The American Dental Hygienists’ Association (ADHA) will host the 2016 ADHA Center for Lifelong Learning (CLL) at its 93rd Annual Session in Pittsburgh. Over 2,000 attendees are expected to attend the event, which runs from June 8 to 14, 2016.
This year’s program includes a diverse offering of continuing education (CE) programs within six different CE tracks. Attendees can choose from 30 CE programs and elect to follow a specific track, or diversify their selections based on interest and educational requirements.
In addition, the ADHA’s Institute for Oral Health will host the inaugural In Motion: 5K Run-Walk-Fun. The event, which will take place on June 9, 2016, along Pittsburgh’s waterfront, will raise funds for the foundation, which is committed to empowering, supporting, and developing education and research opportunities for dental hygiene professionals.
“ADHA’s CLL at the 93rd Annual Session is a one-of-a-kind, all-encompassing event for dental hygiene professionals and students,” said ADHA President Jill Rethman, RDH, BA. “Each year, this signature event offers outstanding opportunities that include excellent educational content, fun networking events, and a rewarding community outreach project. With the introduction of the In Motion: 5K Run-Walk-Fun, we’re engaging dental hygienists to participate in an exciting event that supports overall health and wellness. In addition, this event promotes opportunities for dental hygiene research and education by benefiting the ADHA’s Institute for Oral Health.”
This year’s CLL will again feature a community service day on June 8, as well as plenary sessions on June 9 and 11. A product exhibition hall will also showcase over 125 companies involved in oral health and dental hygiene. The exhibit hall will be open from June 10 to 11.
“CLL is an event that offers a unique opportunity in the oral health and dental hygiene community,” added ADHA Chief Executive Officer Ann Battrell, MSDH. “All of our attendees benefit from not just the education, but the experience, the networking, the engagement. They have the opportunity to interact with their peers, corporate sponsors, and mentors in the field to build their knowledge in oral health and create new career opportunities.”
