#TrumpCare would be devastating for #RuralHealth. I’m going to keep fighting to ensure that New Mexicans in rural communities can access the health coverage that can be the difference between life and death.

Marna Schwartz HMS ’00 is a pediatrician in Juneau, Alaska. Almost every week, Schwartz hops into a small plane to visit patients in Alaska Native and non-native communities. Only two of the seven communities that she regularly visits have family practice doctors. Like Schwartz, doctors across the United States are working to fill gaps in health care that challenge rural residents. #HarvardMed #ruralhealth

Parents of children with a mental, behavioral, or developmental disorder living in rural areas report more personal and neighborhood challenges. What can be done? Read about the problem, and talk to your healthcare provider or local health department to discuss solutions. #ruralhealth #CDC #PublicHealth bit.ly/RuralHealthMMWR

In my meeting with members of the #NorthDakota Hospital Association, we discussed #ruralhealth issues and efforts to improve access to affordable care.

Our quality department had the opportunity to host three first year medical students from @westernu_comp who are part of the rural health tract and are aspiring to be rural health physicians some day. They were able to go behind the scenes and learn about all that goes into providing a quality customer experience. The future of healthcare is in good hands!

How do we define community health? We believe a healthy community is a thriving community — and that means health for everyone, in every sector — where we live, learn, eat, work, and play. •

Although not usually a part of any volunteer dental program, we have spent a lot of time this week discussing fissure sealants.
It's become apparent through the screening we've done this week that almost all of the cavities we are seeing start on the occlusal surface of the molars.
Those with shallow pits and fissures present with almost always zero decay, but those with deep grooves have a high rate of decay.
We are looking at how we can develop a way to include fissure sealants in our school programs to significantly reduce the amount of decay we see in those children in the future.
Prevention is always our focus!

Getting out into the more remote areas yesterday was definitely the highlight of our trip!
The lush, green villages are filled with smiling faces and big waves hello.
It's become apparent to us that delivering dental services to this region is a lot more complex than just helping to improve the services at a few key clinics.
Many people cannot afford dental services and there is only one semi-functioning free clinic for them to access. Many also cannot afford the cost of transport to get to and from that one clinic.
The solution lies in establishing a mobile dental unit that can service even the most remote villages.
Being able to bring the services to the people means that even those who are the poorest and living in the most remote areas will avail of much needed dental services.
Working with our motivated and passionate local team we hope to see this vision become a reality!

Yesterday we visited this school in Bubikhulu to asses the oral health situation.
We found that almost 100% of children didn't have a toothbrush and were unable to brush their teeth.
This is the second school we aim to team up with and implement a toothbrushing program in.
Set atop a hill in a beautiful village in the jungle, we are so excited to be able to work with the teachers and children there to improve their oral health knowledge and practices!

Headed out to Bududa and some surrounding villages today to get an idea of how large the dental needs in the region really are.
It was great to explore some areas that are even more rural than where we are stationed now.
We are starting to get the full picture of how we can best assist to improve the oral health of this region in rural Uganda.
Keep following for ways that you can get involved!
