Dental educators, administrators, students, residents, fellows and
industry experts are convening March 15-18 in San Antonio, TX, for the
2014 American Dental Education Association (ADEA) 91st Annual
Session & Exhibition. More than 2,200 attendees will fill the Henry B.
Gonzalez Convention Center for four days of plenary sessions with
world-renowned presenters, thought-provoking faculty development
workshops and award presentations, including the prestigious 2014
William J. Gies Awards for Vision, Innovation and Achievement.
The 2014 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition will offer more than 100
engaging sessions around the theme "The Science of Learning," more than
60 of dental education's premier partners and solutions providers and
keynote appearances from Nina Godiwalla, M.B.A.; Neuroscientist David
Eagleman; Van Jones, J.D. and Rishi Desai, M.D.
The Opening Plenary at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday, March 16, featuring Dr.
Eagleman, author of The New York Times bestseller Incognito:
The Secret Lives of the Brain, navigates the depths of the
subconscious brain to illuminate its surprising mysteries, prompting
audiences to celebrate how much and how joyously little is known about
our conscious selves and our reality.
"This year's theme brings into sharp focus our understanding of how the
brain works and the implication for the ways we teach," sas Stephen K.
Young, D.D.S., M.S., Chair of the ADEA Board of Directors. "By
challenging ourselves, we will continue to raise the quality and
consistency of our profession by striving to understand how the brain
learns and how we can use that knowledge to provide our students with
the best dental education possible."
Media representatives are invited to attend, and photos will be
available upon request following the conclusion of the event.
In 2015, the ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition moves to Boston, MA. The
theme of next year's event, scheduled for March 7-10, is "Igniting Minds
and Unlocking Potential." For more information and details on how to
