This course is an in-depth look at the difference between “static,” time-bound programs and broader movements for systemic change through policy — and how funders and oral health advocates can promote sustainable reform through the latter. The section will include a discussion of the typical grantmaker’s portfolio and how a shift in focus toward systems-level policy reform can increase ROI and reduce grantees’ long-term reliance on outside funding.
