Global Service Learning Program in Zambia

Tufts University School of Dental Medicine (TUSDM) is very proud of the Global Service Learning (GSL) program. The program in Zambia has been longstanding and has a scope and sophistication that reflects the many years of development by program director, Dr. John Morgan, Professor in the Department of Public Health and Community Service.

July 12–August 4, 2019, TUSDM students Amanjot K. Sarao and Se Ha Park (both D20) and Adwoa Baidoo, Joyce Forbes, and Chardai Lyde (D21) took part in a Global Service Learning trip to Zambia led by Dr. Morgan. Nancy Marks, Tisch/TUSDM Community Service Coordinator & Liaison for the Tisch/TUSDM initiative, assisted the team. The Global Service Learning team collaborated with the Zambian Ministry of Health. TUSDM also gratefully acknowledges the generous support from the Henry Schein Company.
