Palmer increases sponsorship and participation in Quad Cities Go Red for Women

11/16/2010 (Archived)

Palmer College and the Palmer Chiropractic Clinics have sponsored the American Heart Association’s annual Quad Cities Go Red for Women event for several years, but this year the Palmer Chiropractic Clinics were the event’s “Heart to Heart” sponsor, which is just one level below the highest level of “Presenting Sponsor.” This meant the Palmer Clinics had increased participation in the Nov. 4 event, including providing one of the breakout session speakers, being mentioned numerous times from the podium, having a flier in the bags and several ads in the program, participating in the fundraising announcement and having a chiropractic information booth at the vendor fair. In addition, Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research Program Coordinator Lori Byrd was one of the “passion speakers” and spoke of her own experience with heart surgery. Interim Vice President for Academic Affairs Dan Weinert, D.C., M.S., spoke on “Refueling for Fitness” during one of the two breakout sessions.
