Celebrate Founder’s Day on the Davenport Campus - Sept. 18

9/17/2012 (Archived)

Celebrate Founder’s Day with historical displays and discussions on Tuesday, Sept. 18, from 9 a.m. to noon in the Skywalk with Alana Callender, Ed.D. and Julie Knaack. Light refreshments will be served. 

Also stop by Heritage Court, in front of the Palmer family busts, at 9:30 a.m. to hear a presentation from Chancellor Dennis Marchiori, D.C., Ph.D. 

Founder’s Day is considered the “birthday” of modern chiropractic. September 18, 1895, was designated to celebrate the first chiropractic adjustment performed by D.D. Palmer on Harvey Lillard. Celebrating this date offers the doctors and students of chiropractic a moment of reflection on the history of the profession and its beginnings. 

Also, Iowa Gov. Terry Brandstad has signed a proclamation making September 2012 Vertebral Subluxation Awareness Month.
