Sharewood Project

Sharewood volunteers at a Chinatown community event

The Sharewood Project is a free health education program that provides limited health care services. Sharewood is led by volunteer medical students and physicians affiliated with Tufts University School of Medicine and Cambridge Health Alliance, with help from other health professional students and translators from Tufts University.

Students educate clients about healthy lifestyle, nutrition, exercise, and the importance of medical wellness. Under the supervision of physicians and other healthcare providers, students also provide such services as school physicals, oral cancer screenings, confidential STD/HIV testing, and blood pressure screenings. A major focus of the Sharewood Project is its case management services, which connect clients with primary care physicians, MassHealth, and other social services that they may need.

All services are open to everyone, including the uninsured, and no appointment is necessary.

Unfortunately, due to limited resources, we are only able to provide physicals to school-age children (under the age of 18) and not adults. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Additionally, we can only see up to 3 minors in a group at one time for school physicals. If you have more than 3 minors that need physicals in 1 night, more than 1 legal guardian must be present.
