Wilkes University pre-dental student Jasmin Patel, of Clarks Summit, is one of two Wilkes students to participate in the Benco Family Foundation’s Lessons in a Lunchbox. The program is designed for second and third-graders from the Wilkes-Barre Area School District to highlight the connections between healthy nutrition and proper dental hygiene. Patel was part of the volunteer group which handed out the lunch boxes and showed the elementary students how to use the tools inside.
