Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine
Tufts’ Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine recently hosted a group of Red Sox Foundation Scholars. The scholars, academically gifted and economically challenged sixth-graders from Boston Public Schools, learned a bit about veterinary medicine, saw some of the workings of the farm, and met one very special cow. Here’s a video from their trip, showing some of the highlights.

Tufts President Lawrence Bacow was recently awarded the Under the Roof Leadership award for his work with the Somerville Homeless Coalition. This tribute video, presented by the Homeless Coalition, honors Bacow for his commitment to community service and active citizenship. As both an individual and the leader of the Tufts community, Bacow has taken a personal investment in getting involved in causes like the Homeless Coalition, and his initiative has inspired many others to do the same. Bacow explains the importance of the cause:
One way of measuring the justness of a society is [looking at] how it treats the most vulnerable among us…I think it’s important that we reach out, that we don’t turn a blind eye — that we try and engage, and that we try and help. And I am proud of what the university has been able to do to support the Homeless Coalition.”
Here’s the video honoring Bacow’s contribution:

Tufts graduate student Elizabeth Mahaffy (A’11) and recent alumni Joseph Cutrufo (A’10) created a video called “Greening the Curriculum.” The video, which was produced in partnership with Tufts Institute of the Environment for the Tufts Environmental Literacy Institute, features conversations with students on the Medford/Somerville and Boston campuses about integrating environmental issues into Tufts classes. Both Mahaffy and Cutrufo are of the Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning program at Tufts.

The Community Health Advocates at Tufts (CHAT) is the first official student group in the Tufts Public Health and Professional Degree program. Made up of Tufts graduate students hailing from a variety of backgrounds, CHAT provides a forum for collaboration between future health care leaders from the Tufts community and advocates for causes such as health care policy and disease prevention.
In partnership with the Massachusetts Public Health Association, CHAT recently blogged about their support of the Act FRESH campaign policy agenda.
The blog offers readers a peek into the happenings of the vet school, not to mention a guaranteed pick-me-up after viewing the “awww”-inducing pictures of kittens and puppies.
