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

“Last Monday, we had about 25 HPSP students, Dean Karimbux, Dr. Mark Nehring, Karen Alexander, and five military recruiters at the Tufts HPSP Senior Event meeting to celebrate and recognize Tufts D20 HPSP graduates. The virtual meeting also allowed seven HPSP Tufts alumni to tune in from all over the country!

The alumni included:
LCOL Jim Murphy, D09, USAF oral surgeon
MAJ Anastasia Panos, D10, US Army, periodontist
LCDR Alyse Fleming, D12, US Navy, Endodontics
LCDR Tyler Fleming, D12, US Navy
MAJ Rachel Misuraca D13, US Army Orthodontics
LT Ashley Wallace, D17, US Navy, Camp Lejeune, NC
LT Alex Sukys, D17, US Navy, Parris Island NC

Dean Karimbux gave the opening welcome which was followed by an HPSP Powerpoint presentation. The D20s honored were:

Brent Mullen, US Army
Keith Nguyen, US Army
Cindy Se Ha Park, US Air Force
Randy To, US Navy
Mason Fortuno, US Navy
(Pat McLoughlin, US Navy was unable to attend.)

It was a fabulous time getting everyone together. Of course we’d rather honor our graduates personally but, it was also nice to see some of our alumni.

Tufts HPSP student organization has been in existence since 2002 and has seen 172 Tufts Dental graduates become military dental officers (30 AF; 76 Army; 66 Navy). We are so proud of them and their service to our country! ”

Congratulations D20 Graduates!!
