Register for PerioDash 2018!

It's that time of year - time to PerioDash! Join students and colleagues across the country as we show our support for the AAP Foundation and our dedication to our specialty. PerioDash is a "virtual" run, which means you can run or walk your 5K wherever you want, on your own schedule within our 2-week window: October 1 - 15. You can even complete your 5K on a treadmill!

Your $35 registration fee will earn you a limited edition PerioDash 2018 t-shirt and medal, along with the satisfaction that comes from doing something good for yourself and your specialty. If you are not able to participate in PerioDash, you can always make a gift to the Foundation in support of others who are running or walking.
