DHASNY statewide Empire Conference – A Great Success

LIDHA – Thank you for participating: The 2016 conference in Binghamton, NY was complete with CE presentations, professional updates, networking opportunities, dental hygiene discussions, visits with vendors and student presentations. It was wonderful seeing all of our NY colleagues.

Save the Date:  2017: November 3-5 in White Plains, NY. Watch for updates

This past weekend LIDHA attended the New York State Dental Hygienists’ Association Empire Conference in Binghamton, New York. Long Island was well represented with five delegates, LIDHA executive board and our director to DHASNY. Several of the faculty from the Dental Hygiene department of Farmingdale State College were in attendance.

New York was also honored to have Betty Kabel, the President of ADHA in Binghamton meet with our NY State leaders, attend the President’s Dinner and sit in as a guest at the second house session Sunday morning.

It was productive weekend as well as informative with several excellent continuing education courses. Elections were held and Long Island’s Donna DiGioia was voted in as President elect.

New York State has made progress moving our profession forward and our leaders are working hard to collaborate with the medical community to move dental health into a more prominent role.

Next year the Empire Conference will be held at the Crowne Plaza in White Plains NY November 3-5, 2017.
