  July Success Colloquium Features Peterson, Wise and ‘Chicago Three’


Sherman’s Leadership and Practice Management Institute (LPMI) presents its third monthly Success Colloquium on Thursday, July 20, featuring sessions on leadership, practice management and personal development with Julie Peterson, D.C., Les Wise, D.C., and the “Chicago Three” – Sam Wang, Gary Roeben & Brian Rutecki, D.C.s. The program is held from 6-9 p.m. on campus. Cost is $35 for D.C.s and $10 for faculty/staff/students and includes dinner.

Julie Peterson, D.C., will present “Practicing with Passion: Building a Bigger Family Practice.” Peterson, often referred to as “a doctor with a heart,” has seen more than 170,000 patients, with half of her patients being under the age of 12, in just 10 years of family practice. She will share easy and simple ways to build your pediatric practice and have more fun.

Les Wise, D.C., will present “Practicing Subluxation Correction within the Standard of Care.” Wise, a professor of clinical sciences at Sherman since 1974, is a consultant and item writer for the NBCE Ethics and Boundaries exam and frequently serves as a standard of care expert in malpractice actions. He will discuss the chiropractic standard of care and its implications for the subluxation-centered chiropractor. Risk management strategies will also be discussed. This portion of the program offers 1 hour CE credit.

Sam Wang, D.C., Gary Roeben, D.C., & Brian Rutecki, D.C., 2001 Sherman College graduates, will present “Sculpting the Chiropractic Office Using a TEAM Approach.” The Chicago Three have touched thousands of lives through their passion for serving and no-nonsense approach to leading lives of abundant health, vitality and excellence. They will discuss how “together everyone achieves more” (TEAM), plus topics like drive, communication, perseverance and commitment.

The Success Colloquium is designed to engage regional chiropractors in perfecting the knowledge and skills of practice management. Through these personal development monthly meetings, participants will advance their leadership and practice management abilities. These sessions are specifically designed to give participants great effectiveness in growing and maintaining successful practices.
