Building student involvement, fostering civic engagement and enhancing community service to advance public health. 

Last Sunday, AAPD volunteers provided oral health care information to kids through brushing tutorials and games at the August Moon Festival right here in Chinatown! It was an awesome day teaching and giving out toothbrushes with volunteers Dallas Huff, Sameha Abdulbaki, Yan Lin, Amanda Carlos, David Martin, Lara Adamilka, Maggie Wu, Lauren Lubowitz, and Adi Smith.

Yan Lin (D23) reflects “I am hopeful that our initiative in making teeth brushing a fun and exciting activity for kids at an early age will further encourage them to build a healthy oral hygiene habit that they will carry with them for a very long time!” and Dallas Huff (D23) adds “I really enjoyed interacting with our local community and helping children learn a little bit more about their oral hygiene!”
