Intern Scott Self, 11th Quarter, leads a group tour at the Open House.
City officials, local chiropractors, members of the media, current
and former patients, and area citizens gathered on Jan. 20 for the
Palmer Clinic’s Open House. The event showcased the newly
renovated clinic and provided an opportunity for students, staff
and faculty to introduce visitors to Palmer College and educate
them on chiropractic care.
“I’m so glad I came,” said a visitor. “The clinic is beautiful and
your students are absolutely wonderful.”
Dean of Clinics Al Luce, D.C., believes the new environment
has had “an uplifting effect” on everyone at the Clinic, adding,
“It demonstrates Palmer’s commitment to the community and
Clinicians and interns provided tours of the modernized facility,
including the patient registration area and treatment modules.
Several also gave demonstrations of the techniques and tools
used in chiropractic treatments.
“I really like these types of events,” said Scott Self, an 11th
Quarter student. “It’s exciting to make people aware of
chiropractic for the first time and to show off our new clinic.”
Pride in the “new” clinic was the theme of the day as staff and
faculty interacted with guests and each other. Said Director of
Institutional Support George Bertish, M.B.A., “This was an
opportunity for those on the academic side to join clinic staff in
coming together as one and represent Palmer to the community.”
The Open House was further energized by the live remote radio
broadcast from the Palmer Clinic of the Marc Bernier Show.
City officials, college and clinic administrators and clinicians all
had a turn in being interviewed by Bernier during the event.
