Throughout childhood, I underwent a variety of dental procedures. After I had several teeth pulled in one go, I accidentally chewed a hole into my cheek.
The resources to pay for a dental visit aren’t available to everyone. And oral health inequities don’t just show up in kids, they affect all ages.
When I hear there’s a mass shooting, I know how the next couple days will play out. The victims of gun violence change, but the pattern stays the same.
In concluding my time on the board of directors with Center for Health Progress, I want to offer some reflections and immense thanks for such an extraordinary experience. I experienced remarkable organizational change with Center for Health Progress staff and my board colleagues, over this past decade.
I recently became Mental Health First Aid certified. The first thing I did after class was ask Mental Health Center of Denver about counseling services.
