ATSU-ASHS’ OT students travel to Gila County to educate families

Students from A.T. Still University-Arizona School of Health Sciences’ (ATSU-ASHS) Occupational Therapy (OT) department recently partnered up with the Gila County Dental Public Health Department to provide oral healthcare education and occupational therapy resources to families in rural and underserved areas of Arizona.

Prior to traveling to Globe, Arizona, on Tuesday, May 7, and to Payson, Arizona, on Thursday, May 16, students were first tasked with creating a presentation on motor, sensory, and cognitive deficits, along with strategies for improving oral hygiene at home and at the dentist’s office. 

Students then presented to family members of children with disabilities and provided education, strategies, resources like adaptive equipment, and oral healthcare goody bags, which were provided by dental students at ATSU-Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health (ATSU-ASDOH).
