Building student involvement, fostering civic engagement and enhancing community service to advance public health. 

On Friday, Andy Tran (D16), Charles Pham (D16) and Min Chao (D15) headed over to the Greater Boston Chinese Golden Age Center (GBCGAC) to conduct a trilingual (Mandarin, Cantonese and English) oral health presentation. The students used the Jeopardy game created by Janna Laverdiere (D17) and Marissa Schwartz (D17) and fielded general questions. While acknowledging that doing a presentation in several languages can be complex, the students felt good about being able to provide an important service. Following the presentation,  Nancy Marks, Community Service Learning coordinator received a thank you email from GBCGAC Activity Director, Juan Chen who shared,"The elderly in the center loved the three students from Tufts dental. The students were very patient, friendly and very punctual. They answered lots of questions from the elderly including denture, cleaning, pain, root canals etc. The whole lecture was relaxing and interesting, the students brought some laughter to the center as well."  Great work Andy, Charles and Min!
