Miami Foundation Gift to Help Uninsured Children in North Miami Beach

Miami Foundation Helps Underserved Children Through NSU College of Dental MedicineNSU’s College of Dental Medicine provides diagnostic, preventive, education, and treatment services to underserved and uninsured children in elementary, middle, and high schools primarily in the North Miami Beach Clinic’s catchment area through its Oral Health Service Program.

Those efforts received a recent boost thanks to a $25,000 gift made through The Miami Foundation.

NSU’s Division of Clinical Operations oversees the administration and oversight of the university's 20 different health care centers in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. NSU’s centers offer health care services to the community (some not available elsewhere), as well as community outreach programs in the form of free health care education and assessments for vision, medical, speech, and behavior health, physical and occupational therapy, and dental services. The services are coordinated by nationally recognized faculty within NSU’s 10 health care colleges and programs.

Last year, NSU centers recorded over 250,000 patient visits.
