Learn More about Ace CARE

Our Mission

Ace CARE shall provide excellent pro bono healthcare services in order to connect the unmet healthcare needs of the Tri-State community with the educational experiences of University of Evansville Doctor of Physical Therapy students in collaboration with other allied health programs.

Our Vision

Ace CARE will meet the physical therapy and/or wellness needs of the uninsured, underinsured and vulnerable populations of the Evansville community, enhancing the sense of service and educational experience of the students involved.

How can I get involved if I’m not a physical therapy student?

Undergraduate Students

  • Without experience with other languages: Undergraduate students with an interest in physical therapy are encouraged to volunteer with our Ace+PT branch as a clinic tech. Please visit our Meet the Board page and contact the Clinic Co-Coordinator (Client Advocate) to volunteer or to request more information about the tech position.

  • Experience speaking another language/or majoring in another: Ace CARE serves all members of the community, including people who don't speak English as their first language. We have a large demographic of patients whose primary language is Spanish, as well as patients who speak various other languages, and would love to have your help interpreting in the Ace+PT clinic so we can communicate effectively with them! Please visit our Meet the Board page and contact the Clinic Co-Coordinator (Client Advocate) to volunteer or to request more information about the interpreter position.

  • Experience using American Sign Language (ASL): Our AceBuddies branch serves individuals who use ASL to communicate, and we would love to have your help to communicate with these participants and help them feel as welcome and understood as possible! Please visit our Meet the Board page and contact the AceBuddies Coordinator to volunteer or to request more information about this opportunity.

  • Education majors (or otherwise interested in education): Our AceBuddies branch has had students in education help out in the past and would love for this to continue! Please visit our Meet the Board page and contact the AceBuddies Coordinator to volunteer or to request more information about this opportunity.

Graduate Students

  • Regardless of which discipline you are studying, we welcome any and all grad students who would like to volunteer with us. Please visit our Meet the Board page and contact the coordinator of whichever branch(es) you are interested in volunteering with. Depending on the timing during the semester, you may also want to contact the Student Relations Officer to get on the schedule.
