On October 30th, 2014, MUSC ASDA along with other MUSC organizations volunteered at the 2014 Sugar Free Fall Festival. This event, held every year in the MUSC Wellness Center, allows for juvenile diabetic patients to experience a fun, and sugar-free halloween with fun and goofy volunteers. Every year has a great turnout, and this year did not disapoint. MUSC ASDA was there with a fun 'Fishing Game' where the children got a sugar-free candy treat as their catch-of-the-day. Happy Halloween everyone!!!

On Friday August 8th and Saturday August 9th, MUSC dental students and faculty volunteered for the Annual SCDA Dental Access Day (DAD) Project.  The DAD Project provides free dental care to South Carolina citizens in different cities each year.

On Saturday, March 2, a group of MUSC ASDA members got together through Keeping Charleston Beautiful to clean an area downtown under the interstate. The organization was nice enough to provide trash bags and trash pickers and even collected the gathered trash that we left on the side of the road when we were done. Thank you to all of the volunteers and to Keeping Charleston Beautiful for doing just that!

On October 25th at the MUSC Wellness Center, the MUSC “Gives Back” Student Volunteering Program and the Pediatric Endocrinology Clinic hosted the 16th Annual Sugar-free Fall Festival for children with diabetes.

This past weekend our students volunteered at the Special Olympics here in Charleston. It was a great opportunity to improve our skills as clinicians and to give back to the community. We arrived at the McAlister Field House early and set up near the basketball courts. Throughout the day the teams would come through our section where we provided clinical screenings for the participants, mouth guards, oral hygiene instruction, and finally rotary toothbrushes with floss and paste. Thank you to the SC Special Olympics for allowing us to come and participate in this great event, thanks to all our sponsors,...

This past weekend MUSC ASDA volunteered at MUSC's Martin Luther King Day of Service here in Charleston. It was a great opportunity to get out in the community and to help promote oral health. We had a good turn out of volunteers and saw many very thankful participants. This year we partnered up with the Occupational Therapy students. The kids were especially fun to work with. They loved brushing the puppet's teeth, and everyone was thankful for the fresh toothbrushes, paste, and floss that we handed out. Thanks again to Colgate, Crest, and Give Kids a Smile for helping us with supplies. Can't wait unti...

On October 30th, the MUSC Wellness Center gym was transformed into a spooky cave of streamers, purple lights, and colorful balloons for the fall festival. Student volunteers manned each game station and distributed prizes. A DJ played upbeat music as the children enjoyed a game of softball, jump castle, and sugar-free food carefully labeled with carbohydrate content by a registered dietitian.

A few weeks ago, MUSC ASDA and ADEA helped sponsor a booth at the annual MLK Building Bridges to Health event at Sanders Clyde Elementary. We meet with parents and children from downtown Charleston demonstrating proper oral hygiene techniques and giving away several hundred dollars worth of samples. Thank you to Colgate, Crest, and Glaxo Smith Kline for their support. It was a lot of fun, and a great opportunity to give back to the community.
