WHITTIER, CA. – (Oct. 17, 2022) — Southern Californians can receive free chiropractic care at our upcoming SCU Health Tent Event community outreach clinics in Whittier; and free Ayurveda services at our upcoming outreach clinics – in partnership with SPIRITT Family Services, in Whittier and Bell Gardens.
SCU Health offers free Tent Event outreach clinic in a continuing effort to serve the community with integrative healthcare services, increase the awareness of integrative healthcare benefits, and provide students with patient treatment and clinical experience.
SCU Health Tent Event free chiropractic services will be held on the campus of Southern California University of Health Sciences (SCU), at the Sports Medicine Clinic inside Building T, across from the University Health Center. The SCU campus address is 16200 Amber Valley Drive Whittier, CA 90604. Free parking is available in Parking Lot #1. A campus map is available for viewing.
No appointments are necessary, and patients will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis. Masks will be required as the Tent Event is an extension of the University Health Center, which is a healthcare facility.
Licensed faculty clinicians supervise the chiropractic treating students, and the care patients receive. SCU students receive course credit for volunteering but can also volunteer solely to practice.
SCU Health Tent Events are free and open to the public, although a donation of $5 – $25 is suggested. All patient donations will benefit La Habra’s non-profit Meals on Wheels, which provides home-delivered meals for anyone unable to prepare or obtain adequate meals, regardless of race, religion, sex, age, or ability to pay.
SCU Health Tent Events currently do not receive any outside or donor support.
