WKU’s Institute for Rural Health has received a $2,500 gift from the Kentucky Dental Association Foundation.
The funds will be used 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.
“This generous gift will allow the IRH to continue providing essential preventive dental services for rural Kentuckian children,” Hunt said.
