We look forward to continuing to work together to make sure the children stay compliant with oral health. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our new Haitian friends for  their generous hospitality and an unforgettable experience.

Course Description: In the summer of 2010 a team of 9 health care professionals from Northern Virginia Community College visited Ghana, Africa on a Global Community Outreach Project. The Ghana team had to participate in an International Studies Class that culminated in a 2 week trip in Ghana. This presentation will explain how this project took place, what was required to participate, what the team learned from this project, what dental services were delivered in Ghana by the dental team and what the experience was like for the team.
