Monday Roundtable Luncheon
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Division of Oral Health (DOH) works to prevent and control oral diseases and conditions by promoting population-based interventions to promote oral health, monitoring oral disease across the nation, supporting state health departments, promoting adherence to infection prevention and control guidelines in dental settings, managing a dental residence program to support the workforce, and working to integrate oral health programs into chronic disease prevention efforts and medical care.
To better position CDC to support oral health efforts at the local, state, and national levels, CDC invites partner programs and organizations to share their observations on the changing public health and health care landscape and how these changes impact their ability to implement and maintain effective programs. What does CDC need to understand about your work environment? Are there external factors impacting your ability to implement programs and interventions that CDC might not be fully aware of? What opportunities should we be exploring or highlighting? Looking ahead, what causes the most excitement and what the most anxiety?
This roundtable will engage participants in an open discussion on the ever changing environment and identify 3-5 options that will be included in ongoing DOH strategic planning discussions for how we can better work together to achieve improved oral health for our nation.
