In addition, each child was read to and given a new book as part of the physician assistant’s health literacy program.
Physician assistant students, dressed as oral health elves, met with children and parents to give guidance and counseling on brushing, flossing and general oral health
care. They also passed out oral health kits with toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss and educational material. This was the sixth year the physician assistant students at Quinnipiac have organized the toy drive.
