Ryan Klopfer is a student at Life University where he is pursuing a doctorate in Chiropractics, Masters in Exercise Physiology, as well as a fellowship in functional neurology through the Carrick Institute. He plans to educate the world around me about objective and evidence based health procedures that will enable each person to live to their optimal potential.
Ryan is a student ambassador for the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP). A program and service based non-profit founded in 2003 and based out of Jacksonville, Florida which works with post 9/11 veterans who have been injured physically or emotionally. They have 20 unique programs and services founded on the pillars of either mind, body, economic empowerment or engagement in an effort to holistically work with warriors and their family members. There are no dues or fees, ever, for warrior or caregiver participation. WWP feels those dues were paid on the battlefield. Currently, WWP has approximately 76,000 warriors in our database and 13,000 family members. WWP accepts no government funding and relies on the generosity of the American public and fundraising efforts like this golf tournament put on by the Life University Student Ambassadors group.
Post 9/11 statistics:
320,000 estimated TBIs
400,000 estimated with PTSD
