Mark your calendars now for the Fall Lyceum, featuring the International Research and Philosophy Symposium (IRAPS), November 3-5 at Sherman College. This year’s conference has been expanded to include a valuable professional success program along with scholarly research and philosophy presentations on the topic of adaptation.

Philosophical papers will discuss specific ramifications of the adaptive process while research presentations will discuss the impact of vertebral subluxation and its correction as it relates to adaptability.

Keynote speaker for IRAPS is Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., an internationally recognized authority in bridging science and philosophy. Lipton’s enthusiasm and passion for science is evident in his presentations. He has been a guest speaker on dozens of television and radio shows, as well as keynote presenter for national conferences. Lipton began his scientific career as a cell biologist and received his Ph.D. from the University of Virginia at Charlottesville. He is regarded as one of the leading voices of the new biology. Lipton will present a five-hour lecture on “The Physics and Biology of Adaptation.”

Featured speaker Yvonne Villanueva-Russell, Ph.D., received her doctorate in sociology from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 2002. Her dissertation dealt with the contradictions of professionalism and entrepreneurialism in the history of chiropractic. Villanueva-Russell is currently an assistant professor of sociology at Texas A&M University-Commerce. Her research interests include the professionalization of alternative medicine, the implications of evidence-based medicine, and the historical emergence of entrepreneurial orientations in health care. Her presentation is titled, “From Above Down, Inside Out: Adaptation and Professional Identity.”
