Prince George’s County Public Schools CEO Dr. Monica Goldson, Prince George’s County Executive Angela D. Alsobrooks, former NFL player Brandon Coleman and CF Charities Founder/CEO Dr. Larry Caplin announced a new partnership to provide free mobile dental and vision services for students. 

Starting in January, PGCPS students will be able to access the services at schools or in mobile units. Vision services will be provided to all schools and include screenings, follow-up services with an optometrist or ophthalmologist and free glasses as needed. Dental care will be available at 101 schools and include routine treatment.
