The 2023 Veteran Oral Health Action Collaborative (VOHAC) will spotlight concepts of care integration and value-based designs while advancing solutions to veteran oral health issues. This program will feature innovative presentations and hands-on applied learning facilitated by CareQuest Institute for Oral Health and the American Institute of Dental Public Health.
From June to November, monthly sessions will feature interprofessional presenters, build on concepts of care integration and value-based designs, and advance initiatives addressing veteran oral health issues. Clinical professionals, community representatives, and advocates who are committed to improving veteran oral health are encouraged to participate.
