KDA Video Minute – February 4, 2013




Past President Dr. Don Williams Passes Away 




We learned over the weekend that Dr. Don Williams, who served as President of the Kansas Dental Association, passed away late last week.  Williams served as president in 1983.  The KDA is thankful for his service to organized dentistry and for the commitments he made to both the Topeka District Dental Society and the KDA.  His obituary can be found on the KDA website.



Hearing on HB 2157 Scheduled




We learned after filming the KDA Video Minute last week that a hearing for HB 2157 has been scheduled for February 21 in the House Committee on Health and Human Services.  We’ll provide more information to you in advance of that hearing.  We’ve provided a listing of the committee members on our website.
