Health Center Induction Ceremony

Health Center Induction Ceremony

Welcome to Logan University’s Virtual Health Center Induction Ceremony!

Induction into the Health Centers is a milestone within the Doctor of Chiropractic student journey at Logan. It is the point when Trimester 7 students have the opportunity to take knowledge learned in the classroom and apply it to patients in the clinical setting.

During this stage, Logan students fine-tune their adjusting techniques and communication skills. Peers become patients and faculty clinicians become mentors as they critique, guide, encourage and mold students into confident and professional, patient-centered chiropractors.

For most students, entering the Health Center is not just another course. It’s a period of transformation and self-discovery as students discover their unique talents and skills. It’s about integrating learned skills and abilities with patient care, understanding time management, how to balance their responsibilities as a doctor and a student, and finding that level of comfort with patients.

We welcome students as they take the next step in their academic journey to become Doctors of Chiropractic!

What does leadership mean to you? In general: forward-thinking, multi-faceted, informed approach to whatever it is that you do. At Logan specifically: we are life-long learners who happen to be experts in our respective fields, working to create the next generation of experts and life-long learners.

My favorite part about working at Logan is... The community atmosphere. I feel well-supported in my efforts to teach and support Logan students.

Hidden talent? I'm a long-time knitter.

Most people don't know that... I went to space camp twice as a kid because I wanted to be an astronaut.

What's your advice to incoming students? Maintain a healthy balance, whatever that means to you, between school and the rest of your life.

SABCA is the Students of the American Black Chiropractic Association. The American Black Chiropractic Association (ABCA) was founded in 1981 by Dr. Bobby Westbrooks, a practicing Chiropractor in St. Louis, Missouri, who had a vision to empower African American doctors and students in chiropractic. Dr. Westbrooks recognized that many African Americans were unfamiliar with the benefits of chiropractic care, and that chiropractic colleges struggled to attract minority students into their programs. This caused schools to continually have significantly low enrollment of African American students. He noticed that ultimately communities of color are underserved by the opportunities and benefits of chiropractic care. Dr. Westbrooks realized there was an immediate and ongoing need for minority supportive services in the chiropractic profession. The students of the ABCA provide community service by educating the uneducated and serving the underserved communities of predominantly black and brown people. 

SABCA’s mission statement is to recruit, encourage, and create advancements for people of color in the chiropractic profession. SABCA is a safe space for all and operates on the premise of diversity, education, and leadership.

What does Leaders Made mean to you? Leaders Made shows the commitment and drive of our Logan community to help our society to succeed in their health and wellness goals.  Not all leaders are not born that way … they are shaped, molded and given the skills to help transform their communities. We pride ourselves on that at Logan.

DC student Sydney Brangenberg has a passion for chiropractic at an international level, and getting involved with @wccs.logan & serving as the Americas West coordinator for @wccschiro gives her the chance to connect with chiropractic students and practitioners around the world. “I love how chiropractors are able to provide ways of maintaining wellness without pharmaceuticals, and it’s exciting to think that I can travel to another country and share my knowledge and care in a region where there aren’t many practitioners,” she said. Sydney will be completing her trimester 10 preceptorship in Scotland. Read more at logan.edu.
#ThrowbackThursday to Logan’s Outpatient Clinic at the Normandy Campus in the early 1960s. The clinic was a part of the Hugh B. Logan Memorial Building, which was dedicated in 1949 and was built under the direction of Dr. Vinton Logan, second president of Logan. 

More than 60 years later, Logan’s clinics continue to remain an integral part of the student curriculum. At the link in our bio, watch the latest group of DC students who were formally inducted into the Logan Health Centers yesterday and will go on to provide chiropractic care to the community.

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time to recognize their central role in U.S. history – past, present and future. It’s also a time to continue learning about and reflecting on the ongoing struggle for racial justice. In the St. Louis American article linked in our bio, read about how Logan grads Edgar Everett III, DC ('04); Xaivier Tipler, DC ('06) and Frank Vaught, DC ('04) work every day to lift up minority chiropractic students and physicians through Evoke Chiropractic Coaching.

What’s your advice to incoming students? Find your passion and follow your dreams.  The program is challenging; utilize the resources at Logan and build a network of support.

Why Logan? Besides its beautiful campus, Logan has a bright future. It has grown to create more opportunities for students to reach their goals and special interests, such as acupuncture or nutrition. This gives students the exposure to aspects of the healing arts in which they may have not considered. The chiropractic program is outstanding. I am so happy to be a part of teaching technique and skills for the students to excel as they develop into the doctor of chiropractic they dreamed of becoming. I am grateful to be a part of their education. 

Hidden talent? Cooking. I make a pretty good jambalaya. I also love to hike.

Today, she serves as the curriculum manager for the physical therapy program at @wustl_official in St. Louis where she continues to apply skills and real-world experience from her master’s degree. “I can confidently say that I wouldn’t be here today without my internship and experience through Logan. There is such demand for people with a background in sports science and rehab. My experience both at Logan and in my current job gives me the opportunity to have a voice in curriculum changes where I am making a difference for students based on job market demand.”
