The School of Dental Medicine’s DMD organization was started by students in 2011 as a vehicle for conducting community outreach and gaining leadership skills and as a way to develop the life-long practice of giving back to the community. DMD also enables students to attend social events and socialize with not only each other, but with other organizations as well.
DMD was named Outstanding Organization for 2012-2013 by the East Carolina University Office of Student Activities and Organizations. Students volunteer with many community-based programs, including . . .
