Head 2 Toe
Each year, the Alliance of the American Dental Association (AADA) coordinates the Head 2 Toe Project which supports a local organization in need. The project is held in conjunction with the ADA World Conference, and this year in collaboration with the ADA Foundation. This year AADA will be supporting The Suitcase Clinic. The mission of the Suitcase Clinic is to promote the health and overall well-being of low-income and homeless populations through service provision, cooperative learning, and collective action among community and professional volunteers, students, and participants. The Suitcase Clinic supports three drop-in centers that offer a variety of services. To learn more about this clinic, visit https://www.suitcaseclinic.org/.
