Florida Campus students recently made clinical rounds at the Hospice Care Center in Port Orange. All students registered in Structure 9 (Geriatrics) are part of a rotation through Hospice of Volusia/Flagler.

“This relationship we’ve built with Hospice has been a tremendous experience and success,” said program advisor and Florida Campus Instructor John Lockenour, D.C., Davenport ’77. “Our students are receiving valuable insights. The staff at Hospice has been very impressed with the quality of our students. We plan to continue this relationship every quarter.”

The Hospice of Volusia/Flagler has been a respected leader in end-of-life care since 1979. According to, the organization cares for nearly 600 patients throughout the area.

In a related event, a dozen students donated their time to serve food at the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life Benefit Dinner earlier this year. Florida Campus Professor Veronica Dishman, Ph.D., was a keynote speaker and coordinated the students’ participation.
