The speakers at the event included expert trainers:
- Matt Jacobs, Children’s Dental Health Project, Washington DC
- Peter Mitchell, Salter Mitchell, Alexandria, VA
- Jodie Silverman, Health Resources in Action, Boston, MA
- Dr. John Fisher, Mass Dental Society, Salem, MA
Attendees learnt how to sort through the claims and counter-claims around community water fluoridation; how to communicate science and community objectives in today’s media environment; and how to locate and utilize credible resources to explain what the evidence shows about community water fluoridation.
