On Thursday November 3, Hannah G. McClellan accepted an award from Missouri College on behalf of the Institute for Family Medicine. The award was in recognition of the partnership that the Institute has with the Missouri College Dental Hygiene Program and the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services’ Preventive Services Program. Through this collaboration, 358 young children in St. Louis and the surrounding area received dental screenings, fluoride varnish and a referral. In addition, 682 young children benefited from the oral hygiene education provided by the dental hygiene students this past fall. The Institute for Family Medicine has been a partner with PSP since 2008.
