Plenary Speakers Announced

Dean DePice, DCDean DePice, D.C. - Thursday, May 24, Plenary Session
Dr. DePice has been practicing since 1987. Majoring in chemistry and biology, combined with his lifelong experience and knowledge of chiropractic, positions him as a doctor who pursues knowledge upon patient outcomes with a balanced focus on the practical application of science and philosophy.

His success lies in his consistent execution of delivering an ideal balance in personal and procedural development, and integration of science and philosophy into practical patient experiences. Building team driven practices, cash practices and lifetime care are all cornerstones of TLC coaching.

Dr. DePice excels at understanding and inspiring patients and doctors alike with a clear approach to combining science and philosophy in practice to optimize both the patients and doctors outcomes. He is able to accomplish this with the support from his wife, Dr. Jen DePice and his three children.

Dr. Joe Borio Joseph C. Borio, D.C., - Friday, May 25, Plenary Session
Dr. Joe Borio’s chiropractic education started at National College of Chiropractic and continues to this day in his chiropractic practice in Cicero, NY. During the past 20 years, Dr. Joe has grown one of the busiest high volume practices in the country regularly adjusting more than 300 people a day. 

Chiropassion Consulting was started 10 years ago in an effort to help chiropractors and their teams reach the best goals and levels of care possible for their patients. Dr. Borio’s clients will tell you he is an honest man with a great outlook and a warm personality whose motivational speaking and conviction for his love of chiropractic is apparent in everything he does.

“The future of chiropractic is in our hands, and it is a huge responsibility,” he says. “Chiropassion Consulting is one of many efforts to keep true to the chiropractic principles while ensuring the success of all the clients we help.”

Bill Esteb William D. Esteb - Saturday, May 26, Plenary Session
After working as the creative director for various advertising agencies in Denver, Seattle, and San Francisco, Mr. Esteb was introduced to chiropractic in 1981 when he was asked to write what became known as the Peter Graves video for Renaissance International.

Later, Esteb got together with two chiropractors and formed Back Talk Systems where he was the creative force until 1999, when he started Patient Media, Inc. In 2004 he co-founded Perfect Patients, an interactive web service which manages the online reputations of more than 2,000. In 2011 he co-founded The Paperwork Project with Kathy Mills Chang, which supplies state-of-the-art chiropractic paperwork and documentation resources at

The author of 10 books from a chiropractic patient’s point of view, Esteb blogs weekly at and sends “Monday Morning Motivation” emails. When he isn’t writing about chiropractic or speaking about chiropractic, he can be found thinking about chiropractic—from a patient’s point of view.

Paddens Earn Second $5,000 in Scholarship Funds to Award to Future Sherman Students

Alumni Gary and Cathie Padden of Lakeview, MI, have proven that it really does pay to refer students to Sherman College. In just three years, the Paddens have referred 11 new students who have enrolled at the college; the couple just earned a second $5,000 My Scholarship award.

As part of the college’s My Scholarship program to encourage referrals and build enrollment, a $5,000 Gary and Cathie Padden Scholarship has been established for the Paddens to award, in whole or in part, to any future chiropractic student(s) of their choice.

The Paddens’ most recent student referrals earning them a second $5,000 scholarship (plus another $1,000 toward the next award) include current students Casey Bogart, Carissa Meyers, Andy Padden, Lisa Patrick, Andrew Peasley and Justin Peasley. Myers and Patrick, the couple’s most recent referrals, enrolled in the college’s Winter 2012 class earlier this month. The couple returned to Spartanburg in December 2011 to attend the commencement ceremony in support of their first two referrals, Nick Schuster and Ashley Stalmack.

“We are very grateful to Drs. Gary and Cathie Padden for the confidence they have shown in Sherman by referring students to us, and we are excited to celebrate this milestone with them,” says Vice President for Enrollment Services Kelley Jones Ashcraft, M.B.A.
