Attracting Chiropractors of the Future
by Admission Representative Daria Winnicka
Sherman chiropractors are a great group of people. Of course, I am probably
biased, but working with alumni and supporters is something the Admission Office
is especially excited about. In my travels as an admission representative, I’ve
been fortunate enough to join forces with some of these chiropractors in the
college’s mission to bring straight chiropractic to the world. Specifically,
I’d like to share the story of two chiropractors, the husband and wife team
of Drs. Josh and Benna Click, who have made a huge impact on the future of chiropractic.

to Present at Dose-Response Conference
Associate Professor John Hart, D.C., M.H.S., will make a poster
presentation at the 2010 Dose-Response Conference to be held at the University
of Massachusetts-Amherst April 27-28. His abstract focuses on Cancer Mortality
in Low versus High Elevation Counties in Texas.
Dr. Hart will be advancing the mission and getting the
name of Sherman College known in this sector of the scientific community. The
International Dose-Response Society is dedicated to the enhancement, exchange,
and dissemination of ongoing global research in hormesis, a dose-response phenomenon
characterized by low-dose stimulation and high-dose inhibition.(http://www.dose-response.org/)
