Anthony Lisi, D.C., West ’96, national director of chiropractic services for the Veterans Health Administration, was named the 2017 American Chiropractic Association Chiropractor of the Year . This is the ACA’s highest honor. Dr. Lisi guided efforts to establish the first federally funded chiropractic residency-training program in the VA, now in its third year. A number of Palmer graduates have been accepted into the residency program and some of them became staff chiropractors at VA facilities.

Palmer Homecoming events were held in August 2016 (Davenport campus), February 2017 (Florida campus) and May 2017 (West campus). A highlight of the Davenport Homecoming is the Alumni Luncheon, when new Fellows in the Palmer Academy of Chiropractic are inducted.
