Logan University Recognized by the Arthritis Foundation



The Arthritis Foundation has recognized Logan University as a 2015 Corporate Honoree for its efforts in working with the Foundation to battle arthritis since 2007. Over the past nine years, Logan has raised more than $125,000 for the Foundation and has hosted the Walk to Cure Arthritis event on its campus since 2012.

"We are thrilled to be honoring Logan University and Dr. Robert Kuhn at the 35th Annual Silver Ball this December," said Jan Bignall, Area Vice President of the Arthritis Foundation in the Heartland Region. "With the help of Logan, the Arthritis Foundation continues to lead the fight for the arthritis community and help conquer everyday battles through life-changing information and resources, access to optimal care, advancements in science and community connections."

The Walk to Cure Arthritis is the Foundation’s annual community fundraising 5K walk event; nationwide, the event has raised more than $7.8 million toward finding a cure for arthritis, according to the foundation’s website.

Robert Kuhn, DC, DACBR, ART, who was instrumental in the partnership with the Arthritis Foundation, served as the Logan representative with the Arthritis Walk Committee from 2007 to 2012. In 2012, he became the volunteer event chairman and began hosting the Arthritis Walk on Logan’s campus.

Martha Kaeser, DC, MEd, Director of Academic Assessment, has succeeded Dr. Kuhn as the chair of the Walk to Cure Arthritis in St. Louis. “The award is a symbol of our commitment and passion for service to the local community as well as a great way for us to partner with an organization that supports chiropractic as part of the integrated health care team providing patient care to people with arthritis,“ she said.

Dr. Kuhn will accept the award on behalf of Logan at the Foundation’s 35th Annual Silver Ball gala on Dec. 5 in St. Louis.
