The Herald Journal Tuesday, Mar. 12, 2019
Almost a year after the Sorenson Legacy Foundation Center for Clinical Excellence opened at Utah State University, more changes are in store that are said to “better help the community” across a wide array of services. Bernice McCowin said it’s her goal to make sure the community knows of the services offered. While its Aggies Elevated program is just for students, the Sorenson Center has services designed to help almost everyone in the community, McCowin said. ...The Center for Clinical Excellence has brought together all the clinical services offered to adults, families and adolescents that used to be spread across campus. The center focuses on low-income and underserved minority populations with services such as speech and language therapy, nutrition counseling, marriage and family therapy and psychological services. According to Gretchen Peacock, executive director of the Sorenson Center, “The goal of the center is to foster and promote best practice services to individuals in the community. ... The center is the first of its kind in the Mountain West. “The integration of academic research and clinical service is unmatched, as USU students work with faculty who engage in clinical practice and perform cutting-edge research,” Peacock said.
