IDHA ADVOCACY DAY at the STATE CAPITOL (1st Floor)
Monday, February 22nd, 8:00 am – 4:00 pm

Please volunteer for any time allotment – one hour to all day. RDH members, nonmembers, and students are welcome! The purpose is to educate legislators about our profession.

Come in scrubs to identify your profession, no advance training necessary. IDHA will help you prepare and educational fliers will be available to distribute. IDHA does not have legislation pending this year; therefore, advocating for our profession is the goal. Thank you for helping your profession make ADVOCACY DAY successful!

A MESSAGE FROM THE IDHA PRESIDENT, LISA HIGBEE

Hello Idaho Hygienists,

IDHA is entering a challenging and very exciting time as an Association. Dental hygienists in Idaho have voiced concerns and opinions about advancing our profession, changing our practice act and increasing job opportunities. Based on the recent survey results my first goal is to address communication with all dental hygienists and other health care professionals including, but not limited to: Idaho Oral Health Association, Idaho Rural Health Association, Idaho Public Health Association, the Idaho State Board of Dentistry and the Idaho State Dental Association. Other goals include revitalizing our state and local associations in addition to establishing our new charter required by ADHA. Many of you have noticed some local components are striving to remain vital and active. IDHA needs you to participate in keeping our association moving forward.

It does not matter if you are a newcomer to the Association or a seasoned member; you all have strengths that will benefit IDHA! There are many opportunities to serve by being on a committee or task force. It is time to get involved as little or as much as you desire. Please feel free to contact me via email or phone if you wish to help in any way. I look forward to celebrating you, Idaho Dental Hygienists, at IDHA's Annual Session October 2016. Dates and details coming soon!!!!

Respectfully,

LISA HIGBEE, RDH, BS
IdHA President
