Dr. Jane Weintraub Seminar: Integrating Primary Care and Oral Health Apr 03, 2018 from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM Sheps Center, 725 MLK JR BLVD, Chapel Hill NC ,
Oral health is closely tied to general health. Yet in education, practice, and policy, oral health is treated separately. Non-dental providers can have a key role in improving oral health and providing preventive oral health services, especially when people lack access to a dentist. Dental providers can provide screening, monitoring, and preventive health services when access to medical care is limited. This seminar will include examples of innovative programs that integrate oral health services and primary care practices. Parking is free and available.

Join us for a special panel presentation about the inner workings of an interdisciplinary team.

This post-graduate training program prepares mental health providers from all disciplines to deliver advanced mental health and substance use disorders interventions, and to become future leaders in systems change. The Fellowship is the first of its kind to provide intensive interdisciplinary training to occupational therapists and chaplains. We’ll discuss what it means to work on an interdisciplinary team, the different perspectives each profession bring to the table, communication and language differences between disciplines, and the roles occupational therapists and chaplains fill in the mental health realm. Please invite interested colleagues. Parking is free and available.
