What is your research project?

Creating Smiles, Changing Lives:  Telling the Malta Dental Clinic Story

What are the goals of your research project?

To increase awareness for the Malta Clinic through interviews with patients and volunteers.

Why is this research important?

The Malta Clinic is a wonderful resource for the uninsured but we are very bad at telling our story. There needs to be better visabilty for our media presense with stories from out patients.

What drives you to conduct this research?

The need to tell the story for more grant funding.

Is there a Call to Action you would like to encourage?

If anyone would like to volunteer as a pre-professional they are invited.
