Join The Harkin Institute for Public Policy & Citizen Engagement for our upcoming conference, “Closing the Divide: Integrating medical and dental health care” to learn more about effective strategies and inter-professional approaches to provide quality care for patients.

Oral health care is critical to overall health, but the current health care model is not set up to support collaboration. Join presenters and fellow providers for a discussion on new approaches to training for both dental and medical providers, promotion of team-based care, and development of medical treatments for oral health problems. Network with like-minded professionals dedicated to providing the highest level of patient care.

Join presenters that will share ideas and successful practices from across the United States, including keynote speaker Dr. Bruce Donoff, DMD, MD, Dean of the School of Dental Medicine at Harvard University. Plus, this is a great opportunity to network with peers. The conference will include lunch and a social-networking event immediately following the final presentation. Visit our Closing the Divide webpage to learn more and see a full agenda.
