August 24, 2010 — The president of Erchonia Medical Charlie Shanks recently joined the faculty, staff, students and administrators of Texas Chiropractic College (TCC) to officially kick off the grand opening of the Erchonia Laser Healthcare Center at TCC’s Moody Health Center (MHC).
The Erchonia Laser Healthcare Center is MHC’s newly renovated rehab room. Erchonia Medical, a leader in medical laser products based in McKinney, Texas, generously donated several of their lasers and also the funds needed to expand and renovate the rehab facility. TCC Alumnus Dr. David Pope was influential in the process of working out the details of the donation.
“I am very grateful for the donation by Erchonia and Mr. Shanks, and to Dr. Pope who helped make all of this possible. These lasers will allow our students to use the latest technologies to treat their patients at the Moody Health Center, “ TCC President Richard G. Brassard said. “At TCC, we strive to produce the best doctors of chiropractic possible, and by partnering with Erchonia Medical, we are providing an opportunity to those students to learn new techniques.”
The lasers will be used by doctors and their interns at TCC’s outpatient clinic, MHC. Lasers are commonly used to treat pain in both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions.
“We are extremely excited about the opportunity to have a new Erchonia Laser Healthcare center and to work with those who share our vision of providing the best proven healthcare systems our nation can offer,” President of Erchonia Charlie Shanks said. “The dean of clinics at TCC, Dr. Rahim Karim, his staff, and students have created an environment that encourages a high standard of education. We are proud that TCC has trusted us to be a part of it. This is a joyous occasion for the Erchonia family to be able to give back to those who have supported us for the past 15 years, and help us continue our goal of being the world’s best laser healthcare company.”
