Efforts to promote recent successes on the Davenport Campus have generated a great deal of positive media attention over the past few months.

On May 27, the Quad-City Times of Davenport featured an editorial that focused on Palmer’s commitment to Davenport, specifically to the downtown area, and featured quotes from Chancellor Larry Patten. The article pointed out Palmer’s capital campaign that was successfully completed in June, the new Palmer College of Chiropractic Academic Health Center and plans for the Palmer Center for Business Development as examples of the College’s commitment to growing and investing in Davenport.

Three days later, the Rock Island Argus/Moline Dispatch, another Quad- City newspaper, published an article on the Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research’s full-scale federally funded clinical trial on back-related leg pain. Principal Investigator Maria Hondras, D.C., M.P.H., and Executive Director for Research Christine Choate, D.C., Ph.D., were quoted and the article included information on the nature of the study, its funding and collaborative nature as well as the need for local patients to participate. On June 4, the Quad-City Times also ran a story about the back-related leg pain clinical trial.

Eighth Trimester Davenport Campus student Amy Mathis was one of a half-dozen speakers to address the press at the June 28 news conference that announced the successful completion of the Building the Future Fountainhead capital campaign. The event was held in the Welcome Center of the Palmer Academic Health Center in Pisciottano Hall.

The positive coverage continued following a news conference held June 28, announcing the successful completion of the capital campaign, which exceeded its $35 million fundraising goal, as well as the upcoming opening of the Palmer College of Chiropractic Academic Health Center on July 10. The news conference garnered coverage June 28 on KWQC-TV, WHBF-TV and WQAD-TV, along with articles on June 29 in both the Quad-City Times and the Argus/Dispatch.
