Parents as Chiropractors Club Supports Students with Children

Pursuing a doctoral program like Logan University’s Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) is a tremendous commitment. But earning an advanced degree while raising children presents an entirely separate and often competing set of challenges. “I moved to St. Louis from Tennessee to start the DC program at Logan somewhat last-minute,” said trimester 5 student Brittany Kidd. “When my husband and our son joined me during my first trimester, we struggled to find reliable child care because we were new to the area and didn’t know anyone.” Brittany threw herself into researching local day care facilities and other child care options all …

DC Student Takes Career Dreams to the Ice Rink

As National Hockey League (NHL) legend Wayne Gretzky once said, “You miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take.” For trimester 8 student Ashley Fox, one shot—or, in her case, one Instagram message—was all it took for her to realize her dream of working with professional hockey players. Ashley found a new way to network: social media. While scrolling through Instagram during her seventh trimester, she came across the profile of retired Boston Bruins player Jeff LoVecchio. Originally from St. Louis, Jeff now trains young, elite hockey players from the 18U AAA-NHL level. “He has over 11,000 followers on …

DC Student Learns from First-Class Chiropractors Through Preceptorship Program

Logan’s Preceptorship Program allows qualified Doctor of Chiropractic students in their 10th and final trimester to gain invaluable real-world experience in a clinical environment of their choice. For 15 weeks, students work alongside experienced chiropractic professionals in a variety of settings, helping them stand out in an increasingly competitive job market. Ahead of her graduation this summer, Shelby Hummel recently completed a preceptorship at Denver Sports Recovery, a state-of-the-art rehabilitation center that offers cutting-edge equipment, facilities and services to everyone from elite professional athletes to “weekend warriors.” “At the beginning of my 8th trimester, I reached out to Dr. Ralph …
