Palmer College’s West Campus hosted its Homecoming 2007 program on Oct. 8-9, which gave more than 200 doctors and students a chance to “Look Inside” an array of facility enhancements and enjoy another exciting Homecoming experience.

“The energy level was high, the enthusiasm for chiropractic was high, and the prospects for flourishing at Palmer’s West Campus are very high,” said West Campus President William Meeker, D.C., M.P.H., West ’82. Homecoming 2007 was a particularly memorable event for Dr. Meeker, as it marked his first since being appointed president.

“This year’s theme (‘Look Inside’) was quite appropriate, as all the people with whom I spoke were impressed with facility enhancements to the West Campus, yet another example of the investment that Palmer College has made in California.”

Seminar speakers at Homecoming included Peter Fysh, D.C., above, whose session was titled “Adjusting the Pediatric Spine.”

Seminar speakers included John Davila, D.C., Davenport ’94; Peter Fysh, D.C.; Tom Hyde, D.C.; Lisa Killinger, D.C., Davenport ’83; Anthony Lisi, D.C., West ’96; Ian McLean, D.C., Davenport ’79; Dan Murphy, D.C.; and Maurice Pisciottano, D.C., Davenport ’89.

Approximately 40 people attended the prospective student event. In addition to traveling from within the state, PSE guests traveled from Canada, Indiana, Michigan, Washington—and Japan. “All in all, this was a very successful event,” said Julie Behn, West Campus enrollment director. “We doubled our prospective student attendance from last year. Also, those who attended the Prospective Student Event listed Palmer as their number one or number two choice of chiropractic colleges.”

Homecoming 2007 EXPO provided guests with an opportunity to learn about chiropractic products and services from representatives of more than one dozen companies.

The two-day event also featured a special breakfast to honor doctors who’ve participated in the field-training component of the West Campus Practice Development Quarter (PDQ) since the program was introduced in 1994. The PDQ program helps ease the students’ transition from graduate to doctor by featuring guest speakers on the various business aspects of practice management and providing a “field training” component to gain practical knowledge and “real world” experience.

This year’s Homecoming also included an entertaining array of social events, including Casino Night and the Gala Banquet. Held in the main ballroom of the Santa Clara Hyatt Regency, the dinner/dance concluded Homecoming 2007 and featured the soulful sounds of Silicon Vibe.
