The collaboration of two higher education institutions in St. Louis has resulted in a partnership that provides free or reduced chiropractic and eye care services to students attending Logan University and University of Missouri-St. Louis.

UMSL OptometryEnrolled UMSL students, their spouses and dependents will be eligible to receive chiropractic services at either of Logan University’s two Health Centers, on campus in Chesterfield, or St. Peters, Missouri. In return, currently enrolled Logan students, their spouses and dependents will be eligible to receive eye and vision care when visiting any of UMSL’s College of Optometry’s three full-service eye care facilities in the St. Louis area.

“We are extremely delighted to partner with UMSL to offer comprehensive care services from our chiropractic physicians, while our Logan students receive vision care from UMSL,” said Calvin Thomas, IV, chief of clinic operations and strategic innovation at Logan University’s Heath Centers. “The partnership exemplifies the sharing of health resources with an enhanced, programmatic, peer-to-peer clinical educational experience for our students.”

“This is a great opportunity to expand services to our respective students and their families, while also giving our optometry and chiropractic students access to more hands-on experiences at our clinics,” said UMSL College of Optometry Dean Larry Davis said. “It’s a win-win for our students.”

Students from UMSL with a current valid student ID may make an appointment for chiropractic care at either of Logan’s Health Center locations. Students from UMSL with a current valid student ID will need to accompany their spouse and/or dependent or the first visit to receive the benefit.

  • One complementary new patient examination.
  • Ongoing office visits, re-examinations, X-ray views/interpretations and diagnostic ultrasounds at a 50 percent discount.
