The Illinois Children's Healthcare Foundation and the Delta Dental of Illinois Foundation are hosting a series of Listening Sessions on oral health in communities across Illinois. The Listening Sessions will be facilitated by the Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law.

The Illinois Children’s Health Care Foundation, the Delta Dental of Illinois Foundation, and the Michael Reese Health Trust issued the Oral Health Illinois Report in October 2016. Now it is time to convene to discuss next steps.
