Students provide care in rural Jamaica through the Tufts Global Outreach Program
Four Tufts dental students, Kelly Barbera, D18; Michael Golub, D18; Timothy Kim, D18; and Tahira Williams, D16, traveled to Jamaica earlier this year to provide dental care through the Tufts Global Outreach program. The weeklong trip was coordinated by Healthcare International, an organization of dentists and physicians that focuses on underserved areas of Jamaica.
“Global outreach is something that doesn’t end with a week- or even a month- long period of service, but is an effort to build continued, sustainable care,” said Kim, who switched careers from photography to dentistry, chronicled the trip in a series of photographs, one of which appears at left.
