When we created Insights in 2006 to serve the graduates of all three Palmer campuses, we decided to expand on the traditional alumni magazine format to include the information you need to make the most of your career. We made it a priority to include articles that relate to success stories, developments in the healthcare arena, career and practice opportunities, and opportunities to support the College. Take a look at this issue and you’ll see our focus hasn’t changed.

One of the benefits of success stories—whether they come from alumni, students or the College—is that they remind practicing chiropractors of the importance and value of their everyday work. Turn to the Davenport Campus section to learn about 87-year-old John Bottorff Sr., D.C., ’55, who continues to practice 20 hours a week, sometimes making house calls. In the Florida Campus section, student Jesse Hodges outlines his own plans for success.

Staying on top of the latest chiropractic research or important practice management information can be a challenge for anyone in the field. That’s why we provide updates on the latest developments in the chiropractic profession. Page 2 provides coverage of three different integrative healthcare studies in which Palmer is involved. It is followed by a story about U.S. Representative Bruce Braley’s drive to make chiropractic available in underserved areas of the country.

A busy schedule also can make it difficult to keep tabs on the multitude of career choices available out there, or to search for or fill a job posting. A story on page 4 tells how the Palmer Center for Business Development is proving to be a valuable resource for both future and recent graduates.

Making sure that programs like these continue to enable Palmer students and alumni to accomplish their goals requires support. In the West Campus section, learn how the generosity of a graduate who passed away in 2006 lives on for deserving West Campus students. Or flip to the ad on the back cover and find out how easy it is to support Palmer College another way—by recruiting students. The Alumni Office is now making available a free electronic presentation on chiropractic that you can use in your office, or load onto a laptop computer and take on the road. It’s also great for informing new patients about chiropractic.

Whether you read Insights in print or online, when you consider your career goals and the information we provide to help you with those objectives, we think you’ll see that we’re all on the same page.
