BUILDING CONNECTIONS FOR COMMUNITY HEALTH
Time for Change in Thurston County
Community Partners Braiding Resources and Strategies to Improve Health
In 2018, oral health advocates in Thurston County joined together to creat a Local Impact Network (LIN). This approach ensures solutions reflect local needs and values. By addressing the factors that influence oral health including disease prevention, access to dental care, and healthy behaviors, the goal is to make measurable progress toward reducing oral health disparities. This is being measured through an evaluation developed in partnership with Thurston County Public Health and Social Services.
