Dr. Young’s goal: Connecting Palmer alumni

Making it easier for alumni to reconnect with Palmer is in Dr. Tom Young’s plans. A 2006 Florida Campus graduate, Dr. Young is the new Alumni Office representative for the Florida Campus, and a member of its faculty.

“Right now everything is still pretty new for me, but staying connected and networking with old school friends is something I really value,” says Dr. Young, who has earned his Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician certification and is involved with the Sports Council.

In August, Dr. Young attended the Davenport Campus Homecoming, where he had the chance to learn the ropes of his new position from Dr. Mickey Burt and Lisa Walden of the Alumni Office in Davenport.

“I’m looking forward to working with Dr. Burt and Lisa to help them promote the College and the profession,” says Dr. Young.

After graduating from Palmer, Dr. Young ran a practice in North Carolina for three years. But his desire to teach, coupled with an opportunity to be close to his family, prompted him and his wife, Maria Romano-Young, D.C., Florida ’06, to return to Port Orange. Dr. Maria Romano-Young is now a staff clinician at the Florida Campus Clinics.

Along with acting as a liaison between the campus and its alumni, Dr. Young looks forward to helping future Florida Campus graduates.

“I’d like to help current and future students connect with chiropractors in the field so they get the chance to learn about the dayto- day operations of running a practice,” he says. “It can provide perspective and real-life experience that allows for professional growth and development.”
