Project Healthy Child

I am a senior at Cardinal Newman High School and with the help of my mentor, Dr. Leslie Jue, I organized a free dental clinic for uninsured children between the ages of 3 and 18 living in Sonoma County. The clinic was held on Sunday, January 25, 2015 in the Race Science Building at the Santa Rosa Junior College. With the help of six dentists, five hygienists, and six volunteers, we provided care for 24 children, totaling over $10,000 of free dental care given away. The clinic was the main event of my Community Based Service Learning mission, Project Healthy Child. Without the volunteers, my mentor, the Santa Rosa Junior College, and Dr. Ezbon Jen and Pam Rosell for supervising, I would not have been able to meet my goal of having the clinic. Additionally, I greatly appreciate and thank the Henry Schein Cares Foundation for donating a majority of the dental supplies needed to able to treat the children. Thank you everyone so much for all support!! Cantlen Forni Project Healthy Child
