Tell Your Students about Shadow an Intern Day Feb. 28

adjustmentAspiring chiropractors are invited to visit campus and experience a day in the life of a chiropractic student intern. Prospective students will spend time in our 25,000-square-foot Chiropractic Health Center to observe patient visits, learn about patient care and case management, view the digital x-ray suite, and much more. Sometimes, the best way to see if something is the right fit is to try it out. Encourage your prospective students to register today and discover if Sherman College is the school for them!

WE Love Chiropractic

We recently asked prospective students to join us on Facebook and tell us about the moment they fell in love with chiropractic and knew it was the profession for them.  The stories shared were all inspiring and heartfelt. Our winning entry was from Tara Levesque of Maine.

As a chiropractic assistant, Levesque found her passion the day she saw her chiropractor adjust a newborn baby. Our five faculty and staff judges loved her enthusiasm for chiropractic and her excitement about becoming part of the profession. We hope the cozy Sherman College jacket we’re sending will keep her feeling warm and fuzzy about chiropractic until she enrolls in 2015. Everyone who entered the contest will get a thank-you gift in the mail from the college.

Here’s what Tara had to say:

I've worked as a CA for 5 years but didn’t know my true passion was becoming a chiropractor myself until I went to the hospital with the doctor I work for to adjust a newborn. The mom was very upset the baby wasn’t nursing, and she was having a hard time getting him to latch and feed. His atlas was cleared, and a few hours later we received a text message thanking the doc and telling him how grateful she was that he came in. The baby napped when we left and when he woke he latched and nursed for the first time. That was when I knew.... My doc gave that family so much more than just an adjustment; the mom was able to feel like she could provide for her baby (a fear every new mom has), the baby was able to nurse and eat the best possible food (no formula), and the relationship between a nursing mom and baby was established. We will never know the true power that adjustment had! It's similar to the “potential of an acorn.” I CAN'T wait to get to Sherman (2015) so I too can be used as a vessel to bestow true LIFE to as many people as possible!!

Student Receives $1,000 “Educate Your Heart” Scholarship

Charles AgbetsoamedoSherman student Charles Agbetsoamedo of Ghana has been chosen as one of two recipients nationwide to receive a $1,000 “Educate Your Heart” scholarship from Krill Oil.

Agbetsoamedo’s essay, titled “Lifestyle to Promote a Healthy Heart and Holistic Well Being,” is featured on the organization’s web site, as well as a biography and information about being a chiropractic student.

In addition to assisting in the anatomy lab at Sherman and tutoring other students, Agbetsoamedo has a current GPA of 3.913, having successfully completed 68 classes, 3 national board exams, and 752 clinic hours so far. In the biography section, he details the rigor of the academic program at Sherman and shares his excitement about finishing the program and serving patients.

“I have two more national board exams and a few more classes and clinic requirements to meet before graduating,” he explains. “I love my program and I’m very excited to work with my patients in the school clinic to help them improve their health and holistic well being. I look forward to serving more people through chiropractic care. I love what I do and look forward to successfully completing my program to help many more people.”
