5/15/2013 (Archived)

The Michigan Association of Chiropractors (MAC) Convention took place May 3-5 in Kalamazoo, Mich., and Palmer was present and accounted for. Palmer College of Chiropractic Chancellor Dennis Marchiori, D.C., Ph.D., spoke to a group of 20 potential future chiropractors during the Friday night prospective student event. During the Palmer alumni luncheon, 135 people were in attendance.

“The MAC Convention and the Palmer luncheon were fantastic,” said Brian Arnold, D.C. (Davenport ’82).

Said Executive Director for Alumni Mickey Burt, D.C., “We are so pleased with the turnout. It was an extremely successful event. We love reconnecting with our alumni and finding out what is going on with them and how they are succeeding in their practices and lives.”

In other MAC news, “in an historic victory for the chiropractic profession, the Michigan Court of Appeals (COA) ruled that the Michigan Association of Chiropractors lawsuits against Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (BCBSM) and Blue Care Network (BCN) could move forward as class action lawsuits. The case, COA Docket No. 304736, was signed by Judges E. Thomas Fitzgerald, Patieck Meter, and Michael Kelly.”
