Life U Places First Student in VA Hospital PEAK Preceptorship
Senior Intern Marquise Rivera has been selected to participate in a PEAK preceptorship VA Hospital in Murfreesboro, Tennessee during Fall Quarter 2019.
She will be working with Dr. Jason Cook and his team in the Wellness Unit. The Wellness Unit was conceived as a way to cope with the Opioid epidemic and includes Chiropractic, Physical Therapy, Acupuncture, Nutrition and Emotional Support.
The intern will learn to apply chiropractic care in a multi-disciplinary, in-patient facility. They work primarily with military veterans who have conditions that have led to opioid medication use, and this program is targeted to reduce or eliminate the need for opioid medications. We are excited about the potential to place additional interns in the future.
