Matthew Orlando, DMD '19, is our April Member of the Month. We were impressed by his dedication to health and wellness and his ability to balance that with being a student. His participation and success in the Boston Marathon were truly inspirational. We are also excited for Matt to join the ASDA Board as Health and Wellness Vice Chair. We will definitely be seeing more of Matt and his outstanding contributions to BU ASDA!

What motivated you to join the ASDA wellness committee?
I wanted to become involved with the committee that promotes an overall healthy lifestyle, both physically and mentally, in our GSDM community. As a former collegiate runner, health & wellness has always been an important part of my life, so I saw this committee as an opportunity to continue my passions while meeting some great people.
Favorite ASDA school moment?
Wellness Week last year. Be sure to check your email here the next few days as this year’s Wellness Week is 5/1-5/5!!
Anything else you would like to add?
Take a half hour to an hour for yourself each day and do something for you. Whether it be running in this awesome city, working out, or cooking yourself a nice meal, decompressing from the daily demands of dental school is very important!!
