Join the California Dental Association and American Institute of Dental Public Health (AIDPH) in advancing veteran oral health in the state of California during our virtual road tour, a state-based series featuring tools, resources, data, and advocacy frameworks for improving access and outcome for veterans. This virtual road tour “stop” includes a dynamic one-hour session designed to empower state-based stakeholders to illuminate gaps and identify solutions for California veterans and their oral health. This interactive session will feature an overview of California veteran oral health state profile alongside national efforts to improve the oral health of veterans. During the didactic portion, we will delve into state-specific veteran oral health data sourced from AIDPH's comprehensive veteran oral health state profiles and our cutting-edge veteran oral health data dashboard. Discover the unique challenges and opportunities that define veteran oral health in your state, enabling you to tailor your advocacy efforts effectively. Attendees will engage in facilitated discussion for how to use information in clinical, research, and policy decision-making tailored to the needs of their own states. This portion of the session pivots to active listening and solution-building for attendees to share insights, identify knowledge gaps, policy shortcomings, data deficiencies, and advocacy needs specific to your state. By fostering an open dialogue, we aim to collectively generate solutions and strategies to drive impactful change at the state level. Embark on this virtual road tour with us, and together, let's equip ourselves with the tools and knowledge needed to effect tangible improvements in veteran oral health across the nation, one state at a time.
