Sherman Shares - August 2010
Chiropractic to the World:
Houpt shares Haiti Chiropractic Mission Trip Experience
by Marggi Roldan
with Katie Aita Houpt, D.C.
“I was most deeply reminded of how lucky I am,” says Dr. Katie Houpt after
she returned from a recent trip to Haiti where she volunteered her time and travel
to care for hundreds of Haitian adults and children still living in tent cities
following a devastating earthquake in January. She and other chiropractors are
making the trip through Mission Life International organized by Dr. Peter Morgan.
Houpt says she met Morgan at a New Beginnings Seminar and learned about his
efforts to help the Haitians.. Read more

Meet the Trustees: Dr. John Hilpisch, Chairman
John Hilpisch likes to say he discovered chiropractic in 1991 after attending
an A.D.I.O. seminar. This 1987 graduate of Northwestern College of Chiropractic
is a native of Lake Elmo, MN. He is well-known for his love and teaching of upper
cervical chiropractic and practice of the Blair technique. He opened a private
practice in 1998 and has practiced there since. Hilpisch is certified board proficient
in the Blair technique.
Dr. Hilpisch attended his first Sherman College Lyceum in 1992. The energy and
passion he felt on campus from the students, alumni, faculty and staff made him
feel as though he found a new home. The sense of belonging and a desire to help
preserve the mission of Sherman is what prompted him to apply for a position on
the Board of Trustees here. Read more about Dr. Hilpisch
Alumnus Burcon to Present Research in Japan

novel treatment of inner ear diseases. Burcon is a 1998 Sherman alumnus practicing
in Grand Rapids, MI.
Burcon began researching Meniere’s Disease (MD) 10 years ago after having

Jasen Van Dyke Wins $700 CCA Auxiliary Scholarship
First place was awarded to Sherman student Jasen Van Dyke for his essay
"How God Guided Me into Chiropractic" in the Christian Chiropractors
Association Auxiliary Scholarship contest. The essay was chosen from 16 entries
from several chiropractic colleges. Jasen shares his journey as a parent
of a child diagnosed with cerebral palsy who at age three began receiving
chiropractic care. Jasen's observations of the results of care for the child
of a friend, and for his daughter and his wife, led him to change career
from teaching to studying chiropractic. He
is currently in his fourth quarter. "I excitedly wait," Jasen says, "for
the privilege of serving others." Read
the winning essay on the CCA website.

Prospective Students Shadow Sherman
College’s most recent Shadow an Intern Day was held on Thursday, July 29. The
college welcomed six students and their guests to campus to enjoy lunch in
the Scallon Building Atrium before pairing them up with interns for an afternoon
in the Chiropractic Health Center. This event is designed to be small
and personal so the prospective students can benefit from the one-on-one
interaction with their interns.
students were able to observe patient visits, sit in on classes, tour the
x-ray suite and experience all the daily responsibilities of an intern. By
all reports, the students had a great day, and the only complaint was that
the day was over too soon! Shadow an Intern Days are held in February
and July each year.
Save the Date!
