Joke Alesh (D15), chosen to represent TUSDM, was one of a select group of Tufts student leaders who met with US Senator Elizabeth Warren on Monday September 15th. Shortly after the meeting, the Senator took to the stage to speak to a packed auditorium as part of the Tisch College Alan D. Solomon Lecture on Citizenship and Public Service series. Congratulations, Joke!

Welcome to Dental Central!

TUSDM’s new web-based portal in support of civic engagement and community service learning is launched! Visit About and find out how Dental Central came into being…Check out Student Organizations and see the depth and breadth of those doing community service work at TUSDM…Or go to Resources and see where to get toothbrushes and supplies for your next event and view the new PHCS online event documentation form — so much easier to use than the old paper forms!

But what's really cool is how easy it is to Be in the Know about where and how to get involved in community events. Interested in joining up with Smile Squad later this month at the Oak Street Fair? Or maybe hanging out with Sharewood Clinic in Malden on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month is more of your thing. Or maybe you're looking for something outside of the box, like networking with Vanessa Kirsch and Alan Khazei as part of a Tisch College-sponsored Social Impact Network event. Whatever you're looking for, Dental Central has it all over at the Volunteer Opportunities Page!
