Updating NH's Oral Health Plan - A Statewide Project
After a decade, the NH Oral Health Plan: A Framework for Action is being reviewed and updated to guide NH oral health stakeholders into the future. With the financial support of the HNH Foundation, the Endowment for Health, and Northeast Delta Dental, the Oral Health Plan update planning process has begun under the coordination and facilitation of the Health Resources in Action (HriA) consulting firm based in Boston. HriA works to advance public health and medical research with a mission "to help people live healthier lives and create healthy communities through prevention, health promotion, policy and research."
Under the guidance of a NH oral health stakeholder planning team, HriA is coordinating and completing a series of key information interviews, focus groups, and an advisory committee to elicit information, and prepare goals and plans for the future. They will be contacting many of you for input during this process.
