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

This past week, a group of D18s lead by Lauren Gerkowicz (D18) provided oral health instructions, handed out toothbrushes and toothpaste, and played dental-related games at the Urban Edge Extravaganza in Roxbury. The event was set up to distribute backpacks and school supplies to children in the area. Lauren had this to say about the event:

“This was a wonderful event because aside from the school supplies that were handed out, Tufts Dental was the only other organization represented. We were able to get the attention of all the families that came through and that allowed for us to make the biggest impact. The children and parents enjoyed and interacted with the display at our table and everyone benefited from the tooth brushes and paste we handed out!”
