Chiropractic interns from the Cleveland University-Kansas City (CUKC) Chiropractic Health Center, shared their skills while giving back to residents of a local community on June 19. The 15 interns visited a church in Kansas City, Kan., where they conducted free sports physicals for youth in the area.
The event was a partnership between CUKC and Warriors 4 Wyandotte (W4W), a service organization in Wyandotte County, Kan. The group helps local kids with the challenges of their lives through mentorship programs. Their mission is, “To serve our community and be the constant voice for the children in Wyandotte County, we provide solutions that make a long-lasting difference.”
Dr. Angie Segovia, community outreach coordinator for the Health Center, said the volunteer effort was a successful endeavor, and one that was appreciated by families with a child in need of a physical. The day was also a positive experience for the CUKC volunteers, as some of the interns made a strong connection with W4W, and plan to do volunteer work with the group in the future.
The interns were assisted by Segovia and her fellow CUKC clinicians, Drs. Damon Dennis, Erin Stubblefield, and Shelby Waldman. The interns that participated include: Karri Bauman, Jaden Butcher, Dominic Cain, Melissa Clemons, Lauran Click, Danielle Craig, Adam Granville, Lorelle Katz, Seth Kotzman, Marissa Leivan, Kenneth Luong, Alyssa Rudzik, McKenzie Schmitt, Rachel Slattery, and Cain Winebrenner.
