Angela Banks participants

Angela Banks Benefit Dinner

By Kayla Minniear

Sherman student Angela Banks and her family, husband, Larry, and children, Logan and Emma, relocated to Spartanburg from Winchester, KY, for Angela to pursue a lifelong dream of becoming a chiropractor.

Shortly after beginning this endeavor, Angela was diagnosed with stage IV cancer in her abdomen. Angela decided to pursue alternative treatments at Home for Health Lifestyle Center in Stanton, KY.

In an effort to subsidize the expense of treatment, Angela's classmates and Chiropractic Student Government Secretary Wendy Parker combined efforts and organized a benefit supper and silent auction on October 22.

Generous donations toward the auction included chiropractic care packages from faculty members Drs. Bill Decken, Kevin Power, and Charles Kenya; as well as various gift certificates from area restaurants, a plethora of gift baskets, services varying from massage to photography, and much more.

Profits of $1,053 and $2,018 from the dinner and auction, respectively, combined with monetary donations from Sherman College students, faculty members, staff, community members, and the DE Warriors totaled $4957. 

"My Sherman family has helped save my life, said Angela. "To be surrounded by people who share my values of natural healing gave me abundant strength and I am forever grateful." The family has set up a donation page,, for anyone interested in supporting her fight.

Access Health Spartanburg

Access Health Selects
Sherman College Health Center as First Chiropractic Partner

The Sherman College Chiropractic Health Center has become the first chiropractic partner of Access Health of Spartanburg. Access Health is a non-profit corporation serving the medically underserved population in Spartanburg County. Access Health staff screens patients and sends them to the proper healthcare provider based on the patient’s presentation.

The health center currently receives a set number of referral patients monthly from Access Health and delivers chiropractic care to this population. Dean of Clinics Adam Morrell, D.C.,  says the program has been in effect since July of this year. “We have been getting excellent feedback from Access patients and staff as well as our own interns, faculty and staff,” he shares.

Access Health, in turn, reports nothing but compliments from its staff and the patients. The organization recently collected several testimonials about patient care at the Chiropractic Health Center:

  • “[My intern] is an angel. She graduates in December and is thinking about opening a practice here locally. I hope she does, because she is good!

  • “They are very professional. They treated me kind, and I didn’t feel any type of stigma because I was on an assistance type program. It was great.

  • “They said my headaches weren’t really headaches, but that they were upper neck pain. I woke up every day with headache. Now I don’t wake up with headaches anymore.”

Talk the Tic


From left: Guthrie Schroeder (Sherman), Brett Jones (Life West), Dr. Eric Van Slooten, Brady Salcido (SCUHS), Boo Burnier (Life), and Jean-Phillipe Mercier (Parker).

Dr. Erik Van Slooten had a dream that students from all chiropractic colleges would join together to do lay lectures in a fun, competitive environment. He created Talk the Tic in November 2006 to help raise awareness of the chiropractic profession. This year, Sherman hosted the final Talk the ‘TIC competition and had 5 competitors from across the nation. The winner was Brady Salcido from Southern California University of Health Sciences

Activate your future at sherman with David TanActivate…Your Future!

Sherman’s campus was filled with new faces October 18-19. Along with the Talk the Tic contestants, prospective students and their families experienced Activate…Your Future!

The weekend’s events included attending technique and philosophy classes taught by Sherman faculty along with lectures on  business and leadership taught by Board of Trustees members Peter Kevorkian, D.C, and Liam Schübel, D.C. One highlight of the weekend was the tour of local apartments to help incoming students transition to their new homes away from home.


Sherman College of Chiropractic held its 10th annual International Research and Philosophy Symposium (IRAPS) on campus October 19-20. Attendees heard from 24 researchers who presented their findings.

IRAPS is a great opportunity for researchers who excel in the art of locating and correcting vertebral subluxation to share the information they glean from their research.  The attendees walked away with information to use in their own practices and new ideas for future research. In addition, attendees mentored prospective students over lunch and attended a Saturday evening social to network and get to know each other.

Sherman College has created a committee for IRAPS 2014 and is interested in gathering feedback.  If you have suggestions for the future event being held October 18-19, 2014, please contact the Office of Continuing Education.  We look forward to receiving a record number of abstracts and hosting IRAPS on campus in 2014, and we want to make this event the best to date.

To learn about future continuing education events, contact Stacy Bradey, Director of Continuing Education, at (800) 849-8771, ext. 229. For more information, visit
