Teaching Oral Hygiene to Rural Guatemalan Families

December 19, 2013

Determined to fight one of the most preventable diseases among children–dental caries (cavities)–California State University, Northridge professor Terri Lisagor led a team of students in November to rural Guatemala to teach families there about nutrition and oral hygiene and to be a part of a team that provides basic dental services. Lisagor, acting chair of CSUN’s Department of Family and Consumer Sciences, and three of her students, spent two weeks traveling along Guatemala’s Rio Dulce river, as part of an international effort to improve the health of the region’s residents. See the video and read more in CSUN Today.
