Logan University Recognized by the Arthritis Foundation



The Arthritis Foundation has recognized Logan University as a 2015 Corporate Honoree for its efforts in working with the Foundation to battle arthritis since 2007. Over the past nine years, Logan has raised more than $125,000 for the Foundation and has hosted the Walk to Cure Arthritis event on its campus since 2012.

"We are thrilled to be honoring Logan University and Dr. Robert Kuhn at the 35th Annual Silver Ball this December," said Jan Bignall, Area Vice President of the Arthritis Foundation in the Heartland Region. "With the help of Logan, the Arthritis Foundation continues to lead the fight for the arthritis community and help conquer everyday battles through life-changing information and resources, access to optimal care, advancements in science and community connections."

The Walk to Cure Arthritis is the Foundation’s annual community fundraising 5K walk event; nationwide, the event has raised more than $7.8 million toward finding a cure for arthritis, according to the foundation’s website.

Robert Kuhn, DC, DACBR, ART, who was instrumental in the partnership with the Arthritis Foundation, served as the Logan representative with the Arthritis Walk Committee from 2007 to 2012. In 2012, he became the volunteer event chairman and began hosting the Arthritis Walk on Logan’s campus.

Martha Kaeser, DC, MEd, Director of Academic Assessment, has succeeded Dr. Kuhn as the chair of the Walk to Cure Arthritis in St. Louis. “The award is a symbol of our commitment and passion for service to the local community as well as a great way for us to partner with an organization that supports chiropractic as part of the integrated health care team providing patient care to people with arthritis,“ she said.

Dr. Kuhn will accept the award on behalf of Logan at the Foundation’s 35th Annual Silver Ball gala on Dec. 5 in St. Louis.

Logan University Opens Clinic with Family Care Health Centers

Logan University opened its first clinic in collaboration with Family Care Health Centers (FCHC) at the University’s Southfield Chiropractic Health Center in St. Louis.

The Logan Chiropractic Community Outreach Clinic is accepting patients referred through FCHC, a federally-qualified community health care provider with locations in St. Louis’ Carondelet and Forest Park Southeast neighborhoods.

“FCHC was looking for ways to provide chiropractic services to meet the varying needs of their patients when they approached us,” said Barry Wiese, DC, MHA, director of integrated health centers at Logan University. “We are thrilled to offer a service to those without access to natural treatment of chronic pain.”
Alex Gafford, DC, who graduated from Logan in April 2004, will oversee treatment of all patients in the clinic. Dr. Gafford said he looks forward to helping the underserved. “FCHC is a great organization, and I think this kind of collaboration is positive for the future of both organizations,” he said.  
The Logan Chiropractic Community Outreach Clinic will provide a range of chiropractic services treating pain associated with low back, shoulders, knees and feet, among others. The clinic is serving patients from noon to 6 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
