On June 18, 2014, the UCLA ASDA Veterans Services Committee participated in the Veterans & Family Resource Expo. It was organized by the San Fernando Valley Veterans Employment Committee and took place from 9am to 3pm at the California Army National Guard in Van Nuys. The event sought to provide employment resources, health benefits, disability compensation, and other healthcare resources to veterans. The UCLA ASDA Veterans Services Committee provided oral hygiene instruction, complimentary dental hygiene supplies, and information on low-cost dental clinics in Los Angeles County to several hundred veterans at the expo.

UCLA ASDA had a strong showing at the first ever District 11 | Advocacy Academy meeting at Western University of Health Sciences. This meeting highlighted the importance of dental legislation & dental advocacy throughout the nation. We were lucky enough to have Dr. Robert Hanlon ( CDA Government Council ) & Arizona Congressman Paul Gozar speak on issues concerning advocacy & lobbying. We hope to further educate UCLA on these issues at upcoming events.

The Bresee Foundation is an after school youth program for low-income children and families. We provided OHI to around 120 middle school students. In order to give the kids a hands-on experience, we set up different stations which included: dental hygiene and brushing tips, nutrition, arts and crafts to build a mouth model, and introduction to alginate impressions. The foundation was very excited at the prospect of having us come since they haven't had OHI in years and they hope for us to come back next year!
