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

On September 18, AAPD’s E-Board volunteered with Room To Grow. Room to Grow is an organization that serves families from just before their child’s birth through age 3. They provide high-quality material items (like clothes, books and toys), individualized parenting education, and specialized referrals to community resources to ensure a healthy and secure start to the child’s life.

The AAPD team helped to organize baby clothes and pack materials to be stored and shipped to Room to Grow’s new satellite office at the Epiphany School in Dorchester. Dr. Forero and the E-Board also brought 140 children’s toothbrushes and 50 tubes of toothpaste to donate to the organization. Everyone had a great time and look forward to working with the amazing company again in the future!
