Chapman University’s Stroke Boot Camp was held on campus last June and was the subject of a page-one feature in The Los Angeles Times, Tuesday, August 13, 2013. For stroke survivors, the 10-day boot camp is a chance to strengthen not just mind and body but also communal bonds.

“Like at any summer camp, people blossom, lose their fears, find strength they didn’t know they had and make new friends,” writes reporter Mary MacVean.

Now in its third year, the camp gives students in the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program at Chapman University a dose of clinical experience and provides stroke survivors intensive rehabilitation.
