The nccPA Health Foundation has funding remaining this year for two programs that equip PA educators and students to integrate oral health as part of overall health. Don’t miss out on these dollars (or the experience of applying for a small grant) and the opportunity to make a change to improve health! The two grants available are:
- Community Outreach Grant: Receive up to $500 for a project to raise oral health awareness, provide prevention and education, or offer screenings and treatment in your community.
- Research Integration Grant: Receive up to $3,000 to integrate oral health into your PA program curriculum or your clinical practice and evaluate your strategies.
There is no hard deadline to apply, but grants are considered as they are received until all funds are expended. Projects can extend into 2018. Get started designing a project to help PAs, students, and patients recognize the oral-systemic connection.
