Barbados: SECONDARY STUDENTS TO GET HIGH QUALITY ORAL HEALTH CARE

Minister of Health and Wellness, Lieutenant Colonel Jeffrey Bostic stressed the above, whilst delivering remarks at the launch and handover of equipment for the Massy/Ministry of Health and Wellness Dental Health Promotion Project for Secondary School Students, which took place in the conference room of the Frank Walcott Building yesterday.
