DentaQuest Joins It’s Time Texas Summit, Commits to Working for a Healthier Texas

DentaQuest is pleased to join It’s Time Texas as a sponsor of the Healthier Texas Summit on Oct. 17 and 18 at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center in Austin.

The conference, hosted by It’s Time Texas and The University of Texas System, is the only event in Texas that brings health professionals and champions from all sectors together in one place. Leaders at the Summit discuss cross-sector approaches to improving community and population health, innovations in health care delivery models, advancing health equity through policy and systemic change, effective health communication, and practical methods for sharing and using health data.

DentaQuest Regional Vice President Joe Vesowate will welcome dedicated health professionals and champions at the start of the Summit. “This is an important opportunity for all of us who care deeply about healthy communities across Texas to come together and help solve problems,” Vesowate said. “Many Texans lack access to oral health care, and that becomes a barrier to comprehensive health. Working across the state and across sectors isn’t easy, but it is what we need to do, and I believe it will result in less chronic disease and a better return on state health dollars.
