Hinsdale Residents Beth and Adam Waldo Receive Visionary Supporter of Oral Health Award from Erie Family Health Center
On behalf of Erie Family Health Center, Dr. Lee Francis, Erie’s President and CEO and Dr. Ghassan Souri, Vice President of Oral Health Services awarded Beth and Adam Waldo with the Visionary Supporter of Oral Health Award at the grand opening of Erie Dental Health Center-Humboldt Park on March 6, 2008. Beth Waldo was present to accept the award on her and her husband’s behalf.
Beth and Adam Waldo have been long-time supporters of Erie Family Health Center’s commitment to providing quality health care, regardless of one’s ability to pay. In fall 2000, as a Junior League volunteer, Beth helped Erie’s Executive Leadership Team develop its strategic plan — a plan that led to the building of Erie’s first dental center in Albany Park. Since that time, the Waldo’s have provided loyal support for the organization, which includes being Erie’s first oral health major donor.
The new facility is located on the second floor of Erie Humboldt Park Health Center, combining the oral health home with the medical home; it consists of a five chair, state-of-the-art dental suite devoted to serving low-income pregnant women and children. Within its first year, the dental center expects to provide over 1,200 patients with quality oral health services
As parents of two small children, the Waldos recognize the importance of addressing oral health at a young age. Many disadvantaged children miss school and suffer due to untreated cavities or gum infection. Beth and Adam Waldo are confident that Erie’s oral health program will address the oral health needs of the community’s women and children with quality care, for which Erie is known.
