Health Literacy Month Weekly Contest @ 7th Floor Bulletin Board
Oct 2 – Oct 28 all-day

Want a chance to win a $15 Amazon gift card? Enter the Health Literacy Month Weekly Contest on the bulletin board outside the 7th floor student lounge. Each week, we will post a word or phrase that is used in the practice of dentistry. Your challenge is to rewrite the phrase in plain language so that it is easy for a patient or non-dentist to understand. Write your answers on the front of an index card, put your name and email on the back, and then tack it to the bulletin board. One winner will be chosen at random every week in October!

BYOB - Bring Your Own Blanket @ Boston Public Garden

This Wednesday October 25th join ASDA in the wellness event BYOB: Bring Your Own Blanket. This is going to be a great event to get out of the building and enjoy the beautiful nature that surrounds us in the Boston area! Nature can provide restorative effects such as reducing stress which can boost your overall immunity as well. With the colder months coming, this is a great opportunity to get outside and bring a home-packed dinner (or takeout), sit on a picnic blanket with friends, and watch the sun go down. We are going to walk over to the Public Gardens from the dental school, meeting in the lobby at 5:15pm. Please email evanthia.vranas@tufts.edu or nicole.trone@tufts.edu if you plan on attending. We hope to see you at the picnic!
