on a portion of a documentary Mr. Koo is producing for
a Korean TV network.
A television producer from MBC-TV in Seoul, Korea, and a recent Palmer
graduate from Korea who practices in Atlanta visited the Davenport Campus
Oct. 3-8. Their mission was to interview faculty, staff, students and patients
for a documentary on posture and the biomechanics of the spine that was
recently aired nationally in Korea. Producer Pan Jung Koo and consultant
Young Choi, D.C., Davenport ’07, filmed in classrooms, the Academic
Health Center, the Research Center and other parts of campus, and interviewed
nearly 20 people.
“Currently, chiropractors in Korea are required to provide care under the
supervision of a medical doctor,” said Dr. Choi. “It is my hope that this
production will advance chiropractic in Korea as a scientific, credible and
beneficial healthcare discipline.”
Media Relations Manager Lori Leipold coordinated the interview schedule
and accompanied Dr. Choi and Mr. Koo during their visit. “Everyone
at Palmer participated enthusiastically in this important project,” she said.
“This production has the potential to positively impact the future of
chiropractic in Korea for years to come.”
