BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – WKU’s Institute for Rural Health, part of the College of Health and Human Services, has received a $2,500 grant from the Kentucky Dental Association. Funds will be used to purchase dental supplies for the dental sealant and fluoride varnish initiatives offered through the Institute. Additionally, funds will also be used to purchase toothbrushes, toothpaste, and floss to be distributed in medically underserved areas in south central Kentucky.
“We are extremely thankful to receive this grant from the Kentucky Dental Association,” said Matt Hunt, Director of the Institute for Rural Health. “We received similar grants from the Kentucky Dental Association in the past, and it is encouraging to know they recognize and value the important work we are doing. Thanks to their continued support we can offer dental services to the rural populations of Kentucky.”
The mission of the Institute for Rural Health is to steward a high quality of life for rural populations and underserved areas by engaging students and faculty in service learning and research, by providing clinical services, and by serving as a global resource for improving health in rural communities.
