Feed 'Em and Treat 'Em event will offer free meal and health care.
Northwestern Health Sciences University is partnering with the Uptown VFW Post 246 on Thursday to offer a meal and health care to veterans. Volunteers from Northwestern will treat veterans to a free meal and complimentary demonstrations by chiropractic, acupuncture and massage therapy practitioners.
The event is from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. on Thursday, March 6, 2014, at the James Balentine VFW Post 246-Uptown.
The Feed 'Em and Treat 'Em event is part of Northwestern’s Yellow Ribbon School outreach to veterans and to members of the military. For more information contact James McCloden at 952-888-4777 ext. 407.
"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."
