In collaboration with Dr. Gluch at the Penn Dental Community Oral Health Division, the Levy Library of Dental Medicine is hosting the Health Literacy Study Club, where we will read and discuss foundational and emerging research and best practices about health literacy and patient education.
Hind Aljarahi (MPH) is a third-year dental student at Penn Dental Medicine. She will facilitate a virtual discussion exploring barriers and facilitators to dental care access and its broader implications for the well-being of displaced populations; RSVP is required for this meeting.
