In February of 2019, alumni from across the country gathered in tropical Montego Bay, Jamaica to soak up sun and enjoy five days of luxury on the Palmer Alumni Travel Event. Each year, alumni eagerly look forward to the announcement of the annual outing’s destination – a four to seven-day adventure alternating between land-based and cruise-based trips. The event is a time for alumni to get together outside of the usual educational conferences and meetings and offers exclusive vacation opportunities for Palmer graduates.

Travelers have the option to earn continuing-education credits as well. This year’s presenter, Lora Tanis, D.C., DICCP (Main, ’89), focused on family and pediatric care during the 12 hours of in-person, interactive training sessions. She noted, "Chiropractic is an integral part of everyone’s long-term health and wellness. My goal is to have more families realize how important that care is from pregnancy and birth through old age. The travel event is a time to share insights and miracles of practice with your Palmer ‘family,’ and it’s a great time to re-energize your battery with like-minded and like-focused people to become a better clinician."
In addition to vacation alumni events, the Palmer Alumni Office plans multiple social gatherings around the country throughout the year. To learn more about Homecoming reunion weekends at all three campuses and upcoming alumni social events in your area, visit www.palmer.edu/alumni.
