Chicago (January 12, 2016) — The American Dental Hygienists’ Association (ADHA) will serve as
the host for North America’s largest meeting of dental hygiene professionals at the 2016 ADHA
Center for Lifelong Learning (CLL) at the 93rd Annual Session (AS). Some 2,000-plus attendees are
expected to attend during the course of the week-long event, which takes place June 8-14, 2016,
at the David Lawrence Convention Center in downtown Pittsburgh.
This year’s program again features a diverse offering of continuing education (CE) programs within
six different CE tracks. Attendees can choose from 30 CE programs and elect to follow a specific
track, or diversify their selections based on interest and educational requirements.
In addition, for the first time ever, the ADHA’s Institute for Oral Health is hosting the inaugural In
Motion: 5K Run-Walk-Fun. This event — which will take place on Thursday, June 9, 2016, at 8 p.m.
along Pittsburgh’s riverfront — will allow attendees to participate in a unique event that raises
funds for the foundation committed to empowering, supporting, and developing education and
research opportunities for dental hygiene professionals.
“ADHA’s CLL at the 93rd Annual Session is a one-of-a-kind, all-encompassing event for dental
hygiene professionals and students,” said ADHA President Jill Rethman, RDH, BA. “Each year, this
signature event offers outstanding opportunities that include excellent educational content, fun
networking events and a rewarding community outreach project. With the introduction of the In
Motion: 5K Run-Walk-Fun, we’re engaging dental hygienists to participate in an exciting event that
supports overall health and wellness. In addition, this event promotes opportunities for dental
hygiene research and education by benefiting the ADHA’s Institute for Oral Health.”
This year’s CLL again features a community service day on June 8; a pair of inspiring plenary
sessions slated for June 9 and June 11, respectively; as well as a product exhibition hall
showcasing more than 125 companies involved in oral health and dental hygiene — affording
dental hygienists from around the globe the opportunity to view, learn and discover the latest
products and technologies over two full days from June 10-11, 2016.
“CLL is an event that offers a unique opportunity in the oral health and dental hygiene community,”
added ADHA Chief Executive Officer Ann Battrell, MSDH. “All of our attendees benefit from not just
the education, but the experience, the networking, the engagement. They have the opportunity to
interact with their peers, corporate sponsors and mentors in the field to build their knowledge in
oral health and create new career opportunities.”
