            This report evaluates the design, implementation, and results of three small preventive health education demonstration grants awarded to community health centers. The study reviewed the Pike Market Medical Clinic Nutrition Intervention Program in Seattle, Washington; the Adolescent Periodontal Disease Prevention Program, a Colorado migrant health program; and "Great to Wait," the adolescent pregnancy prevention program operated by Health Care Partners of South Carolina. The latter program was based on the adolescent abstinence training program "Postponing Sexual Involvement," developed by Dr. Marion Howard at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, with additional information from "True Love Waits." The "Great to Wait" program targeted adolescents ages 11–14 in rural communities with a large African-American population. The report includes information on the design of each program, its organization and implementation, the outcomes, and the evaluation process. The report also includes examples of the training materials and evaluation instruments.

              This final report reviews and summarizes a community-based, culturally sensitive oral health project in Canim Lake, British Columbia. The project aimed to promote quality infant feeding and prevent early childhood caries in the Canim Lake Band, a Shuswap community of 500 members belonging to the First Nations group. The report summarizes the project and reviews the demonstration components (methodology, problems encountered, timetables), evaluation components (process, impact, and outcome), and project outcomes. Two of the projects implemented—a cradle loan project and construction of a smokehouse—were related to historical Shuswap traditions for comforting fussy babies. Appendices include a sample questionnaire and an evaluation form.

                  This report provides an overview of the Dental Sealant and Education Initiative proposed by the Children's Dental Center. The proposed initiative involves a highly collaborative and multifaceted effort to reduce the incidence of preventable dental disease in low-income school-age children in Southern California. The initiative would use proven technology to reduce tooth decay and would model cost-effectiveness by using a community-based mechanism for delivering the technology. The report addresses the initiative's goals, principles, and factors that would contribute to its success. An implementation schedule is included.
