EWU Dental Hygiene to Reach More Vulnerable Patients

Professor Merri Jones RDH, MSDH received a $6,500 grant from MultiCare’s Community Partnership Grants for 2019. This money will allow more resources for dental hygiene students working with five target populations in the community. We are proud of Professor Jones’ commitment to the community and modeling community engagement to the senior dental hygiene students.
