The oral public health workforce is an integral component in the development of a unified voice for public health, health equity and social justice. Regional Oral Health Specialists (ROHS), in collaboration with rural health departments, provide an integrated health approach to decreasing disparities. Attendees will learn about the ROHS model via a panel discussion. ROHS will showcase how oral public health has increased access to mental health services and chronic disease prevention and management.
