A Student's View of the Neighborhood

Unlike most tours of Boston, the one for the latest crop of Boston University School of Public [...]Health students skipped the typical "must-see" sights, like Fenway Park and Newbury Street.

Instead, the tour bus traveled down the streets of Boston's less glamorous neighborhoods, such as Roxbury and Dorchester. While these areas are widely perceived as communities with high levels of violence and poverty, they are also home to vibrant neighborhoods, tight-knit community groups, and excellent health centers that serve populations of interest to BUSPH, which strives to improve the health of people in its nearby neighborhoods as well as around the world.

Get a glimpse of the tour from the perspective of Alayna Tress, a first year health policy and management student at BUSPH.
