The members of the Dubuque Component of IDHA are ready for another year of networking and fellowship. We will be trying to recharge our component by having a fall continuing education program on October 24. We will be looking for ideas on ways to improve our component from those who are in attendance.
This past year the component only hosted one continuing education program, the goal this year is to have more informal meetings to try and bring members and non-members together more often. One idea is to have a tasting of dental products night, an informal gathering where we would sample some of the products that we may recommend to our patients. We had members doing presentations in area schools, participating in a career fair, and providing in-service education at long term care facilities. It is wonderful when members step up to provide community service; this is a great way to network. Find more information here.
