50th EDSA Meeting in Lyon (France)
The 50th EDSA Meeting and the 38th ADEE Annual meeting took place in Lyon, France. As in past years W&H was again one of the official sponsors of the international congress of the European Dental Student Association (EDSA). Around 75 dental students from different European countries joined the EDSA meeting in Lyon. Lithuania, who have joined EDSA recently, attended the meeting for the first time.
One of the topics of the EDSA meeting: Social Media – dress all existing EDSA channels in one uniform style and present all the news and publication through the channels. Get "friend" with EDSA on Facebook
The EDSA is engaged in several voluntary projects, among them for example the "Amchi Programme": Amchi are Buddhist nuns who provide healthcare in the Ladakh region of Northern India. Within this programme students train the Amchis in basic dental care, educate the local population on oral health and provide dental health care services.

The next EDSA meeting will take place in Spring 2013 in Belgrade, Serbia.
