Katie Takach, D4, was recognized by the American Association of Public Health Dentistry with the 2018 Student Merit Award. Award recipients are invited to present their research projects at the upcoming National Oral Health Conference. Takach’s presentation, “The Oral Health Needs of Women Inmates in Phoenix, Arizona,” will explore the financial, social, and psychological barriers that prevent populations from accessing oral healthcare.
“The project has allowed me to better understand barriers to care,” says Takach. “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to share my work, while collaborating with other dental providers in the public health field.”
Takach will present her work at the National Oral Health Conference, April 24-26 in Louisville, Kentucky.
