Lunch and Learn: First 5 California Kit for New Parents and Partnering with Your Local First 5

October 20, 2022
12 PM - 1:30 PM (PT)
Webinar (ZOOM)

This Lunch & Learn session will focus on how staff from Local Oral Health Programs (LOHPs) can order and use the First 5 California (CA) Kit for New Parents ("Kit") to support parents who are pregnant or caring for children 0-5 with information about oral health and many other topics related to family and child wellness. The Kit includes plain language, evidence-based information on accessing Medi-Cal and Medi-Cal Dental and oral health during pregnancy and for children 0-5. The Kit also includes information on many other topics, including COVID-19, vaccinations, nutrition and food access, mental health, common early childhood diseases, early literacy, child care, child safety, community services, and many other topics. The Kit is available in English, Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, and Korean. It is free of charge, including shipping. The session will provide detailed information about the Kit components, relevance to LOHPs, and ordering information. We will discuss ideas about how LOHPs can distribute kits to parents/caregivers and incorporate the information in their program activities. We will also hear from San Joaquin LOHP about initiating and maintaining a relationship with your local First 5 organization with examples of other ways you can partner with them.
