Topic: Health Awareness Campaigns

Graham Media Group’s WJXT Jacksonville, Fla. partnered with the Florida Dental Association on a free clinic that provided over 5,000 dental procedures to 2,900 patients on April 22 – 23. The services, valued at $2.7 million, included fillings, examinations, extractions, root canal therapy, children’s care and cleanings. People began to line up two days prior to the event. "The ability of WJXT to get the word out and reach the dentally underserved was absolutely astonishing as witnessed by the tremendous turnout of dental patients on both days," said Dr. Roger Robinson, an event organizer.
