Student Clinic Fund

The Chiropractic Health Center is a specialized learning environment where skills gained in the classroom are practiced and honed under the guidance of health center faculty.  The student clinic renovation campaign is raising funds for space renovations in the current student clinic area and to furnish it with state of the art chiropractic equipment and professional case study, director and instructor work areas. Our goal is to raise $75,000. More than $32,000 was raised during our Lyceum kick-off for the campaign.
