Chicago Dentist and COE Partner to Assist Veterans

Military veterans enrolled in Roosevelt University’s Veterans Upward Bound Program gathered to thank Manus Health Systems for providing free dental care to selected veterans at a reception that was held on Thursday, Feb. 20, in Room 700 of the Gage Building.  The Veterans Upward Bound Program is a part of the College of Education’s Office of Community Outreach, and the partnership to provide free dental care was developed by Dr. Robin Gay of Manus Health Systems and Dr. Holly Stadler, the former dean of the College of Education.

The event and especially partnership have garnered quite a bit of attention.  Click on the links below to obtain more information:
