Saint-Petersburg, Russia: WOHD by HCCM Russia

Being a member of International Association of Dental Students, HCCM keeps in touch with dental faculties of many universities all over Russia and helps to organize different dental events.

Due to recent news about coronavirus infection, we had to cancel some of our WOHD activities, especially the ones at public places. However during WOHD were going to fully compensate it with our media events.

We are going to have media action with posters “I pledge to…” with our own sentences, which we’ll spread in Instagram, Facebook and vk.com. Also starting from March 20 our local coordinators will be spreading official WOHD posters, making educational posts and using frame from WOHD website for profile photos.

 

In addition to HCCM media action Ural State Medical University going to film funny videos about Oral Health and WOHD in Tik Tok. If the quarantine in Russia doesn’t last longer than 2-3 weeks they will discuss with university officials if they can make following events as well:

1. Quest - game and performance for children at the Health School – “Search of a healthy smile with a tooth fairy”

3. The performance in the children's TB dispensary - a brushing teeth master class, dental quiz and dolls

4. WOHD`s action in the shopping center

5. “Oral health is a mirror of the whole body” – action in the school with a cartoon, quiz and a dental game
