Join the Alliance for Aging Research for a Congressional Briefing on Capitol Hill that addresses the impact of poor oral care on the vulnerable elderly. Experts in the field of aging and geriatric oral care will discuss the importance of oral health care in ensuring the overall well-being of older Americans and explore what can be done to improve delivery and access to care.
This briefing is the final in a three-part "Diseases in the Shadows III" series focusing on dangerous, yet elusive health conditions that afflict millions of older Americans.
