On April 20, a group of TUSDM students volunteered at the St. Francis House and Boston Healthcare for the Homeless Program to pass out free dental supplies and discuss the importance of oral health care. The St. Francis House is the largest day shelter in Massachusetts and work to serve the homeless.
Evan Gallegos (D21) reflects: “We were able to apply the communication skills we learned in IDP and OHP during this event. Many homeless individuals were able to acquire oral hygiene products they wouldn’t normally have access to. Omar Garcia and Noopoor Akruwala other D21s helped with providing the products to the community.”
