This Summer there are several Chicago area health fairs that need your help! They invite health professionals, community organizations, social services, entertainment, etc. from the Chicagoland area in order to help meet the needs in our community and provide an empowering day. This is a fantastic opportunity for the UIC College of Dentistry to reach out to this community of homeless women and their families and educate their clients about proper oral hygiene.
July 26 Health Fair Training
We will offer training on Oral health education for those who are interested to volunteering for the Health Fairs. RSVP to Khatija Noorullah at email@example.com.
