American Mock World Health Organization Regional Conference May 20-21

AMWHO UW

The American Mock World Health Organization (AMWHO) has recently initiated a new chapter at the University of Washington, Seattle.

AMWHO welcomes all collegiate and high school students in the state of Washington to join them for our first annual AMWHO UW State Conference. This conference will be held on the University of Washington campus May 20-21st, 2017.

The goal of this regional conference is to create a platform for bright, enthusiastic minds to come together to engage in meaningful discussion and debate about healthcare policy as well as have an opportunity create profound policy change.

This conference serves to be an enriching experience wherein you will both understand the challenges of creating substantial global health policy change as well as augment your pre-existing passion for striving to optimize the health conditions of millions around the globe.

The theme for this AMWHO Regional Conference Washington 2017 is “Tackling Mental Health: Competency, Access, and Education,” a topic largely unexplored but one that has deep roots in science and healthcare policy. Mental health is a global problem that is often pushed under the rug as a “non-essential” topic. But this conference provides an opportunity to delve into this topic and create viable healthcare policy that can shape global perceptions and redefine cultural stigmas.

Participate in ASDA DAT Week, April 17-21

DAT week

The American Student Dental Association (ASDA) invites you to join predental students nationwide in celebrating DAT Week this April.
During the week, national ASDA will host three webinars:

Vital Information and Tips for Taking the DAT (2017)
April 17, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. CDT
Free for ASDA members and non-members – Register now

Description: The Dental Admission Test (DAT) is an integral part of applying to dental school and can be a source of tremendous stress for predental students. This session is intended to provide valuable information so that students can feel as comfortable and prepared as possible before they sit for the test. The webinar covers general DAT information, tips for studying, common problems encountered by test takers, and the most frequently asked questions about the DAT.

Presenter:  Nicholas B. Hussong, BA, manager, test administration, American Dental Association

Study Methods for the Natural Sciences (DAT)
April 19, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. CDT
Free for ASDA members and non-members
Register now

Description: As dental students know, you can’t fake your way through the Natural Sciences section of the DAT: either you have the knowledge on test day, or you don’t. This session will go over methods of not only learning that information, but retaining it as well. You’ll learn how to harness technology to study in the most effective and efficient ways, and will have the opportunity to ask high-scoring dental students for their advice.

Dissecting the DAT
April 20, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. CDT
Free for ASDA members and advisors/faculty*; $10 for non-member predentals
Register now

Description: Don’t let the DAT get you down! With a few simple strategies, several sections of the DAT can easily be broken down. This webinar will specifically look at two sections that are less familiar: the PAT and reading comprehension. Join our panelists as they dissect practice questions using common and lesser-known strategies. Panelists will also share general test taking tips so that you’ll be prepared to dominate the DAT.

For more information about DAT Week, go to ASDAnet.org/DATweek. You can also contact Brian Jones, membership development manager, at Brian@ASDAnet.org or 312-440-2841.
