Hands-On Healing at the Ithaca Free Clinic

Written by 1/26/2009

Occupational therapy students also work with children in IC's pediatric clinic.

Last fall Ithaca College occupational therapy students and faculty began volunteering their skills to uninsured members of the Ithaca community at the Ithaca Free Clinic.

Among the services offered are range-of-motion exercises to increase functional abilities, customized splints, community reentry skills training, and other meaningful support in areas such as patient education, home management, and self-care.

“By partnering with the Ithaca Free Clinic, Ithaca College and the School of Health Sciences and Human Performance are taking part in a win-win situation,” says Julie Dorsey, assistant professor of occupational therapy. “Our students get hands-on experience to develop and use their skills, and the clients at the clinic get much-needed rehabilitative service.”
