The U.S. Virgin Islands is located in the eastern Caribbean, just 1,100 miles southeast of Miami. The average temperature ranges from 77°F in the winter to 83°F in the summer. NYU Lutheran Dental Medicine’s health partner—Frederiksted Health Care, Inc.—is located on the West end of the largest island, St. Croix, which attracts vacationers seeking a tranquil tropical destination offering both a picturesque setting and unique history. Outside of resort areas, poverty is rampant on the island of St. Croix with a very high percentage of children and unwed teenage mothers living in poverty. NYU Lutheran Dental Medicine and its health center partner help to ensure equitable and affordable dental care while enhancing and honing the skills of postdoctoral dental practitioners.
