We are saddened to learn that Dr. Amanda Peterson, April 2010 graduate, was shot in Las Vegas while attending the Rt. 91 Harvest Festival along with many other innocent victims. She is currently in stable condition in the intensive care unit at Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center in Las Vegas.
Dr. Sheila Decker, August 2010 graduate, has started a Go Fund Me page to assist with medical expenses. She is keeping this page updated with the latest information about Dr. Peterson’s condition.
The Logan Community sends positive thoughts and well wishes to Dr. Peterson, and all of the victims and their families during this very difficult time.

Hurricane Maria had a devastating effect on our neighbors in Puerto Rico. The infrastructure of the island, the cost to rebuild and the lives disrupted will be an ongoing struggle for many months to come.
Logan was scheduled to attend the 2017 COCSA Convention (Congress of Chiropractic State Associations) in San Juan, Puerto Rico, the first week of November. Due to the current situation, we will no longer be attending. Instead, Logan will donate from the anticipated costs to attend to the hurricane relief fundraisers held by both Logan students and St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina.
Logan will donate $1,000 to the student fundraiser and $1,000 to the fundraiser hosted by the Molina family. Our thoughts are with those affected, and with those who help to provide relief in times of crisis.
