DC Bulletin Board Spotlight: AADMD!

American Academy of Developmental Medicine and Dentistry (AADMD) has taken over the 7th floor bulletin board! Throughout the month of March, check out the board by the student lounge to learn more about the group and the population it serves! Learn about the many service opportunities and great lectures offered by AADMD and check out interesting facts about those with intellectual and developmental disabilities and how we can better care for them as dental health professionals.

AADMD would like to highlight a special national event called End the R Word that happens every March. Spread the Word to End the Word is an ongoing effort by Special Olympics, Best Buddies, and their supporters to inspire respect and acceptance through raising the consciousness of society about the R-word and how hurtful words and disrespect can be toward people with intellectual disabilities.

Respectful and inclusive language is essential to the movement for the dignity and humanity of people with intellectual disabilities. However, much of society does not recognize the hurtful, dehumanizing and exclusive effects of the R-word.

The word retard (ed) hurts millions of people with intellectual disabilities, their families and friends.

Language affects attitudes. Attitudes impact actions.

Go online and make your pledge for #Respect today at www.R-word.org!

DC Bulletin Board Spotlight: Class of 2020!

TUSDM Class of 2020 has taken over the 7th floor bulletin board! Throughout the month of March, check out the board by the mailboxes to see great pictures and familiar faces! The D20s have been spending time together in and out of the classroom with potlucks, paint nights, planetarium trips, and the like. This bulletin board is an at-a-glance of the memories we’ve made so far, and we look forward to all the adventures headed our way!

Special shout out to Alicia Kim (D20) and Ruby Wagimin (D20) for putting together this beautiful collage!

 

Three Beautiful Human Minutes

“It’s easy to put people in boxes. There’s us, and there’s them”… At a time when basic human values of equality and freedom are being called into question on the global stage, it’s refreshing to see some counterpush.

The video shows a group of diverse people who discover that, beneath the surface, they have more in common with each other than what their outward appearances might suggest. Here at TUSDM, we embrace diversity in all of its dimensions, and this video speaks powerfully on behalf of our community. Maybe there truly is more that brings us together than we think.
