After more than 12 years of service to the College as executive director of alumni, Mickey Burt, D.C., F.P.A.C., Davenport ’73, retired from Palmer College in January.

“Serving the College in this capacity has been a real privilege,” Dr. Burt says. “However, with the demands of running a multi-doctor clinic, I decided to place all of my focus on patient care and the administration of the practice. I’ll miss serving the College and representing it all over the nation and the world, but it’s time to reduce my travel schedule and focus my energies on my practice and my family.”

Dr. Mickey Burt is well-known in the profession as one of the most successful chiropractors in the Midwest. The Burt Chiropractic Clinic, made up of Dr. Burt and his three sons, is a model often emulated by Palmer graduates. In addition to his practice, Dr. Burt is a Fellow in the Palmer Academy of Chiropractic. He serves on the boards of several community and professional groups, including the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress and the Chiropractic Knights.

“Given his professional responsibilities and his growing family, Palmer has been fortunate to keep him as long as we did,” says Dennis Marchiori, D.C., Ph.D., Palmer College chancellor and CEO. “We owe Mickey an enormous debt of gratitude for leading our alumni services for more than a dozen years. His energy, ideas, optimism and commitment have improved our program and inspired the Palmer community. I can’t say enough about how important his friendship and advice has been to me personally over the years. I know he’ll remain a vibrant member of the Palmer community.”
