This past November 18th, members from Hispanic Dental Association had the opportunity to participate in the Health Education Fair, Latinos for Waltham.  The students provided oral health instructions to the participants and tips on how to maintain a healthy mouth. At the event 20 families in need from the Waltham community participated and were gifted Turkeys and other foods for the Thanksgiving festivities. Throughout the event the community members also had the opportunity to speak to an Immigration lawyer and a financial specialist to seek help and have their questions addressed. On behalf of the HDA Community Service Representatives we would like to give a special thanks to Christian Mendoza (D20) and Janelle Diaz (D20) for participating and making this event successful.

El reto para esta semana es practicar nuestro español!

Miren lo que los miembros de HDA hicieron el pasado Noviembre!

El pasado 18 de Noviembre, miembros de la organización de Hispanic Dental Association tuvieron la oportunidad de asistir en la Feria de Salud y Educación para Latinos for Waltham.  En el evento los estudiantes que participaron ofrecieron instrucciones de como mantener una boca saludable. En el evento participaron 20 familias necesitadas de la comunidad de Waltham y se les otorgo pavos y alimentos para las festividades de el Día De Acción de Gracias. Entre las actividades los miembros de la comunidad también pudieron hablar con un abogado de Inmigración, y una especialista financiera para ayudar a las personas y contestar sus preguntas. De parte de los Representantes de la Comunidad de Servicios de HDA le queremos dar las gracias en especial a Christian Mendoza (D20) y a Janelle Diaz (D20) por participar en este evento y hacerlo un éxito.
