CHICAGO--ADHA has announced that, in concert with its Strategic Plan commitment to operational excellence via data and knowledge-based decision making, that a new ADHA Survey/Research Center is being launched.
The goal for the ADHA Survey/Research Center is to become the professional association resource for information on the dental hygiene profession and to support data/information needs for ADHA on the national, state, and local levels.
"Advancing the dental hygiene profession and building our association require solid data to facilitate the decision making process," said ADHA President Lynn Ramer, LDH. "Increasingly, top performing professional associations consistently use data for decision making. The ADHA Survey/Research Center will formalize the data gathering process for our profession and allow us to make solid, data-based decisions."
McKenzie Smith, MPH, MEd, will be responsible for directing the ADHA Survey/Research Center, and will oversee association research initiatives in his capacity with the center.
"This is an exciting development for ADHA. The establishment of the ADHA Survey/Research Center is the first step toward building our dental hygiene research capabilities and working with a broad array of users including corporate partners, government agencies and national and state groups who need to latest data on the profession of dental hygiene," said .
