It’s only January 27 and the world of dentistry is awash in good news.
From headline news in the LA Times about a smokeless tobacco ban at Dodger Stadium, and a Mouthing Off blog post about the American Student Dental Association’s February Wellness Challenge, to social media blasts about the Institute of Oral Health’s Inaugural In Motion: 5K Run, Walk, Fun, 2016 is a banner year thus far.
ORAL HEALTH HOME RUN
“It is our great hope that this leads to other cities, Major League Baseball and the great players we all admire to follow suit and do what is right for the health of the players, fans and the good of the game,” Council person Luis Huizar said after Tuesday’s vote.
Digital Content Coordinator Kerri Richardson at Mouthing Off offered firsthand feedback (recipes and helpful tips, too) after participating in one of the ASDA’s monthly wellness challenges #BeWellASDA:
“Eat only home cooked meals for seven days. I completed the challenge for this blog post and it was extremely difficult, but rewarding.”
According to asdanet.org, the challenges “ask you to change your behavior in a way that will positively affect your wellness … [and] target one (or more) of ASDA’s five dimensions of wellness: emotional, physical, intellectual, occupational and environmental.”
