Parker University Partnership with Arthritis Foundation

On May 9th, 2015 Parker University will be partnering with the Arthritis Foundation to co-sponsor the Walk to Cure Arthritis. This historic partnership with the Arthritis Foundation and Parker University will benefit the university, the association, the profession and most importantly those who suffer from arthritis. Parker’s participation in the Walk to Cure Arthritis is proof that the university supports this groundbreaking relationship and we hope to establish annual participation in the WTCA. as an adjunct to the Parker Serves outreach to the DFW community. Also, this will be a great way for you to promote your practice and participate in an activity that will be fun and immensely rewarding.


Serving with the Alumni Board of Directors

There are many ways to serve with Parker: the Alumni Ambassadors Program, After Hours events, the Parker Serves annual event, Mentoring and many other opportunities! One of the best ways to serve is to participate in the Alumni Board of Directors. Participating in the board gives you direct insight into Parker University, a chance to work directly with fellow alumni, and the opportunity to make a real difference to Parker's mission.

New board members begin their terms in September. Positions open annually.
