When Ron Mack of East Grand Forks had a stroke several years ago, he needed more physical therapy than his insurance provided.

He found help at UND’s pro bono physical therapy clinic, where students worked with Mack to improve his walking and balance.

“They really helped me,” Mack said. “That first year after my stroke, getting back into my life was quite an undertaking.”

Mack continues coming to the clinic, which is held for eight weeks each fall, for physical therapy.

“We’ve been working on my balance and strength,” Mack said. “This is a good place to go. And I hope the students get something out of it.”

They do.
