2023 Chapter of the Year Award Winner

Louisiana State University School of Dentistry

2023 Chapter Winner - LSU

The 2022–2023 school year was the year of revitalization for the Louisiana State University AGD student chapter. The student chapter worked hard to recruit 75 new members and host 9 continuing education sessions. They also expanded their chapter offerings and began hosting general meetings for student members. LSU AGD found ways to give back to the community as a group, including their World Mental Health Day event which featured a "paws"-itivity board and therapy dogs. Due to the growth of their student chapter, LSU expanded chapter leadership roles to allow for a more seamless distribution of responsibility. Kudos to the LSU AGD student chapter!
