Corporate Chiropractic Forum

Tuesday, February 25
6 - 8 p.m. in the Library

The “Corporate Chiropractic” panel session will focus on the growing trend (especially here in the Silicon Valley) of companies providing employees with the convenience of complimentary care via campus-based health centers – and at virtually each of these clinics, the scope of services includes chiropractic.

Our goal is to feature some of the D.C.s who currently practice at local companies that maintain onsite health centers – and it fills us with great “Palmer pride” that the majority of the doctors practicing in these positions are graduates of our campus! In particular, we’re interested in learning the steps of each doctor’s “chiropractic journey” that helped them achieve their current position as a corporate chiropractor.

Corporate Chiropractic Forum 2020 panel-members will include:

  • Joshua Bruce, D.C. (West ‘11/Crossover Health/On-site & Private practice)

Josh is a first-time Forum participant, and becomes the fourth of the six West alumni currently providing care as members of the Physical Medicine team at the Facebook Health Center to participate in a Palmer-related panel-program. If you include Dr. Dan Lord, who now holds a corporate-level position with Crossover, and participated in the first two Forums, the total is actually five.

  • Rhiannon Dickison, D.C., CCSP® (West ‘12/One Medical/On-site)
  • Vanessa Nordin, D.C., CCSP® (West ‘13/Crossover/Off-site & Private practice)
  • Kale Ptacek, D.C., CCSP® (West ‘14/CEO, Motiva Health)
  • Bill Updyke, D.C. (LifeConnections Health Center, Cisco Systems/Premise Health)
