Thomas “T.” Bennett, a third-year student at Tufts School of Medicine, spent this past holiday season in Haiti. Concerned about the dangerous effects of the devastating 7.0 earthquake that struck the country a year ago, Bennett decided to dedicate his vacation from school to teach seminars on cholera prevention to young people. He also spent time with orphans, helping to organize educational projects and celebrate the holiday season.
In August of 2009, Tufts School of Dental Medicine sent 19 volunteers on a humanitarian trip to Haiti. A collection of Tufts’ reaction to the tragedy in Haiti can be found here.
