Logan Around the World: Fall 2018

November 26, 2018 -- The University’s influence has always extended far beyond the Chesterfield campus, and this fall saw a flurry of travel among members of the Logan community. 

London, England 

In October, several members of the Logan faculty and administration hopped the pond to attend the World Federation of Chiropractic’s Education Conference in London. Logan President and Chair of the Association of Chiropractic Colleges Dr. Clay McDonald served as a moderator during a panel presentation. Melinda Turner, DC presented an abstract on the Doctorate of Health Professions Education program and teaching residency, in which she collaborated with Cheryl Houston, PhD, CHES and Martha Kaeser, MEd, DC. 

Logan Professor Kristina Petrocco-Napuli, DC, MS, FICC gave two presentations. The first was on the necessity of enhancing pediatric chiropractic education. “We wanted to bring this issue to the forefront, because there tends to be a lack of pediatric training in academic institutions,” Dr. Petrocco-Napuli said. “If you have a family chiropractic practice, there is a strong chance you will see a pediatric patient, and when there is no formal training, that can be scary, especially for a new practitioner.” 

Dr. Petrocco-Napuli also presented a workshop in collaboration with two chiropractors from New York Chiropractic College on cultural competency in the academic clinic setting. “It’s becoming increasingly important to look at the expectations of different cultures when they come in for treatment,” she said. “Some cultures bring family members into the room for support, for instance, and females from some cultures may not be able to be touched by a male practitioner. Students need to be aware of this and know how to ask questions about things like gender, too.”

A poster on the effect of chiropractic intern practice perceptions in the utilization of evidence-based care was presented by Dr. Petrocco-Napuli on behalf of Vincent DeBono, DC, CSCS, Dean of Logan’s College of Chiropractic.

Havana, Cuba 

In November, Dr. DeBono and Patrick Battaglia, DC, DACBR, clinician and assistant professor, visited Cuba to lecture at the Institute of Sports Medicine’s annual conference, which attracts attendees from all over the world. This was the second year Logan faculty were invited to speak. Dr. DeBono presented on blood flow restriction training, while Dr. Battaglia presented on musculoskeletal ultrasound in the diagnosis of hip and pelvic complaints in athletes. “This was an opportunity to share our expertise with Cuba’s sports medicine department—they do a lot of ultrasound, because MRI use is limited,” Dr. Battaglia said.
