February 25, 2014

Northwestern Health Sciences University is partnering with the Uptown VFW Post 246 to offer a meal and health care to veterans. The event will provide dinner and free chiropractic, acupuncture and massage therapy treatments.

"So many veterans are unaware of how chiropractic care, acupuncture and massage therapy can help them," said James McCloden, veteran of 9th Psyop Bn (A), who is also an admissions representative for Northwestern Health. "We are specifically trying to reach vets who are living in shelters or don't have regular access to health care."
