Logan University to Provide Chiropractic Care to St. Louis Community College Student-Athletes

Logan University is proud to announce its partnership with St. Louis Community College (STLCC), allowing Logan’s Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) interns to provide chiropractic consulting and care for its student-athletes.

“This partnership will provide Logan interns practical learning opportunities while providing STLCC student-athletes with additional treatment and care,” said Logan’s Associate Provost of the College of Chiropractic, Kristina Petrocco-Napuli, DC, MS, DHPE (’23), FICC. “Logan is proud to build this relationship with STLCC.”

In addition to chiropractic treatment and care, STLCC’s athletes will receive injury-related diagnostic and treatment services, nutritional counseling and more. STLCC athletes will also be able to receive additional care at Logan’s Sports and Rehabilitation Clinic, located at Logan’s Montgomery Health Center, free of charge.

“STLCC is thrilled to collaborate with Logan University to offer an exceptional student-athlete experience for our STLCC student-athletes,” said Sharon Marquardt, Athletic Director at STLCC. “This partnership not only enhances the collegiate journey for our athletes but also provides valuable hands-on learning opportunities for Logan students. We eagerly anticipate fostering a strong working relationship between our two colleges.”

Collaboration between higher education institutions allows the overall advancement of education, research, and societal development for both universities. It helps Logan students better develop their skills while helping the STLCC athletes enhance their performance and prevent injuries.

Logan interns will work with over 80 student-athletes on STLCC’s campus in various sports, including baseball, softball, soccer and basketball.

“Opportunities with local athletic programs and universities allow our students to grow their skills and promote the mission, vision, and values of Logan University,” said Logan Faculty Clinician and Assistant Professor, Quintin Murray, DC (’12), MS. “Our students are afforded opportunities to work the specific patient populations that interest them in unique ways and settings. They’re exposed to specific levels of inter-professional collaboration and are encouraged to practice the skills necessary to be a part of a healthcare team.”

This partnership is part of an ongoing effort to create meaningful partnerships with local organizations and provide expanded opportunities in integrated care for Logan students.
