Advocate of the month
Matt Crespin says "I advocate because it gives me the opportunity to take my knowledge and expertise in oral health and educate decision-makers, community organizations and others on issues I'm passionate about. My role as associate director at Children's Health Alliance of Wis provides me with the opportunity as a registered dental hygienist to use my oral health knowledge to make impactful system changes."
