Lessons in a Lunch Box

April 16, 2017, 12:00 am

The national program,  Lessons In A Lunch Box, has  taken place on March 14, 2017 at Westwoods Elementary School in Traverse City, Michigan. 290 students, grades 1-3 where excited to hear stories and play games which encouraged them to make good choices.  Four students from the Northern Michigan College dental assisting program presented the program, along with Dr. Jessica A. Rickert.

The Lessons In A Lunch Box: Healthy Teeth Essentials & Facts About Snacks program was developed by The Children's Oral Health Institute, a nonprofit organization based in Maryland. The program was created to help children to begin learning early, throughout grade school, about taking care of their teeth, eating healthy and considering career options in dental medicine.

The Michigan Dental Association was a sponsor of this event in Northern Michigan, spearheaded by Dr. Jessica Rickert. MDA Members are encouraged to present this excellent program at their local schools.  For more information, visit the website:
