VPAL Signature Event – Oral Health Equity Now: Policy, Progress, and Research Insights

November 29th, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Oral health equity is a vital concern that is not often seen as a priority for the public and policy makers. Oral health and overall health are inextricably linked. The mouth mirrors the body. Inequities in oral health often reflect broader health and societal inequalities. Understanding oral health disparities empowers individuals and communities to advocate for policies and practices that promote equal access to dental care. Join Dr. Catherine Hayes and Dr. Hawazin Elani in a discussion of the complexities that surround oral health equity, public health policies, and cutting-edge research happening today. More information can be found on the VPAL Events page.
