 Lobby day
         Garza and Olatunbosun with Congressman
                Elijah  E. Cummings of Maryland.

Second-year dental student Esteban Garza and fourth-year dental student Saosat Olatunbosun participated in the annual National Dental Student Lobby Day, March 10-11, in Washington, D.C.

The event is hosted by the American Dental Education Association and the American Student Dental Association. The experience offers a unique opportunity for dental students to get involved in the policymaking that can impact their future profession.
 
More than 250 dental students traveled to Capitol Hill to learn how to promote their dentistry interests while serving as a valuable resource for legislators.

Attendees also learned about legislation and met with members of Congress from their home districts.
