    San Jose Promotes Strong & Healthy Neighborhoods

    San Jose’s Healthy Neighborhoods Venture Fund (HNVF) affirms the City Council’s commitment to the health and welfare of San Jose’s residents. As you may recall, the City will receive an estimated $10-million a year over the next 25 years as part of the national settlement with tobacco companies. San Jose is one of only four cities in California to receive tobacco settlement money. It has been the City’s goal to use this money to enhance our residents’ health and education.

    To ensure that the HNVF money was put to the best possible use, we solicited input from the community. The feedback from our residents helped establish the guidelines for appropriating these funds. With your help, we identified three areas of need: Anti-Tobacco, Senior Services/Health, and Education/Health. The City sought to offer funding to programs that would help decrease the use of tobacco, improve the quality of life for seniors, promote academic success through innovative educational activities, and address the unmet health care needs of our children. read more.....

    Agency aims to boost dental care for kids

    By Ben Winograd

    One-third of Santa Clara County children younger than 9 suffer from untreated tooth decay, and minority and poor children suffer the most, according to a study released today that focuses on the lack of access to care.
    The study "for the first time quantifies the need out there and puts a face on the extent of the problem'' at the county level, said Dr. David Lees, who directed the research, sponsored by the non-profit Health Trust, an agency aimed at improving access to health services to the under-served in Silicon Valley.
    More than a matter of simple hygiene, the study suggests, dental problems can affect students' performance at school. read more.....

    Healthy teeth for all
    By Candice Shih

    Nobody likes going to the dentist, but what if the dentist came to you? On Thursday, April 4, 13 students at Castro School received a visit from the Tooth Mobile. Well-traveled like the Tooth Fairy, the Tooth Mobile provides dental care _ rather than cash _ to the teeth that need it. A screening last month determined that 47 Castro students need immediate dental care. Students who need less urgent care in the next 60 days totaled 79. "The barriers (to dental care) are transportation and language," said Maureen Wadiak, Associate Director of the Community Services Agency, which sponsored last week's event. read more.....
