The Klamath Basin Oral Health Coalition (KBOHC) began as the Klamath County Oral Health Coalition – but soon decided that the needs of the region were greater than just the county, and changed the name to reflect its broader reach.
Community leaders came together from a variety of organizations and sectors to identify the gap(s) in oral/dental health in the area, and based on the strong collaborative working relationships already in place in the Klamath Basin area, swiftly moved to aligning the efforts and resources that led to the development of one of our state’s strongest local coalitions.
Four champions stand out --- whose passion and dedication have guided the rapid growth and successful implementation of work in the area of oral/dental advocacy. Their leadership, expertise and hard work has enabled the coalition to implement programs, health fairs, service days, internships and VISTA placements and more. Shout Out of thanks to these folks and the many members from a wide spectrum of organizations that comprise the Klamath Basin Oral Health Coalition.
