September 11, 2011 — Dr. Brian Anderson, clinician from the National University of Health Sciences (NUHS) Whole Health Center in Lombard, Ill., supervised a group of interns volunteering to provide chiropractic medical care to those attending the Illinois Warrior Summit 2011 event at Soldier Field in downtown Chicago Aug. 23.
The NUHS group treated almost 100 vets, and DC interns had a chance to see military personnel with a variety of battle related injuries.
“The veterans and active military personnel were so thankful for the treatment provided by the interns,” says Anderson. “The interns also got valuable experience on how we can effectively spread the word about our clinic services through community service.”
Assistant Dean for Acpuncture and Oriental Medicine, Dr. Frank Yurasek, also treated a large number of veterans at the event with a special acupuncture protocol shown to provide relief for those suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
