officially dedicated a new 13,000 square-foot educational wing on its suburban Chesterfield, Mo. campus at a special ribbon-cutting event held June 21 during the school’s annual homecoming.

Center as well as the creation of the Foot Levelers, Inc. Clinic and the Standard Process, Inc. Courtyard. Over the past five years, Logan has invested nearly $40 millions dollars toward modernization of its educational programs and 112-acre campus, located about 30 minutes west of downtown St. Louis.
Dr. George A. Goodman

During the formal ceremony, Dr. Epstein presented two special awards. Dr. William D. Purser, DC, an August 1953 graduate and major donor to the school, received the “Tower of Chiropractic” award. Dr. Debra Hoffman, a Sept. 1980 graduate and vice chair of the Logan Board of Trustees, was honored with the Logan Alumnus of the Year award for her service to the college.
The new Logan educational wing is a multi-level facility that features a state-the-art assessment center
