Virgin Islands Pediatric Outreach Continues

As part of NYUCD’s contract with the Virgin Islands Department of Health and Lutheran Social Services Early Head Start Programs to conduct free oral examinations every six months for youngsters enrolled in the program, a team of pediatric residents and faculty returned to St. Thomas and St. Croix for five days in October to provide 500 examinations. The program is supported by a grant from the American Dental Association Foundation’s (ADAF) Samuel Harris Fund.
