Learn how to become involved in protecting community water fluoridation in Kansas at the kick-off of a new Statewide Water Action Team (SWAT). The new SWAT will debut at a seminar presented by the American Dental Association’s expert on water fluoridation science, communication, and challenges.
Jane McGinley, Manager of Fluoridation and Preventive Health Activities at the ADA’s Council on Advocacy for Access and Prevention, has over two decades of experience in community water fluoridation.
For more than 70 years, community water fluoridation has led to dramatic declines in the prevalence and severity of tooth decay. In order to expand the number of people in the U.S. who receive the benefits of fluoridated water, it is not only necessary to initiate new fluoridation programs, but also maintain current programs.
Every fluoridation campaign presents unique challenges. Participants will learn about various campaign strategies and how to involve the community in fluoridation efforts. Effective communication strategies and techniques to get positive messages to decision makers and the public will also be covered.
This seminar is a partnership between Kansas Dental Association, KDHE Bureau of Oral Health and Oral Health Kansas and is underwritten by the KDHE Bureau of Oral Health.
