Back Care for All

Students from Marquette’s nurse practitioner grad program gave a presentation on back care for International Learning Center students, with help from in-house interpreter Nang Kham. A show of hands quickly revealed that nearly everyone has had back issues – whether from jobs that require heavy lifting, carrying small children, or the stress and strain of everyday life. Freddie and Peter demonstrated stretching and proper lifting techniques,  communicating across cultural and language barriers by keeping their language simple, using pictures, and showing how. ILC would definitely welcome them back again!
