Julie Stage-Rosenberg, Dental Hygiene Professor, enthusiastically volunteers at many organizations, and encourages her students to also be actively involved in the community.

Stage-Rosenberg is the state and regional Head Start Dental Hygiene Liaison — Arizona, California, Hawaii and Nevada. She serves on the Hillel of Northern Nevada Advisory Board, a Jewish organization for college students, and volunteers for Remote Area Medical (RAM) dental clinics during annual events scheduled in Northern Nevada.

She also volunteers with the following organizations:

  • Nevada Network Against Domestic Violence, Advisory Board
  • Northern Nevada Coalition for Underserved Populations (CUSP), dental support
  • Advisory Committee for Nevada State Oral Health Program, appointed member
  • University of Nevada, Reno, Early Head Start Program, consultant and partner
  • Incline Village dental screenings and fluoride varnish

“My main focus of most of my volunteer work is to help improve the lives of people in my community and state by increasing access to dental care,” Stage-Rosenberg said. “My main philosophy for volunteerism comes from Winston Churchill, ‘We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.’ I also try to live by the words of Gandhi, ‘Be the change you wish to see in the world.’”

Student Veterans Help With DAV Fundraiser

Local Vietnam veteran Frank Greenwood is leading a raffle fundraiser this summer, and TMCC student veterans are helping with the effort.

Greenwood has led the fundraiser project for close to 20 years, as reported by News Channel 4. This summer, he has a shaded table set up in front of Sportsman’s Warehouse in Reno, and has set a goal of raising $100K in order to donate proceeds to the Disabled American Veterans Reno Chapter #1, Honor Flight Nevada, and also to student veteran groups at TMCC, Western Nevada College (WNC) and University of Nevada, Reno (UNR).

The student organization at TMCC is the Truckee Meadows Veterans Club (TMVC).

“We have had a number of students helping out with the raffle,” said Zachary Totans, TMCC Veterans Resource Center (VRC) Coordinator. “Our current TMVC President, Gunnar Annis, along with fellow students Steve Simi and James Cranford have been going a few times a week. We will continue to have representation throughout the summer.”

The drawing and a community barbecue will be held on Saturday, Aug. 26. A Polaris UTV and sport shooting weapons are prizes for winning ticket holders, reported Channel 4.

For more information, please call the VRC at 775-337-5612.
