Donate Blood at the Tufts Blood Drive!

WHEN: Friday, May 11th, 10 AM – 3 PM

WHERE: Sackler 114


Two-year-old Trenton “Trent” Simmons recently sustained life-threatening injuries after being bitten several times by a dog. He had several large lacerations to his trunk, a broken rib and a punctured kidney, which led to internal bleeding. He was transported by helicopter to a pediatric trauma center where he underwent a two-hour surgery to repair his kidney and suture the lacerations. To treat his blood loss, Trent received blood from an American Red Cross donor. His mom, Megan, recalled, “I had given blood several times in the past and never really gave it a second thought other than I knew I would be helping someone else. However, when it is your precious child laying there receiving blood to save his life, it puts it in a different perspective.”

Sign up today to make sure there is blood on the shelves for patients like Trent. Clickhere or visit and enter sponsor code TuftsUBos. All donors will be entered to win a $1,000 Home Depot gift card care of Suburban Propane!

USAF Luncheon

On Wednesday, September 13th there will be a U.S. Air Force Luncheon session providing information regarding AF scholarships and opportunities. The lunch will take place in the 7th floor Becker Boardroom.

Colonel Michael Cunningham will be coming straight from the Pentagon with one of our AF Tufts alumni, Dr. Yuehang Su (D16).
The Air Force provides amazing opportunities to enrich your experience as a dentist, as well as provide Health Professional Scholarships which you may be interested in as far as reducing your debt. One thing every new dental graduate is lacking is experience. The Air Force would give you the experience, be it in a GPR, AEGD or just practicing dentistry without being concerned about overhead, personnel support, insurances etc. You would be a much more viable candidate for a civilian position after practicing AF dentistry. Being an Air Force veteran himself (as an enlisted man, general dentist and endodontist), Dr. Charles Rankin can testify what a great opportunity the USAF has presented to him. So if you’re curious in what the Air Force may be able to offer you, please send an email to for any questions and to be put on the guest list for the luncheon.
