As the primary care professionals for spinal health and well-being, it is the mission of Palmer College to promote learning, deliver health care, engage our communities and advance knowledge through research. During the 2013 Florida Homecoming, this mission was accomplished.
With weather conditions relatively cooler than normal, the more than 300 participants experienced the warm hospitality and shared in the knowledge provided by Palmer’s staff, speakers and alumni at Homecoming 2013, held March 1-3 on the Florida Campus. A capacity crowd heard Palmer College Chancellor Dennis Marchiori, D.C., Ph.D., kick off the event with a presentation on "Increasing Cultural Authority through Palmer’s Identity."
The chiropractic pillars espoused by Palmer College were clearly in evidence throughout the three days with continuing education sessions focused on the modern chiropractic practice, nutrition, low back stabilization, adjustment techniques, concussion evaluation and the use of electro diagnostics in chiropractic practice.
Special events were highlighted by the President’s Reception, hosted by Florida Campus President Peter Martin, D.C., and the class of 2008 five-year reunion, both held at the world-famous Daytona International Speedway. The Florida Campus Student-Centered campaign reception and the Saturday Night Finale were both held on campus in the Standard Process Student Center.
The Florida Homecoming was sponsored by long- time supporters Standard Process, NCMIC, Performance Health, Biofreeze, Thera-Band and Prossage. Other exhibitors included Biotics Research Corporation, Foot Levelers, Palmer Imaging Consultation Services (PICS) and the Markson Connection.
