Palmer’s Outreach Clinics provide a lifeline for hard times
Summer 2009


New alumni association is at your service

“There’s never been a better time to be a Palmer graduate than now,” said Executive Director for Alumni Mickey Burt, D.C., Davenport ’73, as he and other members of the Alumni Office introduced the new Palmer College of Chiropractic Alumni Association (PCCAA) this spring.

The PCCAA is an important part of Palmer College, with the Alumni Office having oversight responsibilities to ensure that the association’s programs give alumni the tools to be successful. This relationship allows for graduates to receive a variety of benefits without having to pay any dues.

The PCCAA’s guiding principles

“If you graduated from Palmer, regardless of whether you were in the D.C. or C.T. program, or one of its master programs, the PCCAA was created to serve you and all alumni from Palmer’s three campuses,” said Dr. Burt.

Inclusiveness is just one of the three “guiding principles” that were used to create the PCCAA, noted Dr. Burt. The second principle states that all programs and services developed for the PCCAA will be “service-oriented.” Whether you’re a chiropractor, a chiropractic technologist, a researcher, an educator or working in any other type of chiropractic career, the PCCAA will be there to help you succeed.

The third guiding principle is a goal to ensure that the PCCAA’s structure is mutually beneficial to alumni and Palmer College. For example, one program that has been part of Palmer since the mid 1990s, provides materials for doctors to participate in career fairs and talks, or simply display information in their office for prospective students.

Programs that serve you

The Alumni Office and the Alumni Advisory Council—a diverse group of Palmer alumni—have developed and are continuing to develop service-oriented and mutuallybeneficial programs for both alumni and Palmer College. Future PCCAA career-enhancing plans include cost-saving programs such as co-ops, credit cards or discounts with national companies.

In the coming months, the Alumni Office will be providing updates on the latest developments of the new alumni association. To help the Alumni Office staff to continue to help the PCCAA evolve, they would like to hear from you and other alumni.

Help us help you

“The only way the PCCAA can continue to grow and meet the needs of alumni now and in the future is for them to keep us current about the types of programs and services they’re looking for today and tomorrow,” said Dr. Burt.
