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

Last week, the D18 community service chairs hosted a Creativity Night. The goal of the creativity night was to create new and improve upon the existing oral health promotion materials that we have at the dental school. Many individuals, organizations, and clubs use the materials for OHI events and some were outdated or could use touch ups. The D18 class came together and got creative with how we could make new learning tools. D18 Community Service Co-Chair Lauren Gerkowicz said, ”

  “Creativity night was an incredible event! The D18 class showed so much enthusiasm and motivation to generate new oral health promotion materials and games. The night allowed for a creative outlet for the students, whose days are usually filled with class, book work, and preclinical work. The games, posters and art that the students created was outstanding and because of their hard work, many members of the Tufts community as well as the local community will benefit through improved learning tools.”
