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

On February 6th from 9AM-12PM, AAPD members along with Dr. Martha Forero, a clinical instructor in the Pediatric Department, will be heading to Josiah Quincy School for Lessons in a Lunchbox! This is a time to teach the kids about the importance of oral health and proper nutritional habits in a fun way. Volunteers will arrive at the school at 9 am (an hour prior to the presentation to have time to set up , to organize table displays and to determine the role of each of the volunteers).

The duration of the program is approximately one hour, that will include the presentation (description of the lunch box and video) distribution of the lunch boxes, and oral hygiene demonstration. At the end of the presentation we will make sure to have enough time for collection of demonstration aids (puppets, models) and Q&A from our volunteers.
