The Fall 2015 Tower is out now!
This edition includes a look at veterans finding Logan through service, a profile on the new Logan Student Government, extending chiropractic care to the underserved and much more!
Dr. Ross Mattox, a 2007 Logan graduate, has been appointed to the position of clinician within Logan’s newest integrated health center, located within the Myrtle Hilliard Davis Comprehensive Health Center (MHD) in St. Louis. Dr. Mattox has worked for Logan over the past four years first as a Radiology Resident then as a Fellow in Diagnostic Imaging. Before coming to Logan in 2011, Dr. Mattox was in private practice in the State of Kentucky.
Dr. Mattox takes over a clinical site that began in January of this year under the direction of Dr. Barry Wiese, Director of Integrated Health Centers. The clinic has grown substantially over the last nine months and now sees an average of 400 patient visits per month on a full schedule of five days per week.
Dr. Wiese spoke about Dr. Mattox and his new role:
“The demand for our services has increased every month since we started this clinic in January. Dr. Mattox was very well trained as a diagnostician during his tenure in Logan’s Radiology department, and he comes well-equipped to handle the level of patient complexity typically seen at MHD. He not only brings a high level of experience and training but a strong desire to build on the quality of care and clinical education within this site. This clinic and our interns are in very good hands.”
Logan interns have the opportunity to rotate through this clinic each trimester, one of many integrative opportunities that exist for Logan students in the clinical phase of their education.
Dr. Houston has been educating a wide variety of health professionals for many years, first in her role as Co-Director of the Master of Health Sciences program at Washington University School of Medicine and more recently as Professor and Director of two programs at Fontbonne University: Health Education & Promotion and Dietetics.
She notes that “the DHPE program at Logan University is positioned to give health professionals practical tools in order to become outstanding educators. By doing so, health professional educators will prepare tomorrow’s practitioners to be patient centered and to deliver evidence-based practice, thus advancing quality health care well into the 21st century.”
