I helped make masks for the healthcare workers on the front lines by occasionally stepping on the sewing machine peddles. These masks are on their way to Lemuel Shattuck Hospital via #TuftsDental’s #collect2protect initiative.🧵 .

Big thanks to the #JamaicaPlain Fiber Arts group for the fabric and elastic. .

Big thanks to Tufts Dental School’s #collect2protect project (turns out there’s some serious overlap between dentists and crafters) and the #JamaicaPlain Fiber Arts group for the fabric and elastic. .

maxtherednosedpittie has been helping me make masks for those on the front lines in hospitals. And by that I mean smushing his body between the sewing machine and me, occasionally stepping on the pedal and making it go REALLY fast while I scramble for the off switch to make sure it doesn’t go completely out of control.🧵 .

First batch of mask completed! Aiming for 1,000 but limited in elastic as all places are sold out. Ugh. Now to get them distributed. Trip to supermarket was an intense procedure and getting home and wiping all the food down was anxiety producing. Be safe everyone. Hope you all are doing ok. Remember: you are not stuck at home-you are safe at home. #workingfromhome #quarentine2020 #workforcebyinseam #helpingothers #collecttoprotect #protectourworkforce #tusdm #dentalcentral

**ATTENTION** I am currently launching an initiative with one of my dear faculty members through Tufts Dental School, and we want YOUR help!🦷 Please take a look at this flyer and help us spread the word. 🔹#predental students, this could be something great to impact your local community now and to exhibit philanthropy + manual dexterity for your applications. 🔹#dentalstudents #medicalstudents #students I know most of you (including myself) are feeling detached from the world and unable to help. This could be something you can do to help your community while practicing #socialdistancing and to help #flattenthecurve !! 🔹Friends and community members: healthcare professionals, food banks, homeless shelters, special needs schools, many places in need of protective equipment are unable to obtain these items due to a shortage. 🔹While these handmade #facemask and #faceshield options are certainly not as great as an #n95mask , #cdc has approved scarves and bandanas as a last resort— this option is far better than those! 🔹Questions and comments below are welcome and so are emails! 🔹Help me and the Tufts Dental Family to spread the word and help keep our essential workers a bit more safe. Thanks for stopping by -smilesinscrubs 🦷

And just like that, Tufts ASDA just had it’s last exec board meeting of the 2019-2020 year! Thank you so much to each and every person that worked hard to make this a great year for ASDA! Your hard work has made an incredible impact on dental students, the dental field, and communities far and wide. Until next year e-board! 👋✌️

This probably looks awful to the experts, but I think I'm doing alright for a beginner.
