Public Health Beyond the Clinic
Elon Joffre came to Saint Anselm College from a Benedictine high school in Nassau, Bahamas. He soon built strong friendships and found a mentor in one of the biology professors. A local dentist provided an internship experience, and he moved to Boston after graduation to attend Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. Joffre has always wanted to use his skills to help underserved populations. While at Tufts, he worked at a community health center through the school's clinical practice program. He continued to volunteer while completing a general practice residency at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women's Hospital. He then returned to Tufts for his orthodontic residency. He is pursuing a master's degree in public health at Harvard, focusing on minority health policy.
