Oral Health Leader Continues 5-year Tradition of Recognizing Community Change-Makers
As the leading voice of oral health for all, DentaQuest recognizes and showcases the heroic efforts of community partners and health advocates we call the DentaQuest Health Equity Heroes. These are the change-makers who challenge their peers and communities to work together to remediate disparities in health and to build a stronger, healthier nation. We salute them for their hard work to improve access and for their help in redefining prevention and care.
“Since 2015, we have made it a priority to highlight the critical and inspiring work of these leaders who are changing health in America in large and small ways,” said Steve Pollock, president and CEO of DentaQuest. “As we work to ignite the revolution we call Preventistry, we are proud to continue this important tradition of recognizing community leaders who share and reflect our passion.”
DentaQuest is currently accepting nominations and will select six Health Equity Heroes for 2019. Each will receive:
- A commemorative plaque highlighting their accomplishment
- A $2,000 donation in their name to support the work of a health-related 501(c)3 nonprofit of their choice
- Recognition in DentaQuest outreach and communication materials throughout the year
