Recorded on July 29, 2020

The focus of this panel presentation is to learn from experts about speaking to audiences about community water fluoridation at public hearings, during grassroots campaigns, or at city council meetings. They are all leaders in their state when it comes to taking the best information and tailoring it to a local audience. Their expertise includes state fluoridation initiatives, local hearings, letter writing campaigns, and responding to difficult questions by those hesitant about this public health practice.
