AAPHD members

Currently we bring in speakers to present on multiple topics including current topics in dph, future careers in dph, and individual experiences in the dph field. We have had field trips to St. Luke's in Cedar Rapids to observe a public health dental setting, and have also observed a school dental sealants program. We are working towards doing an outreach with the school sealants program, and oral cancer screenings in area retirement homes.
