For several years now Husson University Graduate students majoring in Physical Therapy, have offered their new skills to the public through their SOARing Eagles Healthcare Clinic, at a no-cost or low cost to the uninsured or underinsured.

This year, according to Sarah Walker Caron, Husson University's Director of Communications, they plan to do it again and are currently accepting new patients.

"The clinic is staffed by Husson University Physical Therapy graduate students who provide treatments under the supervision of licensed physical therapists. PT students in the first year of their graduate studies are paired with experienced second-year students at the clinic, allowing them to learn from each other. "

Director of the SOARing Eagles Healthcare Clinic, Dr. Kimberly Steinbarger says the clinic offers services to the public, and the students receive valuable hands-on experience in exchange.

"The SOARing Eagles Healthcare Clinic has provided valuable service to community members since 2014. For students, this is also an opportunity to extend their learning in a real-life setting. We aim to provide holistic, individualized treatment for patients while giving them more attention than they might receive elsewhere.”
