Brenau’s Pro-Bono Physical Therapy Clinic, which is housed in the Brenau Downtown Center, provides physical therapy services to low-income community members. Patients receive free evaluations, diagnosis and treatments from Doctor of Physical Therapy students, who are supervised by PT faculty and PT volunteers. The clinic, which opened in 2017, treats patients referred by Good News Clinics, a nonprofit organization that offers free medical and dental care to uninsured residents of Hall County.
DPT students have the opportunity to work in the pro-bono clinic, starting in their fifth semester. By serving at the clinic, students gain valuable hands-on experience, build meaningful patient connections and make a difference in people’s lives.
