Passion is at the core of what chiropractors do every day. It’s also the fuel that drives many in the profession to step outside their comfort zones for causes greater than their own. Dr. Emily McLeod Long ’00 took such a step for the first time during the summer of 2013, when she volunteered to join a mission trip to Africa organized by fellow Clevelander Dr. Chad Hawk ’99. The 14 days McLeod Long spent in Ghana with Epik Missions were life-altering, and have prompted three return trips to Africa in the last six months.
McLeod Long is currently working to organize a chiropractic trip to Malawi in 2015, and is seeking other D.C.’s to join her. She can be reached at (816) 694-9003. Visit http://tinyurl.com/EpikMission to view a video on McLeod Long’s Ghana trip with Epik Missions.
