Public Health Council Meets Next Wednesday

January 7, 2010

DPH’s Public Health Council will be having their first monthly meeting of the New Year on Wednesday, January 13th, starting at 9:00 AM.

There are two important items on the docket (pdf). First, Commissioner Auerbach will present this year’s Betsy Lehman Award for Patient Safety.

Second, there will be a presentation on oral health in Massachusetts by the DentaQuest Foundation’s Ralph Fuccillo. Oral health is an essential part of overall health, and an essential part of the health reform conversation after threats to adult dental benefits for MassHealth members in the FY10 budget.
