March 29, 2019, Santa Cruz, California – Continuing her life-long dedication to children’s oral health, Sister Julie Hyer, OP, delivered a $25,000 check on behalf of the Lifeguard Charitable Fund to help a local clinic, Salud Para La Gente, to provide toothbrushes, toothpaste, and dental floss to families of young children. Sister Julie lived out her dedication through years of ministry in health care as President and CEO of Dominican Hospital in Santa Cruz for more than 22 years and as CEO of Salud Para La Gente for two and a half years. This recent project is a continuation of her childhood efforts to collect donations of toothpaste for needy children. Read the entire article by Michael Oppenheimer in the Capitola Soquel Times.
