Medical and Dental Needs Task Force

 "United, there is little we cannot do." --President John Kennedy 

This task force has not yet been activated.
Why a Medical and Dental Needs Task Force?

One out of every six people in the United States has no health coverage, and almost one out of every three is without coverage at some time during any year. Some residents in our community have no medical or dental coverage. Some cannot afford the medical or dental care they need. And Medicaid benefits are ending. We need to learn what the unmet medical and dental needs in our community are and find ways to meet these needs. The Medical and Dental Needs Task Force, launched in October 1998, hopes to accomplish these goals . 

Who will be the Members of the Medical and Dental Needs Task Force?

Residents of our community, and other concerned individuals, both from within the medical and dental professions, and from outside of them. Every member of the Task Force, like everyone else who makes Burke CARES programs work, is a volunteer. 

How Do I Learn More About the Medical and Dental Needs Task Force?

For more information, or to learn how to join the Medical and Dental Needs Task Force, please call Burke CARES at 703-425-0423, and we will put you in touch with the Coordinator of the Medical and Dental Needs Task Force.
