Lighting the Way for the future
Homecoming featured a special panel presentation, “Opportunities
and Challenges for Chiropractic in the Veterans’ Health Administration
and Other Multidisciplinary Settings.” Presenters included West
Campus graduates Terence Kearney, D.C., ’89, second from left, Kevin
Fogard, D.C., ’86, second from right, and David Paris, D.C., ’01. The
three provide chiropractic care either for active duty personnel or for
veterans. They are shown here with West Campus Dean of Clinics
Gregory Snow, D.C., West ’90, far left, and Dr. Meeker, center.
“Lighting the Way,” was the theme for the 2009 West Campus
Homecoming—a weekend full of great programs as well as
opportunities for graduates to reconnect that ignited alumni
with passion and pride. The annual event drew twice as many
alumni to San Jose in 2009 as it did in 2008.
“The momentum we’ve built through alumni participation in
the West Campus Homecoming programs of the last couple of
years is setting the stage for our new alumni association and for
building more effective community and professional relationships
that will benefit the profession’s practitioners,” said West
Campus President Bill Meeker, D.C., West ’82, M.P.H.
One of Homecoming’s noteworthy events was the 25-year
reunion dinner at the Hyatt Regency. Class of ’84 alumni
included Richard Ehret, D.C., William Haley, D.C., William
Hroziencik, D.C., Mary Johnson, D.C., Shawn Karimi, D.C.,
Eric Lundberg, D.C., Thomas Smith, D.C., and Susan St.
