Funds

There are so many ways for your gift to accomplish something meaningful and the choice is up to you. Funding for scholarships can open doors for exceptional students. Support of our free and reduced cost clinic programs can bring life-changing health care. Funding for capital programs provides for the very best equipment, lab upgrades and facilities – critical for nurturing student initiative and providing innovative programs. Unrestricted income is directed by the president to meet the university’s most pressing needs.

Community Clinics

UWS clinics provide real-world training for interns while serving the community with affordable, sliding scale and free health care services, including chiropractic, massage therapy, nutrition counseling, X-rays, orthotics and more. UWS covers much of the treatment costs at a reduced-price or for free because treatment is not always covered by Medicare. Last year, our downtown clinic provided 5,728 hours of chiropractic care to 922 unique patients at a value of nearly $3 million.

Your gift to the community clinics ensures that we will be able to continue and expand our health care services to even more people in need. Your gifts also support essential clinic operations expenses, like supplies, fixtures, salaries and overhead – everything we need to train our interns and serve our patients.
