Free Dental Care Available to the Community

Thursday, January 22nd, 2009

This comes from Latisha James, Director of the Center for Community Partnerships at Case Western Review University:

Prophy Day, a community outreach initiative sponsored by the School of Dental Medicine‘s Student Council, will take place from 9 a.m. to noon, Saturday, January 24, at the dental school. More than 100 students will provide free dental care to the public. No appointment is needed for the first-come, first-served exams, which will include x-rays and cleanings. Patients must be 18 years or older, and not a current patient or someone with full dentures. Those in need of additional dental work will receive a $20 voucher to be used for a future appointment at the school’s clinic, while other patients may qualify for some free or extensively reduced services. Faculty will oversee the dental students. Call 368-3570 or 368-0450 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. for information.

Education Pays – Get Yours

Monday, January 12th, 2009

African-American college graduates make, on average, one million dollars more over their lifetimes than people with only a high school degree. You do the math. – Education Pay$.

Education Pays – Get Yours is a campaign designed to motivate youth, particularly African-American 10-13 year old boys, to connect with services, people and programs that will help them achieve success in school. This program is being coordinated in three Cleveland neighborhoods: Mt. Pleasant, Central and Slavic Village. BBC is serving as a lead agency in the Central neighborhood.

When contacted, BBC will provide youth with names and phone numbers to area agencies in the Central neighborhood that provide educational and mentoring resources. This will allow youth to have direct access to ask any questions they may have based on their individual needs.

Education Pays – Get Yours will run until August 2009. Keep in touch with BBC and area agencies to learn about more exciting projects and initiatives that this project has in store in the coming months!

If you are interested in more information, please contact BBC at 216.341.1455, or visit the Education Pays – Get Yours website at:
