Earlier this month, the HDA headed out to the Most Holy Redeemer Church in East Boston to promote oral health education and perform basic screenings and oral hygiene instructions. Event organizer Courtney Schick (D16) had this to say about the event:
“It was nice to present in East Boston in Spanish. I believe this language connection made a more effective delivery of our important information. I would like to improve our screening documents so that we are gathering data that can be used in a meaningful way.
It is extra effort to put health fairs together, but reaching community members with oral education makes the effort worth it. Additionally, setting up an opportunity for classmates/students to interact and educate community members outside of the walls of Tufts adds even more justification for putting the event together.”
