DMD Student Wins 2016 Legislative Liaison of the Year Award

Eddie Lee, DMD Class of ’17,  was selected by his American Student Dental Association (ASDA) peers for the Legislative Liaison of the Year Award.

“Roseman’s DMD program is producing leaders who are being recognized for their contributions to the profession and the public it serves,” said William Harmon, College of Dental Medicine Associate Dean for Admissions and Student Services.

The Legislative Liaison of the Year Award honors an outstanding legislative liaison for motivating and organizing his/her chapter in the legislative arena and getting the chapter involved in advocacy efforts and events. There is no formal application for the Legislative Liaison of the Year award. The Council on Advocacy selects the winner based on nominations from the legislative coordinators. The award is presented at National Dental Student Lobby Day.

The National Dental Student Lobby Day was held April 11 through April 12th in Washington, D.C. It was a chance for dental students to get involved in advocacy and help give a voice to the issues that they care about. Attendees reviewed the key issues and meet with members of Congress and their staffs to impact policy decisions.

Congratulations to Eddie Lee, Roseman ’17, for being named the 2016 Legislative Liaison of the Year.
