JOHNSON CITY— Emma Tobias, a junior in East Tennessee State University’s Dental Hygiene Program, was selected as the American Dental Hygienists’ Association (ADHA) District VI Delegate.
As the delegate, she will represent dental hygiene students from Tennessee, Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi at the ADHA’s National Conference, currently planned for June 12-14 in New Orleans.
“At the conference, I will have the opportunity to make decisions to help the dental hygiene field nationwide,” said Tobias. “I will attend district workshops, attend all sessions of the ADHA House of Delegates, and become familiar with the ADHA’s Annual Report, Bylaws, and Policies.”
Tobias is a native of Eaton, Ohio, and will graduate from ETSU’s Dental Hygiene Program, located in the College of Clinical and Rehabilitative Health Sciences, next spring.
“I chose the Dental Hygiene Program at ETSU because the campus is so welcoming and feels like home,” Tobias said. “I’m so thankful to have such supportive and amazing professors. I have already learned so much from this program, and I can’t wait to learn more! I’m thankful to have this opportunity to serve my school and dental hygiene students from Tennessee, Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi.”
