Indiana receives grant for oral health study
The Oral Health Program (OHP) at the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) recently announced its plans to conduct a statewide survey during 2012 and 2013 to determine the oral health status of third graders in Indiana.
The Division of Nutrition and Physical Activity will team with the OHP to concurrently obtain height, weight and body mass index measurements on the participating third graders. This survey is made possible with dedicated funding of $100,000 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Preventive Health and Health Services Block Grant and an obesity prevention grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The information obtained from this statewide survey will help guide and direct public health efforts and programs within Indiana pertaining to the oral health and nutrition and physical activity of children.
