LEVELLAND –The Physical Therapy Assistants Program and the Licensed Vocational Nursing programs at South Plains College will host a Fall Prevention Clinic for the surrounding communities from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Sept. 17 in the Allied Health Building.
According to Jackie Underwood, SPC PTA Program Director, “We plan to have students check vital signs, complete a basic medication screening, complete a balance assessment for fall risk, safety education and an exercise session. We would like to get the information out early and often so we can have a good turnout for the students. This is a community service event sponsored by the PTASA.”
The PTA Program will conduct a massage fundraiser from 3 to 5 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays from Sept. 10 through Oct. 17 in the Mall Area of the Student Center. The suggested donation is $10 for 10 minutes or $15 for 15 minutes. Proceeds from the event will be used to bringing PTA Licensure Exam Prep Course to SPC.
