Seattle is anxiously awaiting our arrival for the 2018 SAID Conference.  Read the media release here.

The University of Washington is the site of the 28th annual conference.  Over 20 speakers are scheduled with 15 hours of Continuing Education Credits.    Click here to review the schedule.  We will convene on Wednesday, June 20 and will wrap up on Sunday, June 24. This year, we have a couple new events:

--Saturday, please plan to stick around for the hands-on activities sponsored by the University of Washington for high school and pre-dent students interested in dentistry--an opportunity to share your expertise and talents with the students. 

--Sunday morning, we will gather at The Chief Seattle Club for Breakfast To Brushing To Blood Pressure, an interprofessional collaboration with our colleagues from Public Health Reserve Corps, Association of American Indian Physicians and The Children's Oral Health Institute.  Colgate has generously donated oral health kits to share with clients of the Chief Seattle Club.  PRHC and AAIP will provide blood pressure screenings while COHI and SAID members provide oral health education.  See the flyer here.
