The DentaQuest Foundation has allocated $150,000 to several University of Alabama at Birmingham schools for a project that will in part involve conducting free, school-based, health screenings for children in select Birmingham city schools, the university announced today.

The project, called “Smiles for Alabama,” unites “students from each of the UAB professional schools with Sight Savers America’s Alabama KidCheck to screen children for health, dental or eyesight, and it identifies those who need follow-up care,” a UAB news release said.
