How long is your waiting list? How many times have you thrown it away as your contact information is no longer relevant? Community Health Workers, as the “eyes and ears” of our medical colleagues out in the field, are ready to address the health care needs of individuals across the lifespan, from babies to pregnant women to our esteemed elders. They can bring the relevance of good overall health to the community and those living within it. Prevention and education are their tools of the trade. Integrating oral health into that already existing case management and care coordination system will make a difference! Bringing oral health into the overall health care conversation will enhance efficiency, effectiveness, productivity and profitability (no margin, no mission). This integration will truly make a demonstrable impact within the overall health of the community, not just in the lives of individuals who have been lucky enough to “break into the system.” Presenters will address how individuals with both case management and oral health knowledge can make a measureable difference within the oral health status of the community and will share personal experiences of success in this area. Isn’t it time to leave the status quo at the door and find a new way of making a difference?
