    IRAPS a Success
     
    The 2006 IRAPS conference was held November 3-5 in conjunction with the College's Fall Lyceum Event. The conference theme pertained to the concept of "Adaptation." Invited speakers included Yvonne Russell Villaneuva-Russell, Ph.D. (Texas A & M University professor of sociology) and Bruce Lipton, Ph.D. (noted biologist and author).  Submitted topics included: adaptation as a component of health, case studies, and physiology of the chiropractic adjustment. A lively panel discussion took place Saturday evening of the conference at the Marriott in downtown Spartanburg.
