Improve the Public Perception of the Value of Oral Health to Overall Health
This investment supports the New Hampshire Oral Health Coalition to continue to provide leadership, advocacy, and education for legislators, policymakers, and health leaders in the state around the importance of oral health, a strong and diverse workforce, and Medicaid adult dental benefits. Specifically, NHOHC will identify, educate, and convene legislative champions and other stakeholders around the importance of oral health; conduct a statewide communications campaign to engage consumers in advocacy efforts; and provide ongoing technical assistance and support to network members related to health equity and reducing health disparities. The coalition will work collectively to improve public perception of the value of oral health within overall health and the target that oral health is increasingly included in health dialogue and public policy. $65,799 will be used to support personnel time, meeting expenses, and other administrative costs associated with the project's implementation.
