Ceremony Program

When Jessica Randolph, MS (’08), EdD was looking to advance her career, she turned to Logan’s Master’s in Sports Science & Rehabilitation for quality and versatility. 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.”
In continuing to celebrate our incredible faculty members, get to know April 1990 Logan grad turned associate professor, Kelly Brinkman, DC, MCS-P, CPCO: 

What is the best part of teaching? Helping students to connect the facts as they learn clinical reasoning and listening to their excitement about wanting to help people.

Most people don’t know that… I worked on a volunteer medical team for a Sundance ceremony on the Pine Ridge Reservation.

Next up on the bucket list? I want to visit Oak Island, Nova Scotia

What does leadership mean to you? Professionalism and commitment to one's profession while being a lifelong learner. #LeadersMade #LoganUniversity

At Logan University, we’re proud of our highly-trained, diverse faculty of renowned clinicians and researchers. To get to know them better and recognize them for their dedication, we’ll be spotlighting various faculty members on our social pages. First up: Atanas Ignatov, PhD, associate professor and program director of basic science.

What does leadership mean to you? Leadership is the wind in the sails of others to reach their full potential.

Favorite classroom memory? During a lecture, I was afflicted by a bout of “the giggles.” It must have been contagious because the whole class started giggling.

Favorite place you’ve traveled and why? I immigrated to the U.S. Coming to America was the greatest “trip” I’ve ever taken – it changed my life!

Hidden talent? Falling asleep when my kids need help with school projects.

Thank you, Dr. Ignatov, for making a difference! #LeadersMade #LoganUniversity
Through our Preceptorship Program, qualified Logan University Doctor of Chiropractic students spend their final trimester working in their dream scenario--at a pediatric clinic, a family practice or a hospital, for example--gaining experience in a busy clinical atmosphere with complex patient cases. The end result? Our students are set up for success and graduate practice-ready in a competitive job market. At the link in our bio, read more about our Preceptorship Program and why many students choose Logan over other chiropractic colleges because of it. 

Pictured above: Dr. Christen Saccucci (center) during her preceptorship with Drs. Nicholas Kampfer (’14) and Emma Minx (’15) of Advanced Care Specialists in Racine, Wisconsin.
Here’s hoping 2021 includes many more sunrises like this one. Happy New Year!
“Scholarships have the ability to impact the recipient as well as the lives of their families and members of their communities. In my case, my scholarship is the reason I will be able to complete my degree and dedicate my time toward enhancing another’s quality of life through chiropractic care,” said Huxlande Petigny, 2020 scholarship recipient. 

2021 scholarship applications are now open for Logan students! Learn more & apply at the link in our bio.

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Logan alum Dr. Richard Cutting has seen chiropractic care change the lives of numerous patients--beyond improving their acute pain--at his practice, Cutting Edge Chiropractic, in Tolland, Connecticut. Read the full story at the link in our bio.
Interested in pursuing research? Logan faculty and staff are here to help! Recent DHPE graduate Dr. Maurya Cockrell completed a research study with the support and technical assistance of Logan's faculty and staff while working toward her degree. In fact, her study, which worked to identify whether or not elderspeak was evident in simulated provider-patient encounters in a chiropractic education program, was published in the Journal of Gerontology and Geriatric Medicine earlier this year.
Jacob Kornetzke, DC ('17), MS ('16) became a chiropractor after watching chiorpractic care transform his mother's health. After graduating from Logan, he moved back to his home state of Wisconsin and now works at Creekside Performance Center. “Creekside has been an amazing place to work. We see a wide variety of patients every day, but our niche is in the sports rehabilitation area,” said Dr. Kornetzke. “This is great for me because on a daily basis I’m able to use a lot of my certifications and skills in an area that I’m really passionate about.” Head to the link in our bio to read the full story in the fall issue of The Tower!
As leaders of an academic health care institution, it is our duty to create a safe environment and make responsible decisions that protect and safeguard well-being of all members of the Logan community. While we were hoping that by now we could celebrate commencement in person, we are certainly committed to providing a memorable ceremony to recognize and celebrate this monumental achievement with our students. Please tune in to our virtual commencement ceremonies on December 19 and join us in celebrating our College of Chiropractic and College of Health Sciences graduates!

With Logan's Master of Science in Nutrition & Human Performance (MSNHP) program under her belt, Caitlyn Sheppard was well-suited to enroll in the first class of Logan's MSHNP - Registered Dietitian Concentration. In addition to enjoying the curriculum and the University's focus on holistic health, Caitlyn said the MSNHP program prepared her to analyze patient diets and health status, assess nutritional deficiencies and food allergies, and provide evidence-based nutrition and lifestyle guidance, to name a few. Now on our blog, read about Caitlyn's journey of pursuing her dream to become a registered dietitian, and why she chose Logan University to do so.
Brittany Kasprack, DC ('15), MS ('15) is the owner and founder of Mid South Chiropractic, with four locations in North Mississippi. On her time at Logan dual-enrolled in both the Doctor of Chiropractic and Master's in Sports Science & Rehabilitation programs, Dr. Kasprack says: 
 
"My time at Logan empowered me to achieve my current day success by not only giving me the skills and experience I needed to have a successful career but also instilling the passion and confidence it takes to go forth and conquer! My time at Logan was full of challenges, wins and defeats, both in and out of academics. My Logan crew became family, and the relationships I formed are something I will forever cherish. Logan equipped me with everything I needed to take my passion for chiropractic and share it with the world. My dream expands well beyond where I am today- I am just getting started. My mission is to truly expand and grow chiropractic into the first choice for wellness and health care! Here in North Mississippi, we are making a major impact on the health of our community, and this is just the beginning; we will change thousands more lives through chiropractic care. Oh, and to all of the female docs out there: Let no one question your ability to achieve the success you want in the clinic or in business. You are powerful, underestimated and fierce."
 
Dr. Kasprack participates in the Logan Preceptorship and master's internship program and is always looking for associate doctors to help expand chiropractic and change more lives.
Support your future success through scholarship. Applications for spring 2021 DC scholarships will open December 15; preview the available scholarships at the link in our bio and begin preparing your submissions today!
