The Facts About Sports Drinks
Written by our own District 11 Secretary, Maya Giannetti, this Contour article published in the summer dives into the importance of being aware of the sugar content in common sports drinks. It is our responsibility to inform our patients about the oral health risks of products advertised as “healthy,” and to be able to offer guidance on how to minimize risk when consuming these beverages. Check out the article below for the story behind sports drinks advertising as well as some tips we can offer our patients.
A big thank you to Maya Giannetti for such an important contribution to our national publication! If you are interested in writing for Contour as well, please feel free to contact us at district11ASDA@gmail.com.
Happy New Year.
Your District 11 Newsletter Chairs,
Ava Pournejad, USC ’22 and Kelsey Lomen, UCLA ’22
