The Office of Global and Community Health is responsible for developing, promoting, and sustaining initiatives in oral public health domestically and around the globe. As the home of the HSDM Global Oral Health Initiative, the Office is working with HSDM faculty and students to refine the School’s vision for global health and to coordinate its many outreach programs and curricular offerings. Such efforts include working with faculty to incorporate global health into the curriculum at the pre- and postdoctoral levels, to increase externship and research opportunities, and to integrate oral health into the Harvard University Initiative on Global Health. The Office also liaises with other schools at Harvard, health care providers, charitable organizations, and government agencies to raise awareness of oral health issues and to establish collaborative partnerships.
