Evanthia Vranas, D20, joined the dental school’s Health and Wellness Committee when she first arrived on campus, and has shared her enthusiasm for fitness with classmates ever since. For three years she has rallied fellow students to join the American Cancer Society’s outdoor yoga event, “Vinyasa with a View,” and this year she recruited Jumbos for the TUSDM Climbers, who tackled forty-one flights in the American Lung Association’s annual Fight for Air stair-climbing challenge. You can join Vranas for a barre class at this year’s Alumni Reunion Weekend, 8 a.m. on May 11, at the Four Seasons Hotel in Boston.
