General Information

New - Tips for staying healthy during cold and flu season

 We’re in the midst of cold and flu season, but there are some simple tips from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) that can help you stay healthy. Also, please refer to the Palmer College of Chiropractic communicable disease policy for more information.    

  • Flu-like symptoms include: fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. If you have a sudden onset of symptoms including fever, body aches and chills, don’t come to work or class.
  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people
  • If you’re sick with flu-like symptoms, the CDC recommends that you stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities. Your fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.
  • While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water aren’t available, use an alcohol-based hand rub
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Viruses spread this way
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with viruses like the flu.

    The application period is open for the July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016 Integrated Clinical Practice Residency

    The VA chiropractic Integrated Clinical Practice residency focuses on the provision of chiropractic care in an integrated healthcare system, collaborating with primary care, medical and surgical specialties, and other medical and associated health providers and trainees.

    The residencies provide advanced clinical training in complex case management, allowing recent graduates to increase their scope and depth of clinical knowledge, experience and acumen. Residents are mentored by senior VA chiropractors who are national leaders in integrated chiropractic practice. Residents also participate in interprofessional clinical rotations and scholarly activities. Residents develop their knowledge of hospital practice and procedures, and are better prepared for future positions in VA, other healthcare systems, and/or academic settings.

    Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research Launches 20/20/20 Campaign
    Palmer College of Chiropractic has kicked off it's first-ever campaign to support chiropractic research. The kick-off marks the 20th anniversary of the College's research effort. “Our goal is to encourage 20,000 chiropractors to give $20 per year in support of chiropractic research at Palmer,” said Palmer College of Chiropractic Vice Chancellor for Research and Health Policy Christine Goertz, D.C., Ph.D. “The College hopes to raise approximately $400,000 annually to support pilot studies and train future chiropractic researchers.”

    “Chiropractic research informs the education of our students and care of our patients,” said Palmer Chancellor Dennis M. Marchiori, D.C., Ph.D. “It opens policy doors and strengthens our profession. Innovative research and collaboration is essential to the future of chiropractic. We celebrate Palmer's significant contribution to chiropractic research and commit to an even greater impact in the future.”
