Shaping Bright Minds: Past, Present and Future Twenty years of academic excellence and innovation position Logan for long-term success A lot has changed at Logan in the past 20 years. Yesterday’s incoming classes of students are now seasoned chiropractic doctors, caring for patients throughout the country and world. Experienced faculty members have retired after decades of preparing students to practice chiropractic, while new instructors have embarked on careers shaping the next generation. New degree programs are available, giving Logan students more options in how to learn and train for helping patients. And new facilities are in place, expanding the opportunities and space available to Logan students and faculty as we work together to establish the new state of the art in chiropractic education. In many ways, the people, programs and even the physical infrastructure of Logan are radically different than they were 20 years ago. But one thing has not changed at Logan: the constant pursuit of excellence in chiropractic education. The Logan community—including faculty, students, alumni and leadership—has worked tirelessly to move Logan forward by expanding educational opportunities, providing service to the community and building the chiropractic discipline through research and study. This passion for moving chiropractic education forward has resulted in innumerable advancements at Logan over the past few years. It is worth taking a moment to reflect on the positive changes at Logan during the past several years, and to think about how Logan can continue to be a leader in the field of chiropractic for years to come. Since its founding in 1935, Logan College of Chiropractic has been a leader in chiropractic education. The past two decades have been particularly pivotal for the college, as Logan has significantly enriched its course offerings and facilities while expanding access to chiropractic education. These enhancements have positioned Logan and its students for an enduring and bright future. “Logan has built an impressive foundation that will enable Logan, its faculty and students to contribute to the chiropractic field for decades,” said Dr. J. Clay McDonald, Logan’s new president. Logan Board of Trustees Steven C. Roberts, JD, LLM Chair of the Board Debra L.

Just in the mid-1990s, Logan received substantial equipment donations, including leading-edge machines and systems such as: • An Automatic Exposure Control device, which reduces radiation exposure from x-ray machines • Diagnostic ultrasound machines • Adjusting therapy tables • A Polar-Iris phase contrast microscope that can be connected to a monitor and better detect significant specimen features A close-up of METIman, a human body simulator. Many of these devices, the most advanced at the time, were the same models being used at hospitals or other clinical settings, allowing students to learn on the same machines they would someday use in their careers. In 2012, Logan introduced the METIman human simulator to the classroom, which allows students to use real-world diagnostic methods in realistic—but simulated—patient scenarios. Computer-programmable to exhibit various patient conditions, METIman responds to student actions verbally and physiologically, and helps them develop a comprehensive and integrated understanding of patient care. This sophisticated simulation tool gives Logan students the opportunity to diagnose and respond to conditions such as trauma or tumors, which they may not otherwise encounter during their clinic rotations but may need to address during their careers. METIman also allows students to develop and refine their communication skills and bedside manner, gaining “patient experience” far earlier in their education than traditionally possible. Logan has also upgraded its facilities to better foster high-quality education. Most recently, in 2012, the school added a $4.9 million, 13,000-square-foot educational wing. This facility features a smart classroom equipped with the latest learning technologies, as well as what many consider the building’s jewel: the Assessment Center. The Assessment Center houses eight exam rooms that simulate realworld settings where students can “treat” people simulating various symptoms, such as lower-back pain. The exam rooms, in turn, surround a central viewing area where faculty use audio and video technology to A look at Logan’s new educational wing, which opened in 2012. 1992 1993 Basic science curriculum updated to expose students to foundational chiropractic knowledge sooner Logan Alumni have access to classes required for Bachelor of Science degrees 1994 Prerequisite courses offered on accelerated schedule through New College of California 2 LOGAN COLLEGE OF CHIROPRACTIC/UNIVERSITY PROGRAMS SCIENCE AND NATURE ALIGNED IN BALANCE monitor and evaluate students’ clinical examinations (their adjusting techniques, for example) and communication abilities without disrupting patient interaction. In this interactive learning environment, students gain early experience in clinical observation by developing in-depth knowledge of body mechanics and chiropractic techniques while finetuning their diagnostic and communications skills. Cutting-edge technology also powers the virtual pre-and post-encounter stations. At pre-encounter stations, students read about their assigned patients and their symptoms and receive the exam room number. After examining the patient, students visit post-encounter stations where they record their diagnosis, write patient notes and reports and, when necessary, draft letters for referring doctors. Student entries made at post-encounter stations prompt questions about the diagnosis, requiring students to share and support their rationale. Logan’s mobile unit goes on the road to sporting events, schools and community events. Hands-on learning Many of the changes at Logan in the past 20 years have been driven by the core philosophy that direct experience is an invaluable teaching tool. As a result of these changes, Logan students are able to enjoy myriad opportunities to put their classroom knowledge to the test in real-world settings. Logan’s mobile unit, acquired in 2007, provides a way for students to visit local sporting events to treat athletes on site. Students also take the mobile unit to local schools to evaluate student athletes, and help coaches tailor fitness and strength-training regimens. The mobile unit gives students a unique learning experience while