Host a NEVI Tour Stop

The Hu-Friedy mascot NEVI will begin a cross-Canada tour to help promote the scholarship program. NEVI will be available for travel between May and October.

Would you like to become a host? Individual members organizing provincial/regional dental hygiene events or those working in clinics, schools or any suitable venue may apply to host NEVI. It makes for a fantastic awareness event by promoting our oral health message – plus it’s a great photo opportunity!

Please contact Melanie Martin to make arrangements.
