2017-2020 Oral Health Workshops
During the last three years, CHWCMR conducted 36 oral workshops with a total of 784 participants living in rural and low-income communities in Washington State from 2017-2020.
Although we were affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic in 2020, we conduct a total of 4 virtual workshops statewide. A total of 87participant received preventive information about oral health by 2 CHWs who facilitate each workshop.
We had to learn how to do our work virtually and we provide with computers and training to our CHWs to manage the virtual meeting.
2021 Oral Need Assessment
CHWCMR is going to conduct a oral needs assessment to identify the need of our community to achieve oral health and determine the severity of their needs; and pinpoint the type of assistance they require to ensure prioritized, focused, response planning. Our CHWs will be trained to conduct the need assessment in their communities.
Thanks to Arcora Foundation for helping us to improve the quality of oral health in our statewide.
