Dental school is stressful! That's why it's so important that we have healthy and fun ways to handle those stresses. That's where ASDA's wellness committee comes in. We are a group of students that are dedicated to helping you to lead a happy and healthy life. Providing outlets for students outside the clinic and classroom allows us to build a strong community of support and present opportunities for personal development. Search #BeWellASDA and #TempleASDA on Facebook and Instagram, to see what dental students across the country are doing to improve their wellness!
Additional information about the wellness initiative from National ASDA can be found here. For our local ASDA chapter, please contact Sona Saxena at firstname.lastname@example.org or Anisha Bhakta at email@example.com for any additional questions.
Temple ASDA dedicates a whole month to promote wellness in September, which is wellness month! If you need somewhere to start your wellness journey, consider ASDA’s monthly wellness challenges.

Feeling hungry?? ASDA challenges YOU to eat good this month. When we say good... we mean GOOD. Leafy greens, whole grains, vegetables, maybe some chicken or tofu. Yup, its a healthy eating challenge. Show us what you've got. This month, take a picture of your food and post it to your instagram. Tag @temple_ASDA to enter. You have until October 24th to enter!
What do you win? A Starbucks gift card, so that you can relax from all that healthy cooking you've been doing with a green tea (or a cake pop- we wont tell).
Get cooking and get 'gramming! And remember, phone eats first.
