November 5, 2009 — Northwestern Health Sciences University and the Salvation Army Harbor Light Clinic have teamed up to offer free chiropractic care to those who use the shelter’s resources. Chiropractic students from the university will participate in internships at the clinic and provide care in the new space.
Northwestern has been operating a student clinic at the Salvation Army for about two years. The clinic began offering chiropractic care two weeks ago. Jeff Novak, DC, chiropractic supervisor at Harbor Light Clinic, said the new facility is very functional.
The new clinic space has a private room and space for three table treatments. There is also a private office for consultations. Northwestern acupuncture student interns see about 15 patients a day while chiropractic student interns see about seven patients a day.
