March 12, 2015 – The Hispanic Dental Association (HDA) is pleased to announce the launch of a key strategic collaboration with Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual). The yearlong partnership will allow the HDA to further its mission of providing service, education, advocacy, and leadership intended to eliminate oral health disparities in the Hispanic community. At the same time, this collaboration will allow MassMutual to help raise financial acumen among dental professionals as well as the Hispanic community.
“This collaboration brings key support to dentists and members of the Oral Health Team across the country,” noted David Pena, Jr, Executive Director, Hispanic Dental Association. “We are confident that our partnership with MassMutual will bring valuable information and services to our Members and the Hispanic community across the country.”
As part of this collaboration, MassMutual will provide much-needed support to HDA chapters across the country including Houston, San Antonio, Northern Texas, Los Angeles and Chicago. The strategic collaboration will provide support in the form of financial education via seminars, scholarships for oral care students, recruitment at the professional and student levels via networking events, and community engagement via oral care screenings.
“We are proud to collaborate with the HDA to help Hispanic dental professionals obtain the resources needed to succeed at the personal and professional levels,” said Dr. Chris Mendoza, Vice President, Multicultural Market Development. “At MassMutual, we care about improving the financial literacy of our communities and this collaboration does just that. It not only helps educate Hispanic professionals about finances but also brings much needed oral care support to local Hispanic communities.”
MassMutual’s collaboration with the HDA is part of the company’s ongoing commitment to empower Hispanic consumers by helping them take positive steps toward financial security for themselves and their families. For more information about the MassMutual please visit http://www.massmutual.com.
