“The knowledge I gained in the DHPE program has put me in a unique position to engage throughout Salt Lake Community College. I have had the privilege to step outside my program and assist others with things such as faculty development and curriculum design. If I ever decide to move on from a teaching role, I can see myself moving into an administrative position where I can do more of this. It is nice knowing that, if decide to pursue this, I have the opportunity to do so with the DHPE.” -Dr. Angela Belnap, 2019 graduate of Logan’s Doctorate of Health Professions Education program. Read her story at the link in our bio.

We are eternally grateful to America's veterans for their bravery and sacrifice. Thank you to all those who have served, especially those near and dear to our hearts in the Logan community.

DYK? #VeteransDay is celebrated annually on the 11th of November because World War 1 ended on the 11th month on the 11 day on the 11th hour.
Nearly 20% of Americans suffer from chronic pain, including 65% of veterans. Additionally, veterans are two times more likely than non-veterans to die from accidental overdoses of highly addictive painkillers, according to the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress. But there is hope: Doctors of Chiropractic are uniquely poised to provide safe, effective and drug-free care, and the presence of chiropractors within Veterans Affairs facilities is growing throughout the U.S.--including right here in Logan's backyard.

Trimester 10 DC student Kevin Meyer is currently completing his preceptorship at the St. Clair County VA Clinic in Shiloh, Illinois. On the blog, check out what Kevin has to say about his experience caring for these heroes. #linkinbio
Dr. Lynn Vitale, 2012 Logan University graduate, was recently recognized by the City of St. Peters for her Random Act of Kindness of creating and maintaining a “Blessing Box” in St. Peters. The box, located outside her practice, Core Chiropractic & Acupuncture, is filled with non-perishable food and personal care items by people who are able to give. These essential items are available for others in the community when they are in need.

At Logan, Doctor of Chiropractic students are exposed to more clinical opportunities earlier in their education than any other chiropractic program. By trimesters 7 and 8, students begin treating patients under the supervision of faculty clinicians at one of Logan's outpatient health centers, like student Connor Bradley pictured here at our Montgomery Health Center.

✨ Did you know that the American Black Chiropractic Association was founded in 1981 in St. Louis, Missouri by Dr. Bobby Westbrooks. Dr. Bobby Westbrooks graduated from Missouri Chiropractic College (now known as @loganuniversity) in 1966.

**pictured is the bust of Dr. Bobby Westbrooks donated by @lccsabca & ABCA at the 2018 convention held in Chesterfield, MO that can be viewed in the Purser Center at Logan University**

🎉Since then, we have celebrated every year in June with a National Convention in various cities. 

Our National Convention offers CEUs 📚, networking opportunities 🤝, and a chance to immerse yourself in a diverse community ✊🏾.
