CMAA staff had a blast at this year’s USAging conference in Austin!
In fact, our very own Ethan Belding (Vice President of Planning & Research) and Dr. Moses S. Dixon (President & CEO) presented about the Central Massachusetts Senior Dental Clinic. We are incredibly proud of this program and grateful for the community partnerships that have led to it being such a huge success!

RESOURCES & AWARENESS
Minority Mental Health Awareness Month
July is recognized as Minority Mental Health Awareness Month. As shared by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health “…racial and ethnic minorities often suffer from poor mental health outcomes due to the cultural stigma and lack of access to mental health care services.” These concerns are especially prevalent in older populations.
