Mickey Burt, D.C.
We’re always looking for new ways to serve you, and one of our latest is
an online public directory of alumni. This new feature on our website
allows anyone to look for a Palmer chiropractor in their community, or
to seek one where they’ll be vacationing or moving. All anyone needs
to do is go to www.palmer.edu and click on “Find a D.C.” at the top
of the home page. Please check your information to make sure it’s correct
and fill out our easy online form to update it if it isn’t. You can
read more about this fantastic service on page 21.
Additionally, we’re honoring our donors in a more public way on our
website. Just go to www.palmer.edu, click on the Alumni section, and
then click on the “Donor Recognition” link to see everyone in the
different groups who give back to Palmer and deserve our recognition
We’ve begun a new initiative we call our
Student 2 State Association
. We’re starting with the state associations in our top five
referring states for the Davenport campus: Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin,
Iowa and Pennsylvania. The objective of this program is to better connect
our students with the state associations so they’ll be more prepared for
practice in their chosen state. You can read about this great new program
on page 20.
We’re also structuring the alumni connection to the college. Each
state will have a state representative and a number of district representatives.
Using Iowa as an example, we’ll have one state representative
and 10 district representatives. All of these positions will be appointed
with three-year term limits. Our plan is to start with the top 20 states
(in terms of numbers of alumni) this year and then bring the other 30
states into the program next year, followed by the international alumni.
The past few months have been ones of transition and accomplishment
in the Alumni and Development areas at Palmer. With the retirement of
Mr. Robert Lee from the College, I’ve been overseeing the activities of
both the Alumni and Development offices. It’s exciting and rewarding to
see what we’ve been able to accomplish so far. But we couldn’t do it without
you. As always, thanks for all you do for Palmer and chiropractic.
