Forget the at-home movie nights and cramped-couch sitting this summer (Netflix will still be there when you get home). Switch up your film-viewing experience by taking your family out to one of these free movie screenings in Boston. It’s a chance to sprawl out on the grass, pack some movie munchies (and maybe a can or two of bug spray) and hopefully get some giggles in. Here’s where you can watch free movies, in the great outdoors, all summer long!

The Zambia Project: 

In 2018, the longstanding TUSDM Zambian oral health outreach project (founded in 2006) was developed as the focus of a GSL course which requires a three-week country immersion as well as extensive project preparation and post field experience reflection and assessment. Lessons learned from this comprehensive project guide the refinement of the other five GSL projects. This project in rural Zambia is a collaboration of a local community, the Dental Training School of the Zambian Ministry of Health and TUSDM strategically utilizing existing health care infrastructure and incorporating community-oriented cost-effective oral health prevention. The program includes four components of oral health promotion—oral health education, emergency care for infection and pain, fluoride exposure and atraumatic restorative treatment (ART). Annual visits by TUSDM in collaboration with Zambian interdisciplinary oral health and medical teams provide exams, fluoride treatments, toothbrushes/toothpaste, extractions and tooth restoration. Since inception of the Zambian effort, local Zambian community oral health volunteers, trained and coordinated through the local rural health center, provide essential support for the program including on-going oral health education, identification of community dental needs and assistance for visiting teams.
