* Ace CARE Van Needs Volunteers

Ace CARE is a student-run organization that provides free physical therapy services to the uninsured and underinsured people of the Evansville community. This wonderful program allows students from the physical therapy, physician assistant, athletic training, and health science undergraduate degrees to get hands-on practice with patients while also providing health care to individuals who would not receive it otherwise!

Ace CARE has the amazing ability to provide a vulnerable community with transportation to and from their sessions on campus through the use of a van. There are even one to two physical therapy students riding along throughout the routes to help safely transfer patients into and out of the van. Currently, there is a need for more volunteers to donate their time, and help drive the van on Tuesday nights from 4 - 7:30pm. If you are interested or have any questions, please reach out to Dr. Schwartzkopf-Phifer at

Come be a part of an organization that truly is changing lives and making the Evansville community a better place!
