I know several other students have already posted about New Beginnings, but I would like to add my experience as well. I would like to thank Dr. Peter Kevorkian and the Board for provided transportation. Is was nice to be able to study on the bus as well as not have to worry about speeding tickets trying to get to NJ. I enjoyed meeting the big wigs of chiropractic and spending time with my fellow students.
For those of you that don't know chiropractic has an interesting history in the past 100+years. From DD Palmer thinking he found the cure for deafness, to doctors being put in jail for practicing medicine without a license. Now I have the right to practice just about anywhere. I am grateful for the people who have gone before me to make this possible. One of my favorite sessions during the event was when 6 of the most influential women in chiropractic where all on stage together. (Patsy Sigafoose, Barbara Dubel, Irene Gold, Ruth Ribley, Sue DeMarco, and Rose Panico) I also had the opportunity to meet Dr. Strauss, the writer of several chiropractic textbooks. These people are not going to be around forever, and to have the opportunity to meet then and ask questions is an honor. I am grateful that they continue to donate their time to students.
I also enjoyed meet a couple of guys from Northwestern during a doctor round table.I know we talk about philosophy a lot at Sherman, but I could not image a school that does not talk about philosophy at all. These guys have just started a philosophy club at Northwestern. I give you guys the utmost respect for being the light on your campus. Some other fun memories include the bon fire on the beach, as well as playing pool with fellow class mates. I hope everyone will take advantage of the opportunity to attend New Beginnings as a student!
