ACNM 2015

On June 27th, 2015, our OHNEP team and our interprofessional colleagues led a workshop entitled "Teeth for Two: Midwives as Frontline Providers of Oral Health Care for Pregnant Women and Their Newborns" at the 60th Annual American College of Nurse Midwives (ACNM) Meeting.

During this interactive workshop, 50 midwives from across the country gained clinical competencies related to oral health assessment, oral health promotion interventions, and developed collaborative partnerships with interprofessional community colleagues and resources.

We thank all of the participants for devoting their afternoon to learning about the importance of oral health! We hope that you can re-enter your practice having gained all the tools necessary to "put the mouth back in the head," increase oral healthcare access, reduce disparities and improve oral-systemic consequences for your patients!
