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
