Together the partners provide comprehensive services to residents while providing valuable service-learning and professional practice opportunities to University students, staff, and faculty. Participating academic disciplines include Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Psychology, Social Work, and Applied Sociology. The Center includes University classrooms, conference rooms, offices, exam rooms, counseling rooms, medical lab, computer lab, fitness room, and a community research center.
