The theme for the NOHC this year is Oral Health Under Construction. One of the important components of anything under construction is the foundation. Oral Health Programs (OHPs) need to have a strong foundation to build upon; especially given the challenging environment of state government. Part I will discuss mentoring: how to mentor and how to get the most out of being a mentee. During this session participants will participate in interactive conversations about how current challenges facing OHPs can be viewed as potential opportunities. Part II will cover topics that include: fundamentals of working within the state system, diversifying funding streams, working effectively within communities to build partnerships, the role of oral health coalitions in supporting OHPs, identifying leadership and partnership opportunities, identifying the culture impacting OHPs and understanding the role effective communication plays in sustaining a strong OHP foundation. During this session attendees will have the opportunity to share the type of support they need, and want, in order to be the leadership builder in their OHP.
