The East Honolulu public health nurses recently marched in the 2015 Kaimuki Christmas parade and cheerfully gave out toothbrushes instead of candy. The toothbrushes were donated by the department’s Planning Office and Family Health Services Division Hawaii Smiles Project. The community appreciated the healthy gift and the reminder that dental health is a critical component to overall health. Our public health nurses continue to share DOH messages in the communities where we live, work, and play.
