The 2009 Association of Chiropractic Colleges/Research Agenda Conference (ACC-RAC) was held March 12-14 in Las Vegas, Nev. With the theme “Innovations,” the event featured college committee meetings, plenary sessions, platform presentations, panel discussion groups and poster presentations along with a variety of vendors. This year’s event was orchestrated by ACCRAC Conference Coordinator Robyn Patkus and boasted more than 400 registrants.

“Presentation topics were diverse and enlightening,” said Dr. Laurie Mueller of the Palmer Continuing Education Department. Participants enjoyed topics on reform in clinical education, research on complimentary medicine, inter-professional education and the future of health care, to name a few.

Dr. Mueller has chaired the ACC Post-Graduate Subcommittee since 2003, and for the past two years, Palmer College has reached out to help the ACC-RAC event through the administration of continuing education credits for attendees. It also has sent staff members to aid in the event implementation process.

Staff members Administrative Assistant/Applications Sharon Whitney and Event Coordinator Tricia Jestel travelled to ACCRAC for support service in both 2008 and 2009. “It’s vital that colleges don’t lose sight of the profession as a whole,” said Dr. Mueller. “We’re proud that Palmer has been able to step forward and help support the important work of ACC-RAC.”
