Statewide Executive Committee (SEC) Meeting

Please join us a the next SEC meeting!

The Statewide Executive Committee (SEC) includes representatives from the Tribes of Arizona and other American Indian entities. As the statewide Tribal Oral Health Coalition, the SEC convenes quarterly to discuss and address oral health issues and serve as the advisory board for AAIOHI. They also implement projects aimed at improving the state of oral health for their respective Tribe and organization.

AAIOHI serves as a technical support system to the SEC and their local tribal coalitions by providing training, education, and assistance in the areas of coalition development, capacity building, oral health literacy and other areas aimed at improving oral health.

Our next SEC is scheduled for Thursday July 21, 2016, from 8:30-4:30 p.m. at the Arizona Dental Association, 3193 N Drinkwater Blvd, Scottsdale, AZ 85251. 

If you interested in presenting please contact Herminia Frias at 602-542-5725 or email; and she will do her best to include you on the agenda. You are also welcome to attend the meeting and meet the SEC and the AAIOHI team.
