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

On November 18, 2017, the class of 2020 volunteered at St. Francis church in Boston. The St. Francis church is a shelter for the homeless and those experiencing poverty. The students promoted oral health through a game board presentation for those at the church.

Robert Brookings (D20) reflects: “During our trip, we learned what needs and wants this specific local population has. We also gained insight into how we can improve these types of events in the future, and how to personalize our presentation to our audience.”

Participants: Rayna Silva, Ruby Wagimin, Vendita Correia, Anne Hefele, Phi Tran, Craig Holliday, Gloria Enjuweh, Robert Brookings.
