compile a list of events and efforts that in turn earned the chapter a Gold Crown in Legislative Initiatives. So what exactly did it take?

2014 Gold Crown in Legislative Initiatives Recipe:

– 12 National Student Lobby Day 2014 attendees including an in-person meeting with Congressman Stivers of the 15th district of Ohio
– 1 ASDA bar crawl for recruitment
– 1 volleyball tournament for recruitment
– 1 D1/D2 social for recruitment
– 1 ASDA fair for recruitment
– A visit from Congressman Stivers to OSU COD where he fielded questions regarding policy
– 1 ODPAC Trivia night with 77 attendees
– 1 Beat Michigan Week ADPAC drive
– 1 letter writing campaign directed at state senators regarding the passing of Ohio House Bill 463
– 1 senator calling campaign the day senators were to vote on HB 463, a day on which the bill was unanimously passed
– 44 D1 attendees at Day at the Statehouse in downtown Columbus, OH

The highlights of these efforts were hosting Congressman Stivers and helping to pass HB 463. Ohio House Bill 463 is a multifaceted bill that addresses access to care in the state of Ohio. It also introduced the option of students to forego a licensure live-patient exam and attend a PGY-1 program as means to attain a license in the state of Ohio. Bills such as Ohio House Bill 463 are vital in the progression of dentistry. It is critical that dental students and doctors alike participate in the legislative process. The willingness that Ohio State has demonstrated to participate in this process assuredly weighed heavily in the council’s evaluation for the Gold Crown in Legislative Initiatives.

So there you have it. A cookbook recipe to Gold Crown “fame and stardom.” District 6 is now prepared to repeat in this category and Ohio State challenges YOU to do so.

 

Annual Session 2015

By | National Meetings | No Comments

Attending Annual Session allowed me many opportunities that I am very thankful for. Having served as the Membership Chair for our own ASDA branch last year, I arrived in Boston eager to discuss membership issues and share ideas with leaders at the other colleges across the country. Over a couple of networking lunches and dinners, I gathered a number of potential ideas to implement here at OSU from several student leaders of schools ranging from Houston to Nebraska. I also attended a break-out session one morning devoted to Membership planning, and I am excited to share what I learned with Mike Vieth, our new Membership Chair.

Annual Session also allowed me to gain a more complete insight into how ASDA works on a national scale, and how the leadership is split up and decided. It was interesting (and entertaining) to watch each of the candidates for president, vice president, and speaker of the house answer questions and speak their cases in front of all of the 600 plus ASDA leaders that were in attendance. I think the greatest benefit I took out of attending Annual Session, though, is the so-called “ASDA fever” that I caught the first night of the session and still, remarkably, have going strong. The energy and enthusiasm that everyone had for organized dentistry and improving our profession was contagious. It was inspiring to see students from all over coming together to share ideas and work towards unified goals. I am very thankful and humbled to have been given the chance to attend Annual Session. I left Boston with a greater knowledge of ASDA on a national scale, and a stronger direction of how I want to lead our chapter here at Ohio State over the coming year.
