NEW Water Bottle Filling Station

Our first water bottle filling station was installed on the 7th floor.
A NEW second water bottle filling station has now been installed in the School, on the 8th floor, thanks to a grant from the University!

Both stations are located at the drinking fountains.
If you are on the 15th floor you may also fill your water bottle at the filtered water unit in the kitchen.

 

These filling stations count the number of plastic water bottles that are not used every time you refill a water bottle.
Thank you for doing your part to meet the School’s and the University’s sustainability goals!

FIVE TUSDM STUDENTS HEAD TO ZAMBIA FOR COMMUNITY SERVICE

This July, the Tisch Summer Fellows Program in collaboration with TUSDM will support five Tufts Dental Students on an exciting service learning project to support oral health service delivery and infrastructure in Zambia, Africa. The student team includes D19s: Jessaca York and Syed Hussain; D20s: Amani Sarao, Charles James and Zach Golub.

The program under the direction of Dr. John Morgan, Department of Public Health and Community Service (and with additional support from Nancy Marks, Tisch/TUSDM Community Service Coordinator), will provide students the opportunity to work in conjunction with the Zambian Ministry of Health, The Dental Training School in Lusaka, and the Namwala District Hospital, and local health providers to assist in the provision dental care and explore methods of oral health sustainability for rural and vulnerable populations in selected rural sites. Any donations raised by the Tufts Team will directly benefit the project and will be used towards supporting oral health for people in Zambia that are in desperate need of oral care. For more information on how you can help them reach their crowdfunding goals, please email Amanjot Sarao or Charles James

Building student involvement, fostering civic engagement and enhancing community service to advance public health.
