Volunteer of the Month Photo

“I’ve been volunteering at the Multiple Sclerosis Clinic in the Community Rehabilitation Clinic for 5 weeks and it has been one of the best environments I’ve worked in any clinic. I didn’t know what to expect being the first time I’ve worked with neurological patients, but every time I come in, I’ve learned so much about MS that I never knew before. The patients bring a great spirit to the clinic every visit. They are a lot of fun to work with. My time volunteering here has been totally worth it.”

J.R. has been a great help to the MS Clinic! He heard about the clinic through the BYU Physical Therapy Club and he needs Neurological Hours for physical therapy school. He has assisted physical therapists and physical therapy assistants by helping patients with MS do their exercises. He also performed manual stretches, assisted patients during gait exercises and helped transfer patients when needed. He is very observant, well – focused, and gets along great with the patients.
