Diversity forum returns to Davenport Campus

four diverse individuals

The Davenport Campus Admissions Department held the second annual Diversity in Chiropractic Forum April 26-27. Forty people, including prospective students and their guests, attended the event.

Fourteen alumni participated in the panel discussions and presentations, including Davenport Campus graduates: Che Joplin, D.C., ’99; Alejandro Badillo, D.C., ’73; Cecil Forbes, D.C., ’05; Kenya Gaskin, D.C., ’99; Doug Campbell, D.C., ’01; Stanley Sims, D.C., ’99; Darell Andrews, D.C., ’07; Kendall Wilson, D.C., ’05; Director of Diagnosis & Radiology Lisa Killinger, D.C., ’83; and Davenport Campus President Donald Kern, D.C., ’58.

Students Rick Worley and Princely Ebwe were also on the panel discussions as well as Logan College of Chiropractic graduate Rodney Williams, D.C. Dwight Bailey, Psy.D., spoke about the Palmer Center for Business Development. Kelan Ritchie, Admissions, coordinated the event. Monday evening was capped off with a performance by the band Funktastic 5 at the Redstone Room in downtown Davenport.

Mr. Ebwe, a student from the west central African nation of Cameroon, gave the welcome address. He spoke about what it’s been like for him and his wife, Eromata (who also is a student), to immerse themselves in chiropractic as well as in a new country.

“The event was great,” said Mr. Ritchie. “I think we are getting close to making inroads with many minority students. One prospective student told me he was ‘star-struck’ and couldn’t wait to become a student at Palmer.”
