Corey Harrington email: firstname.lastname@example.org
My name is Corey Harrington and I am from Raleigh, NC. I chose to enter the chiropractic profession because I believe in natural, conservative care as a first option. Like other health professionals, chiropractic physicians have to balance their role as both a clinician and a businessman. In other words, the physician must be skilled in their art to help patients, but to ensure the delivery of these treatments they must also possess a minimum competency in the science of business. The Palmer Center for Business Development provides students with an opportunity to enrich their educational experience by gaining these additional skills.
