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

The Hispanic International Mission [HIM] wants to spread our message of hope and compassion. We believe that a single action can make a difference in the community and that collective action can significantly impact the world.

In the mid of the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty of returning to “normal,” children and families have to participate in virtual learning. Consequently, hundreds of thousands of children from low-income families deal with closed schools’ hidden consequence — no access to dental care. School-based oral health programs have become a meaningful way to connect students from low-income families with oral health care and education. To help resolve this impairment, we create resources to bridge health care and education for children.

The online oral health resources are intended to assist your program in delivering oral health care education remotely. These resources can also be shared with school administrators and faculty. We also will provide free oral health supplies and instructional materials in English and Spanish for our former public school partners.
