Winston Salem State University’s School of Health Sciences (SOHS) has been awarded a $47,000 grant from Islamic Relief USA (IRUSA) that will help improve and expand the free services that are provided at the school’s physical therapy and occupational therapy community clinics, held at the Community Care Center in Winston-Salem.
“Our partnership with Islamic Relief USA is helping WSSU’s School of Health Sciences to address the therapy needs of underserved individuals and improve the overall health of Winston-Salem residents,” said Nancy Smith, clinical associate professor in the Department of Physical Therapy at WSSU. “This generous grant will help both our organizations with our missions to increase health equity in our community.”
Since 2009, the Department of Physical Therapy (PT) in the SOHS has offered free services at the Community Care Center of Winston Salem. In 2015, the Department of Occupational Therapy (OT) joined in providing free care in the clinic, made possible by a previous grant by IRUSA.