allowing them to provide a valuable service to field doctors, athletic trainers and high school coaches who otherwise would not have had access to such programs. In 2010, Logan initiated its Community-Based Internship Program, which allows students to apply internship credits toward graduation. Also in 2010, Logan partnered with the 375th Medical Group at Scott Air Force Base, which gave clinical students a chance to work directly with the active military population. Today, this unique program continues to address the specialized chiropractic care needs of enlisted personnel, and helps them perform their military duties. To increase internship opportunities, Logan partnered with CHIPS (formerly Community Health-In-Partnership Services) in 2011. CHIPS operates a free clinic that serves low-income communities in the St. Louis area. Through this program, Logan students can apply for internships with the CHIPS community health center in north St. Louis to provide A Logan faculty member and students pose at Scott Air Force Base. 1995 Electives in nine specialty techniques introduced Financial planning seminars and communications workshops offered Partnership between Logan and St. Louis Community College offers pre-chiropractic classes to community college students 1997 Logan hosted first ever chiropractic radiology “cybercast” (webinar) Grant received from Missouri Gateway Geriatric Education Center 2001 Acupuncture study launched by Logan and Harvard’s Massachusetts General Hospital Mathematics, social sciences and humanities classes added to help undergraduates meet new national chiropractic admission requirements SPRING 2013 3 S H A P I N G B R I G H T M I N D S : P A S T, P R E S E N T A N D F U T U R E chiropractic care to uninsured and underinsured individuals, helping to meet unmet health needs. Many of the individuals served through the CHIPS program work, but do not qualify for Medicaid and cannot afford private health insurance; therefore, the free care provided by Logan students helps fill a critical gap. Logan’s partnership with CHIPS also lets students work alongside doctors, physical therapists and students from area medical schools such as Washington University. Sharing and discussing case files and learning how to coordinate with other health care providers prepares Logan students to be members of the broader health care community; and it benefits their patients who receive a more comprehensive approach to managing their health care needs. Learning from the best minds None of Logan’s educational achievements in the past 20 years would have been possible without its top-notch faculty. The value Logan faculty members have brought to students, the college and the broader chiropractic field is found partly in their notable professional achievements and diverse backgrounds. They hail from countries such as France and China, and they have expanded access to chiropractic education in places as far away as Spain and Japan. In 2003, Logan Basic Technique was taught to Japanese doctors, including trained acupuncturists and bonesetters, over an eight-day period in Osaka, Japan. More recently in 2012, students at Real Centro Universitario (RCU) Escorial Maria Cristina in Madrid, Spain, participated in a fundamentals of chiropractic radiology course taught by a visiting Logan professor who is also a chiropractic board-certified radiologist. In the past, RCU did not have access to the knowledge and skills of this type of doctor. The series of three-week long lecture sessions were the offspring of a partnership between Logan and RCU. RCU students in Madrid Spain, pose for the camera. 2006 2007 Logan Sports Science and Rehabilitation Master’s program launches Mobile treatment unit acquired 2008 Distance learning initiatives launch 4 LOGAN COLLEGE OF CHIROPRACTIC/UNIVERSITY PROGRAMS SCIENCE AND NATURE ALIGNED IN BALANCE A well-rounded education Logan faculty members continually strive to evolve and refine their teaching methods and course offerings, and the result has been a student body consistently well-versed in the latest and most effective treatment protocols and techniques. In 1992, Logan reshaped its basic science curriculum to expose students to spinal anatomy labs and adjusting and palpation materials earlier in their course of education. This has helped students establish stronger foundational knowledge that supports future coursework. Since 1995, students have been able to select from nine elective techniques, including applied kinesiology. Loganâ€™s core curriculum evolved with chiropractic adjusting techniques to ensure it reflected current chiropractic practices. Students have also had foreign study opportunities in destinations such as Ecuador. To ensure students obtain the necessary chiropractic grounding, Logan created a peer-to-peer academic support program that offers free individual and group tutoring, pairing top, faculty-recommended students with those seeking academic support. The initiative has proven popular, with more than 14,500 tutoring hours provided to 520 Logan students during a one-year period alone. Students conduct a leg length check during an applied kinesiology class. Preparing for the full spectrum of practice Logan and its faculty work hard to empower students with the non-clinical tools and knowledge necessary for future success, whether that means someday running their own practices, conducting research or teaching others. Strong financial management abilities, for example, are a critical part of running a chiropractic practice. Recognizing the importance of these skills for its students, Logan hosted a five-part seminar series on financial planning in the 1990s. Students learned firsthand from St. Louis-area practitioners and financial experts strategies for paying off student loans while launching a practice, business planning methods and actions they could take immediately to ensure a solid financial future. Loganâ€™s financial education efforts have paid offâ€”literally. The college has a student loan default rate of less than 2 percent, far below the national average for private non-profit institutions of 7.5 percent. Sound communication skills are another key ingredient for professional chiropractic success. To help equip students with the verbal communication abilities necessary for their internships and effective patient interactions, Logan introduced communications workshops that include role playing and presentations to community organizations in 1995.

