A Word from More Health

MORE HEALTH welcomes everyone back for another great school year! We are excited about the many opportunities that 2013-2014 offers us to provide health and safety education to children, teens and adults.

Please mark your calendar for the first annual "Celebrate MORE HEALTH" Breakfast! After 24 years in the Tampa Bay area, we look forward to publicly sharing our many initiatives, and bragging just a bit about the positive presence MORE HEALTH has in our communities. Hope to see everyone at the event!

Celebrate MORE HEALTH Fundraising Breakfast

The January newsletter described our partnership with the Hillsborough County School District, Federally Qualified Health Centers and the Florida Department of Health in providing dental screenings at eight Hillsborough County elementary schools. Mobile clinic dentists performed dental examinations and applied sealants to the molars of second graders at each of the designated schools. The program was so successful that the Hillsborough County School Board has approved an additional eight schools for the program. Sixteen schools will now be served!

You may be surprised to find that the MORE HEALTH for You Dental kit is now available for consumer purchase online! In response to great demand, our curriculum team has been working diligently in creating this lesson kit, and we are sure that you will be pleased with it and other lesson offerings. We love the enthusiasm generated for the ability to purchase MORE HEALTH curricula and cannot wait to assist you in improving the health of children, teens and adults!
