Catherine A. – Creating a Community of Smiles
Catherine is from Sarasota County and attends Pine View School.
Learning that the homeless often do not receive adequate dental hygiene, Catherine took action. She forged a partnership between LECOM School of Dental Medicine and the Salvation Army. Catherine’s team assembled and distributed 1,500 dental kits and she’s arranged diagnostic and educational services to be continually provided by LECOM students through Salvation Army’s Hope Crisis Center. Now that’s something to smile about!
“All you need is the inspiration, motivation, and a little persistence. I discovered my community is full of wonderful people who are more than willing to help.”
