Staying in touch with alumni is an important part of Palmer’s Alumni Office. That’s why Assistant Director of Alumni Lisa Walden and I log a lot of miles each year to visit the same events that you and other Palmer graduates are attending.

On a number of these trips we’re accompanied by Dr. Tom Milus from the West Campus or Dr. Ed Pappagallo from the Florida Campus. Their input and hard work make it possible for us to be a resource on all three campuses and allow us to attend association events from Florida to British Columbia, Canada.

This winter’s Palmer Destination Success Continuing Education Cruise gave us, as well as College administrators, faculty and staff, a wonderful new setting in which to sit down and talk to alumni. The more we understand the needs of our alumni, the better we’ll be at providing you with the programs that meet your needs.

For those of you who haven’t had a chance to meet with the Alumni Office, we encourage you to visit On the “Alumni” home page, click on “Contact the Alumni Office” and you’ll instantly have the opportunity to ask questions about the new alumni program or tell us your latest accomplishments.

Plus, by providing us with your e-mail address, we can notify you when our office and the Development Office will be traveling to a town near you. It also allows us to update you on the latest Palmer news through Palmer Highlights, the twice-amonth e-blast.

One area in which Palmer has consistently made the news is research. Check out this issue’s cover story to find out about the breakthrough chiropractic research being conducted by Palmer College through the Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research as well as by faculty clinicians on all three campuses. Palmer is carrying out the type of research that chiropractors can use every day in their practices.

Palmer is also taking the lead in providing chiropractic students the entrepreneurial skills they will need as chiropractors through the Palmer Center for Business Development. For a story on this innovative program, the first of its kind at any chiropractic college, turn to page 5.

To find out firsthand what’s going on at Palmer, I encourage you to attend Homecoming at a Palmer campus near you. You can register online at This year’s theme is “Our Time is Now.” Talk with faculty, staff and students. See the advancements Palmer is making in research and in providing students with the tools they need to succeed. If there was ever a time to be proud of what our alma mater is doing, that time is now.
