The Greater Richmond and Petersburg Oral Health Forum, which took place in May 2017 (more info here), convened over 70 individuals from organizations in human services, health care, local and state government, and more. Together, we critically examined oral health data with demographic breakouts to get a snapshot of the oral health of the region, and identified potential priority issues and strategies for collective action to improve oral health and overall health.
Several participants from that convening will begin to carry forward the development of region-focused plans and partnership development to address several of the issues identified in the convening, leveraging existing initiatives, programmatic and policy efforts across jurisdictions. New partners are welcome and encouraged to attend the first meeting of the Greater Richmond & Petersburg Oral Health Steering Committee.
Please find meeting details below, and RSVP to Lauren Gray at firstname.lastname@example.org or 804-299-5506.
When: Monday, July 31, 2017, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
