Recent Biology Graduate Assists with Dental Procedures in Tanzania
Madison assisted while her father and another dentist saw 148 patients and extracted 347 teeth over the course of 5 days. Madison reports that the rate of cavities, decayed teeth, and gum disease was astounding. She found the experience both eye-opening and heartbreaking. In Madison's own words, "I wanted to give the people of Ipalamwa the opportunity to improve their health and live happier lives." Madison's inspiring journey is detailed at https://riseagainsthungerphilippines.org/aspiring-dental-student-journeys-to-serve-in-tanzania/ She will attend the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine in fall 2019.
