Recap of the 2015 Chiro Games

Six teams from Logan recently traveled to Cocoa Beach, Florida to compete in the 2015 Chiro Games. Logan participated in soccer, golf, football, basketball, softball and sand volleyball.

Congratulations to the soccer team which finished second overall and the football team which placed fourth overall! Logan golfers Michael Suplicki and Joel Ardner each placed third in individual play.

Thank you to all the athletes and administration who helped make this year's Chiro Games a successful experience!

Logan Recognized by Paraquad

This year, Paraquad presented Logan University with the Shine the Light Award for its work in partnership with the organization over the past three years. The Shine the Light Awards highlight organizations and individuals whose actions promote a fully accessible community for people with disabilities and anyone who benefits from increased accessibility.

Dana Underkofler-Mercer, DC, MS, Associate Professor at Logan, initiated the partnership between Logan and Paraquad in 2012. By July 11, 2013, an on-site clinic was developed, and each trimester, a new rotation of Logan student interns has had the opportunity to provide hands-on chiropractic treatment to Paraquad members.

“I have a deep, genuine love for Paraquad, the staff and individuals we treat. I have shed tears there, jumped with joy and felt the true power of defeat as well as determination,” said Dr. Underkofler-Mercer. “This award is just a small symbol of Logan’s enormous commitment to help better the lives of people with disabilities by educating interns and faculty to care for such dynamic individuals in an integrated health care system.”

Kelley Humphries, DC, MS, LP, Fellow at Logan’s Human Performance Center, now leads the program.
Clay McDonald, DC, MBA, JD, and Dr. Underkofler-Mercer will accept the Shine the Light Award at an event on Nov. 4 at the Ritz-Carlton in St. Louis.
