CHHS Institute for Rural Health Receives $20,000 Grant

The Institute for Rural Health in the College of Health and Human Services has received a $20,000 grant from the Delta Dental of Kentucky Foundation.

The funds will be used for the IRH’s Mobile Dental Outreach in Rural Kentucky project. The generous grant provided by the Delta Dental of Kentucky Foundation will allow the IRH to purchase health promotion materials and dental supplies for the preventive programs offered by the IRH’s Mobile Dental Unit. The IRH’s preventive dental programs consist of Kindergarten screenings for school entry, dental sealant program for second and seventh grade children, and a fluoride varnish program for head start children within medically underserved areas in south central Kentucky.

According to the Director, Matt Hunt, the IRH estimates it will provide over 2, 700 dental procedures in the community in 2016. “We are excited for the opportunity to continue offering our dental services in underserved and health professional shortage areas in south central Kentucky,” Hunt said.
