Oral health is the number one unmet healthcare need for individuals with intellectual disabilities and developmental disabilities. The Every Smile Matters Nevada Project https://lnkd.in/eS3qaRuB, is working to change that, and we need your help.
The project is funded by American Rescue Plan Act funding, in partnership with Nevada Medicaid, Aging and Disabilities Division, and the Nevada Oral Health Program, and need individuals and their caregivers to complete surveys (and interviews if the would like to do an interview) that will inform a Nevada Oral Health Needs for Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (ID/DD).
The purpose of the survey is to identify the barriers to accessing oral health care and maintaining good oral health that our population faces so that we can advocate for better for our community members with ID/DD. The survey can be found here: https://lnkd.in/eNjKS-zW and will only take about 7 minutes to complete.
All surveys are anonymous and identifying information will not be tracked or shared, only used to inform future initiatives to address unmet needs of people with disabilities across Nevada.
