2 The Global Children’s Oral Health and Nutrition Program: Students Learn by Doing Good

Every year, since 2010, Dr. Karen Sokal-Gutierrez, Dr. Susan Ivey, and a group of students have taken toothbrushes, toothpaste, and a big pink and white model of teeth to Central America, South America, and Asia. There, they teach communities about oral health. The Global Children’s Oral health and Nutrition Program was created to stem the epidemic rise in tooth decay in developing countries around the world. Sokal-Gutierrez, who more commonly goes by Dr. Karen, is an associate clinical professor, and Dr. Ivey is an associate adjunct professor. Both work with the UC Berkeley-UCSF Joint Medical Program.
