Continued Effort with Innovative Approaches to Promote Oral Health in Pandemic Time
Through my project, I would like to share my continued effort of participating in various community projects involving oral health care education, dental screenings and presentations during the pandemic time by using innovative methods. This project also reflects my learning through these projects and a teaching material that I have been able to create for “Health Literacy, What Is It and Why Is It Important?” Sharing the work would allow a bigger platform for discussion to capture great ideas from the audience and feedback for further improvement as well as motivate fellow colleagues to participate actively in community health projects.
