Student-run health clinic fills critical need for foot care

Rosie Booker said she is ticklish, but nonetheless appreciates the health clinic run by St. Louis University medical students, including Jackson Toth, who talked with her while caring for her feet. Routine care includes foot washing and evaluation, nail clipping and callous sanding, with referrals made for advanced needs.

Rosie Booker took a bus, then walked to the Health Resource Center Foot Health Clinic at St. Anthony's Food Pantry in south St. Louis.

She understands the need to take care of her feet because she's often walking to go shopping or to appointments. Besides, she said, "walking is good for you."

SLU initiative at jail removes barriers to success

Joseph Jones, a maintenance technician at the St. Louis Medium Security Institution, stopped by a McDonald's for lunch Nov. 8 to find one of the graduates of the St. Louis University Transformative Justice Initiative working there.

A bishop’s efforts led to origins of St. Louis University

St. Louis University was located in this building at Washington and Ninth Streets in Downtown St. Louis until moving to its current campus in 1888.

St. Louis University grew from a few dozen students in a rented house to 13,000 students on campuses in St. Louis and Madrid, Spain.

Bishop Louis William DuBourg founded the university in 1818 as St. Louis Academy. It was considered the first institution of higher learning west of the Mississippi.

Housed in a private residence near the Mississippi River, it later was known as St. Louis College.

Alli Klug, Mary Niehaus and Molly Ream played all 110 minutes. Courtney Reimer logged 106 minutes. Niehaus, a goalie, made a career-high eight saves, six of which came in the second half and first overtime.

The Next Chapter

Back in the day, retirement planning seemed largely non-existent or rudimentary at best.

Most folks went to work Friday for a cake send-off, then clocked out forever. End of story — except many people woke up in a panic the following Monday, wondering, "What am I going to do now!?"

The St. Louis University Office of Mission and Identity will help answer that question, with a new program designed specifically for soon-to-be retirees or recent retirees.
