Improving the Oral Health of Native American Children through Mobile Health

Project Type: 
Kids
Grant Type: 
DTA Foundation
Year: 
2016

“This grant will allow us to pilot a mobile health project that could have a far reaching impact on Tribal Head Start children,” said McMillen Health CEO Holli Seabury. “These children have an extremely high rate of dental decay, and yet there is little information about the messaging that would resonate with them. This project will give us the opportunity to talk to a number of parents and direct service personnel so we can develop a project with culturally appropriate messaging for Tribal Head Start parents and children.”
