About the Workshop
This 2-day workshop is presented by the Virginia Oral Health Coalition and Community Tool Box to bring together partners from around the state who will gain or build upon the skills to:

  • Lead community-driven, collaborative initiatives, 
  • Garner support for collective action and policy change, and 
  • Build the infrastructure for sustainable system change.

This program is part of the Coalition's multi-year effort to foster increased collaboration to improve oral health care access, care delivery, and outcomes and boost Virginia's C+ grade on the 2016 Oral Health Report Card. The workshop is tailored for those who are involved in regional oral health alliances throughout the state, or those who would like to become involved, including: advocates, service providers, public health practitioners, and anyone with an interest in community health. 

If you are interested in learning more about how you can be a change agent for your community on oral health, this workshop is for you.
