Community Service Learning
At the School of Allied Health Professions we encourage our students to particpate in local service. Here are a few projects this year our students have participated in:
Since January 2015, Physical Therapy students and faculty have participated in Street Medicine (or Cornerstone Clinic), a free health clinic, which provides medical and physical therapy services to low income residents of San Bernardino. Every Wednesday, two faculty and four students go to treat patients with physical therapy needs, such as back, neck, ankle, or shoulder pain.
In the photo, two 2nd year DPT students, Perise S. (seated) and Kennya P. (standing) work with a cerebellar vascular accident (stroke) patient to improve seating balance by having her reach out on multiple planes so her trunk can adjust to the change of position.
