Communications Committee

"The Communications Committee produces clear and timely avenues of communication between the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine students, faculty, and staff, as well as National ASDA and the dental community. They are the authors of the Pitt and Fissure publication."

Committee Chair
Jessica Melo, 2021



Hi, I'm Jess! I was born in Cuba and raised in Miami, Florida. I went to the University of Florida, where I majored in Microbiology & Cell Science. During my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, dancing, or analyzing absurd Game of Thrones fan theories. I also love being outside on the rare occasions when the sun decides to make an appearance. I still feel like a tourist in Pittsburgh and am always open to exploring more of what The City of Bridges has to offer.

Committee Chair
Sarah Pasek, 2021

Hi, I'm Sarah! I'm from a tiny rural  farm town in Michigan. I  completed my undergrad at Oakland University in Auburn Hills, MI where I received a BS in Health Sciences. In my free time, I am a semi-professional Candy Crush player and self-proclaimed meme queen. I also operate an Instagram account detailing my dental school experience! Upon graduation, I will be practicing dentistry in the US Air Force Dental Corps.

Goals for the Year:

ASDA’s Communication Committee aims to increase communication within the Pitt Dental student body and faculty as well as to provide awareness of upcoming ASDA events, such as social activities, leadership retreats, lunch & learns, etc. Some of our roles include designing online posts, creating interactive events through social media, and managing the ASDA website. Photography, visuals, & design are our areas of expertise.
