17th Annual Homeless Veteran Stand Down features Palmer chiropractors
Joining a variety of health care and social service providers, Palmer clinicians and student interns treated dozens of homeless veterans at the 17th Annual Stand Down, held on March 31.
Staged at the National Guard Armory in Cocoa, Fla., Stand Down provides care to the many homeless veterans living in and around central Florida. For many it is the only health care and assistance they receive, and resources are in place for the veterans to link up with counseling, health care, financial, social security, food and clothing needs.
This is the third Stand Down that Palmer has participated in over the last two years. For one of Palmer’s interns, he himself a veteran, this opportunity is one he cherishes.
“The opportunity Stand Down provides for me personally to give back to my brothers and sisters in need is very rewarding,” said George Panagopoulos, clinic intern. “We don’t leave our wounded behind!”
