Thanks to Parkway United Church of Christ for making a donation to help the Clinic do community service. Also, thanks to several local experts who gave their time to teach our students about long term-care insurance options: Ellen Atkins, Gerry Malmo and Ernie Osborn. They are each Certified in Long-Term Care.
Our Medical Teaching Partners:
