The Tufts chapter of Medicine in Motion is coordinated through the student run TUSM Running Club. Based out of the Chinatown campus, the club organizes weekly runs along the Charles river as well as coordinates teams for races throughout the Boston/Cambridge area. While the running club is coordinated by medical students, it is open to students and/or faculty from other schools looking to run from the Chinatown area. The current leadership of the running club consists of Ben Miltenberg, Katie Stevenson, and Ketch Cowan while Jacob Klickstein and Ben Miltenberg are the Tufts MM Chapter Captains.
