This month NADP also celebrated the volunteers who went the extra mile in their service to the organization with the presentations of the Gabryl, Don Mayes Leadership and Star Awards during CONVERGE 2012 in Scottsdale, Arizona.

MedTech Media's Healthcare Payer News - Anthony Brino interviewed NADP Executive Director Evelyn F. Ireland about projections for pediatric dental plans, based on some of the analysis from NADP's June Issue Brief.
