There are a number of resources available to assist you in your planning efforts.


The GKAS Program Planning Toolbox is an excellent resource for veterans, individual dentists or those who are new to the program. The guide includes a step-by-step timetable on how to plan an event, how to promote your event to the media and what legal issues may arise. The guide is divided into three sections to make accessing information easier.
