A special thanks to Dr. Jeff Hurst who has taken time this spring to speak to several student groups about the importance of political involvement.
On Feb. 1, Dr. Hurst presented to a class at the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine. He shared information about federal and state legislative initiatives, what has been accomplished through past dental advocacy efforts and the importance of political involvement in your profession.
Yesterday, April 5, Dr. Hurst spoke to two dozen pre-dental students at the University of Colorado Denver on similar topics.
Educating students about the importance of advocacy and involvement is a great long-term investment in the profession.
