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

Wellness Committee

The TUSDM Wellness Committee is a passionate group of students, faculty and staff committed to developing an environment of mind-body wellness at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine.

Our committee is dedicated to building and supporting wellness and stress management skills in the dental school curriculum centered on supporting our students throughout their years of training.

This environment of mind-body wellness empowers a healthy, balanced and inspired community of students as well as faculty and staff with resources that promote awareness of one’s ell being and of those we serve.

This culture of wellness that was envisioned and deliberately created is a unique and revolutionary asset to dental education as it ultimately impacts the excellent patient care our TUSDM institution provides.
