Brian Anderson, clinician from the NUHS Whole Health Center in Lombard, 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 on August 23rd. 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 Dr. 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.
