Join TSOPHE for the September 2018 webinar of the Understanding and Addressing Health Equity in Texas webinar series.
Title: The State of Oral Health in Texas and Opportunities for Oral Health Promotion and Education
Speaker: Rhea P. Olegario, MPH, CHES(r)
Date: Tuesday, September 11, 2018
Webinar Description: Oral health is integral to overall health. Studies have shown that poor oral health has been associated with poor birth outcomes such as pre-term birth, millions of lost school hours in the US due to dental-related illness, increased risk for cardiovascular disease, and much more. With effective oral health education and promotion, many costly oral health related illnesses can be prevented. In Texas, many oral health disparities exist. This webinar will highlight major health disparities among the pediatric, perinatal, and older adult populations in Texas and discuss opportunities for health educators who may serve these populations.
