Hawkeye Community College

Students attend IDHA fall event.

Recently, a few of the SADHA members participated in a diabetes clinic in the community of Waterloo. We handed out information telling community members about the relationship between diabetes to periodontal disease. The freshman and senior class just attended IDHA's (Iowa Dental Hygienists Association) Fall Event where we learned about new and upcoming research and attended different presentations with phenomenal speakers.

Coming up, Hawkeye will be hosting a Health Compliance day for high school juniors and seniors where they can come to experience the different health care career options. Hawkeye puts on different scenarios and then each health department will discuss how they will treat the scenario. It's a very educational experience for the high schoolers as well as the college students because we get to apply our experiences from class to people who are new to the field.

This coming summer Hawkeye will be starting construction on a new Health Sciences building. There will be brand new dental clinic with new and improved technology. The new building will be state of the art and will enhance the learning of future students to come.

The student/faculty meeting was held Sept. 28th in Ankeny at the FFA Enrichment Center on the DMACC campus. Students heard from speaker Cindy Purdy in the morning on Ergonomics and in the afternoon our President Elect, Jen Pierce set up a panel of Dental Hygienists that shared different career choices for dental hygienists. Students were able to ask questions to the panel during this time. It was a great success!
