Earning my degree at CUKC has allowed me to serve my community, and be a part of the solution to reduce access to care barriers for minorities. I further make a difference by educating future generations of chiropractors, promoting diversity within the profession, and by being a positive role model/mentor.
I have the opportunity to change lives and meet new people on a daily basis. I get to see people of all ages who are improving their health every day! I recall treating a patient who had never seen a chiropractor before. She suffered from chronic low back pain because of a car accident years ago. This patient had seen multiple providers for her condition, which resulted in very little improvement. She began to feel extremely frustrated and depressed. Chiropractic care resulted in 80 % reduction of her pain and the patient was able to return to work, decrease anxiety/depression and pain medications. She is now living a healthy lifestyle (physically and mentally).
