Past accomplishments of the Editorial Board:

At the date of publication of this report, 54 chapters have contributed more than 324 articles and blog posts over the past year. The Editorial Board expects to receive contributions from the remaining 11 chapters before their term ends.
- Blog surveys: For the first time, ASDA’s Editorial Board used survey tools to write a blog post.
- ASDA News and Mouth
- Interprofessionalism in ASDA’s publications: The Editorial Board organized collaboration with students from other dental organizations in an effort to showcase interprofessionalism. An article authored by SPEA Executive Chair Katie Bell was published in the summer issue of Mouth. More articles are forthcoming.
- Mouthing Off
- Wellness Wednesday: In support of ASDA’s Wellness Initiative, the electronic editors started including one wellness post each month.
