Delegation of Five Represents Sherman College at World Congress of Chiropractic Students Conferencepractic

MAY 20, 2002 -   Five World Congress of Chiropractic Students (WCCS) delegates from Sherman College traveled to MacQuarie University in October 2001 to discuss current issues and to promote unity within the international chiropractic student community.

WCCS’ annual conferences bring together students from around the world who are preparing to enter the chiropractic profession. The Sherman College 2001 delegation included Aaron Harchak, Bob Kleckner, Renee Perry, Justin Sheffler and head delegate John Claussen.

In preparation for the conference, the group spent the last year gathering information regarding a broad range of current trends and important events relating to chiropractic. They presented the following proposals, all of which passed:

*Sending a letter to the Governor of California urging that new appointments be made for the expired and therefore unfilled positions on the California chiropractic board, so that quorum can be reestablished
* Recommending P.T. training and testing on a voluntary basis (only if the practitioner considers using PT in his/her practice)
* Increasing visibility of WCCS and issues pertaining to WCCS and the profession on every chiropractic college campus.

“We were very pleased that all our proposals passed,” says Claussen. “There was a cooperative effort among students from all the chiropractic colleges, and it’s always great to meet students from other schools who share the vision of helping humanity through chiropractic.”

Sherman College WCCS members are now preparing and planning fund raisers to fund their trip to the 2002 conference, which will be held at Palmer College this August. Claussen says about twelve students are planning to attend.
