Last year's HPSP Troop Drive

On November 14th, the Health Professional Scholarship student organization will begin our 7th annual “Drive for the Troops”. Each of HPSP students has a military obligation with the Army, Navy or Air Force to fulfill upon receiving their DMD.  From November 14th to the 23rd at noon in the Sackler cafeteria, they begin to collect items such as DVDs, snacks, hygiene items, Boston sports paraphernalia, T-shirts, etc to send to our military members serving our country overseas in an area where these items may not be available. As a young person being a long way from home, it’s always kind of nice to be remembered and thought of.

If you have a relative or know a military member who is serving overseas and may like to receive a gift during the holidays, please e-mail Kyu Choi at, Ashley Wallace at or Dr. Rankin at   Let them know and we’ll be sure to send them something.
