New services for you

We’re always looking for new ways to serve you, and one of our latest is an online public directory of alumni. This new feature on our website allows anyone to look for a Palmer chiropractor in their community, or to seek one where they’ll be vacationing or moving. All anyone needs to do is go to and click on “Find a D.C.” at the top of the home page. Please check your information to make sure it’s correct and fill out our easy online form to update it if it isn’t. You can read more about this fantastic service on page 21.

Additionally, we’re honoring our donors in a more public way on our website. Just go to, click on the Alumni section, and then click on the “Donor Recognition” link to see everyone in the different groups who give back to Palmer and deserve our recognition and thanks.

We’ve begun a new initiative we call our Student 2 State Association Program . We’re starting with the state associations in our top five referring states for the Davenport campus: Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa and Pennsylvania. The objective of this program is to better connect our students with the state associations so they’ll be more prepared for practice in their chosen state. You can read about this great new program on page 20.

We’re also structuring the alumni connection to the college. Each state will have a state representative and a number of district representatives. Using Iowa as an example, we’ll have one state representative and 10 district representatives. All of these positions will be appointed with three-year term limits. Our plan is to start with the top 20 states (in terms of numbers of alumni) this year and then bring the other 30 states into the program next year, followed by the international alumni.

The past few months have been ones of transition and accomplishment in the Alumni and Development areas at Palmer. With the retirement of Mr. Robert Lee from the College, I’ve been overseeing the activities of both the Alumni and Development offices. It’s exciting and rewarding to see what we’ve been able to accomplish so far. But we couldn’t do it without you. As always, thanks for all you do for Palmer and chiropractic.
