AMWA Attends Meeting Hosted by the Society for Women’s Health Research (SWHR) on Oral Health

On November 4, the Society for Women’s Health Research brought together a group of women from AMWA and the American Association of Women Dentists to assess the need for research into women’s oral health. Given the myriad of topics that are still incompletely understood – from the effects of pregnancy on oral health to the anticipated rise in oral malignancies from HPV infection – the group decided to move forward in seeking funding for an upcoming Round Table of experts. This Round Table will bring together experts to identify the most pressing healthcare issues for women related to oral health and to identify a public education plan. Past President Dr. Diane Helentjaris represented AMWA at this meeting.
