HDA Foundation’s Mission is: To build healthier Hispanic communities, we connect partners and develop leaders who impact transformational strategies for education, scholarship and research.
The Hispanic Dental Association Foundation is committed to supporting students through the educational process by awarding grants and scholarships to individuals with strong support from corporate partners and individual donors.
