What is the Mid-Maryland Mission of Mercy (MOM) &Health Equity Festival?
The 2014 Mid-MD MOM & Health Equity Festival was held September 5-6 at UMD’s Xfinity Center.
The event was a collaborative effort by the dental and health care community, Catholic Charities of Washington and the University of Maryland Center for Health Equity to provide free emergency dental care to the poor and underserved.
In addition to providing a number of free dental services to adult patients in need, the group sought to enhance the overall health of this population by creating a c
aring environment for health screening, education and referral services.
Dental services were provided by licensed dentists and hygienists, and included cleaning, endontics/root canals, restorative fillings, and extractions.
Exhibitors provided additional free health services including cholesterol checks, flu shots, eye examinations, HIV rapid tests and educational one-on-one talks with attorneys, nutritionists and counselors.
