Want to make a difference? Donate your skills as a physical therapist to the uninsured patients in Charleston!
SCAPTA
CARES clinic was founded in 2005 by MUSC students. The medical clinic is located in Mt. Pleasant while the CARES therapy clinic is located in downtown Charleston. The CARES Clinic believes that all residents of South Carolina should have access to quality healthcare regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, immigration or socioeconomic status.

CARES clinic is student-run, so they gain valuable experience performing evaluations, creating a plan of care, conducting treatment sessions and documenting. We need therapists to supervise SPTs and aid in their professional development through constructive criticism.

We are open from 6 p.m.-8:30 p.m., treating primarily orthopedic patients Tuesday nights and primarily neurologic patients Wednesday nights. For questions or more information on how you can help, contact caresclinicpt@gmail.com.

When will healthcare truly be affordable?
By Mike Wokasch
With implementation of the Affordable Care Act, the U.S. has taken a huge step in attempting to make healthcare affordable for all U.S. citizens. The objectives are clear and well-intended.

Branding physical therapy — use those 8 words wisely
AllanBesselink.com
Eight words. That's all you get to summarize what you do, your unique value proposition, your unique position. After all the work you have done, it just doesn't seem fair to reduce it to eight words. Of course, you can have a long-winded statement about all of the professional values, where the profession will be in 20 years, and the like. All those things are valuable — to someone.

The Hundred Years' War for healthcare reform
In These Times
The story of healthcare reform in the United states begins not with Obama, Clinton or even Johnson, but almost a century ago, in the years leading up to World War I. Although the Socialist Party of America had called for insurance for workers "against accident, sickness and lack of employment" as early as 1904, it wasn't until 1912, when the platform of Theodore Roosevelt's Progressive Party called for a system of health insurance, that it emerged as a major political issue.
