 Brown Speaks at European Symposium on Family Practice

Myron D. Brown, D.C.

The Interalpen Hotel in Tyrol, Austria, was the site for the first-ever European Symposium on Family Practice. Perched high on a mountain with breathtaking panoramic Alpine vistas, an assemblage of chiropractors and chiropractic students from many countries gathered for a conference focused on the unfolding role of chiropractic in Europe.

Executive Vice President/Provost Myron D. Brown, D.C., was a featured speaker at the conference on July 17 and 18. His topics included a presentation on the philosophy of chiropractic, the objectives of chiropractic practice, a pictorial history of the development of the chiropractic profession and the growth of Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic.

Other scheduled speakers were Drs. C.J. Mertz, Jeanne Ohm, Eric Plasker, Terry Rondberg, Bobby Doscher of the Oklahaven Children’s Center, Matt McCoy, and Mark J. Styers, organizer of the event; and Barbara Loe Fischer.

Brown also hosted a table with information about careers in chiropractic and the college in particular. Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic was the only college represented at the event.

“I feel as though we made many important contacts and spread good will for Sherman,” says Brown of the event. “This group provided an important focus on vertebral subluxation-centered chiropractic, which is sorely needed in Europe. I look forward to returning for next year’s Symposium on Family Practice.”
