Palmer’s Alumni Office has developed the
Student 2 State Association Program to
help students connect with the state associations
where they plan to practice. The initial goal is to
connect with the top-five referring states to Palmer’s
Davenport campus: Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin,
Iowa and Pennsylvania.
The Davenport campus has hosted groups from the
Ohio State Chiropractic Association, the Pennsylvania
Chiropractic Association, the Chiropractic Society of
Wisconsin and the Wisconsin Chiropractic Association.
The Iowa Chiropractic Society often visits the
Davenport campus and is supportive of this program.
The San Jose campus has hosted a group from the
Washington State Chiropractic Association.
Each visit includes a campus tour, lunch with administrators,
faculty and student leaders, and a
Q&A session with students interested in practicing
in that state.
“Several state association executives came to us
and asked how they could help us better orient
our students to practice in their states,” says Executive
Director of Alumni Mickey Burt, D.C.
“That was the catalyst for this new program. Each
state has its own unique culture, and that’s where
these relationships can help our students become
more successful in practice.”
