The Grand Valley Injury Care Clinic has opened and is offering both in-person and for the first time, virtual appointments for students, faculty and staff.
While virtual appointments are useful during the pandemic, they also signal further growth for the clinic that has expanded in scope from its original intent of offering athletic training to students playing club or intramural sports to treating injuries for anyone in the campus community.
"We are glad to have the opportunity to help patients either in person or virtually, especially with the pandemic and different comfort levels and accessibility for patients," said Amy Campbell, associate director of Recreation and Wellness who helps lead the clinic. "With these virtual connections we can really provide services to many people, anywhere."
The clinic is a collaboration among Recreation and Wellness, the Movement Science Department and Metro Health. It offers free services that include injury evaluation and prevention, stretching techniques, acute injury care and, if necessary, a professional referral to another medical provider.
