Noteworthy News

Questions or comments concerning the Boston Collaborative Group can be directed to the chair or the staff liaison Lisa Davis.

  • The Boston Collaborative Group participated in the Back to School Jams in Jamaica Plain, Brookline, and Mission Hill in August 2013 for the second consecutive year. Dentists and students from Boston screened children for dental disease and promoted oral health by distributing toothbrushes and floss. The Jams were sponsored by Representative Jeffrey Sanchez's office.
  • Boston members helped build homes for deserving families in Boston with Habitat for Humanity in Spring 2012. Articles about this event were published in the Fenway Health newsletter and on Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine's website.
