Wellness Wednesday: Zika, Dental Therapy, and Columbus Public Health Farmers Market
As Zika continues to spread, public health officials are discovering new ways the virus can be transmitted. Also, over 40 million Americans reside in areas with limited access to dentists. Some are hoping to make dental therapy legal in Ohio to help improve dental health in these communities. And, Columbus Public Health is teaming up with local farmers to create farmer's markets, where fresh produce will be available to a greater number of Columbus' neighborhoods.
