Thanks to a generous grant from Delta Dental of Minnesota, Hearts Beat Back will be conducting a study to understand how dental providers in Brown County are addressing sugar-sweetened beverage consumption and tobacco use among their patients. Given that dental providers often see patients every six months, dental practices are in a unique position to address these key health risks.

If you are a dental provider in Brown County and would like to participate or learn more, please contact Joy Hayes at 507-766-3875 or joy.hayes@allina.com
