Life University operates a clinic that provides free care to populations who cannot afford to seek out care in private practices. This clinic allows our students to give back while learning the clinical art of Chiropractic. The Outreach Center is located in a 3,200 square-foot facility off Roswell Road in Marietta, Georgia.
The University’s Outreach Program dates back to 2003, having a shelter clinic in downtown Atlanta and two in the Marietta area. However a few years ago as the patient base grew there became a need for a larger Chiropractic Community Outreach Center and the Roswell Center was opened.
“What’s nice about the Outreach Clinic is that we give our students the opportunity to see critical care patients who have a lot more health issues than patients they would normally see at the on-campus clinic,” explains Dr. Mirtschink. “This gives students more opportunities to see exactly what the power of Chiropractic can do for patients that have visceral conditions.”
LIFE’s Community Outreach Clinic provides care to those in the community who cannot afford regular chiropractic care. Patients may have to provide documentation that shows that they meet the income designated for free service. The clinic also accepts walk-in patients, and the same requirements stated above apply to them as well. The Outreach clinic also works with outside organizations.