Expanding access to chiropractic education In the past two decades, Logan has made great strides in expanding access to a chiropractic education beyond its campus. In 1997, the school hosted the first-ever chiropractic radiology “cybercast” (similar to a webinar) to participants throughout the country. This session, which focused on future applications for computer diagnostic imaging, was conducted from a Logan smart classroom equipped with leading-edge teaching technologies and what was, at the time, unprecedented Internet access to dozens of diagnostic images, case studies, case discussions, X-rays and MRI films. These materials continue to serve as invaluable teaching tools today. And, just a year after the initial cybercast, Logan announced the creation of two new smart classrooms. By 2005, the cybercast and smart classrooms had paved the way for distance learning initiatives at Logan that enabled the college to expand access to its core curriculum for national and international audiences. As a result of these early endeavors in remote learning, Logan can now offer its Master of Science Degree in Nutrition and Human Performance both online and on campus. Logan has also expanded access to chiropractic education by partnering with other universities. In 1995, Logan and St. Louis Community College united to offer courses for community college students to meet the Associate of Science degree requirements for pre-chiropractic studies. These students could then apply to transfer to Logan and work toward their Bachelor of Science degree. One year later, Logan established a partnership with New College of California to assist students in meeting prerequisite requirements by offering required science courses on an accelerated schedule. Currently, accelerated course offerings are available at Logan through the college’s undergraduate Accelerated Science Program. This program makes it possible for students to fulfill their Bachelor of Science degree requirements and start on their doctoral program requirements all under Logan’s roof. Interesting historical facts about Logan College • Founded in 1935, Logan is the first chiropractic college to require four years of academic study. • Logan’s first class included six men and two women. • Early students lived together like family, hosting parties and frequenting Bradley’s Neighborhood Tavern in their free time. • Logan’s first students paid just $1 daily for room and board at Logan. Because of the Great Depression, many came from families with limited resources. • The GI Bill following World War II and Logan’s 1964 merger with Missouri Chiropractic College of St. Louis greatly increased college enrollment. • Logan’s first alumni association was created in 1945. It merged with the International Basic Technique Research Institute in 1964 to form the Logan College Alumni Association. • Logan received its first accreditation in 1978. • In 1980, Logan was the first chiropractic college to appoint a woman, Beatrice B. Hagen, as president. • Today, Logan’s students are a diverse group, representing most U.S. states and several foreign countries. Keeping pace with the changing chiropractic field College faculty and administrators have worked diligently to ensure the school’s curriculum keeps pace with the changing chiropractic field. In 1993 Logan began offering alumni classes necessary for obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree, further rounding out their knowledge, experience and credentials. And one year later, Logan began a partnership with New College of California to offer required science courses on an accelerated schedule. When national chiropractic admission requirements changed in 2001 to require that students complete an additional 30 credit hours, Logan sought to assist students who fell short of the requirement by adding courses in mathematics, social sciences and humanities to its undergraduate curriculum. Beyond assisting students in meeting degree requirements, Logan has continually upgraded its course offerings to include specialized areas of chiropractic practice, including incorporating geriatric treatment information into course offerings (work supported by a grant from the Missouri Gateway Geriatric Education Center in 1997) and, more recently, creating the Sports Science and Rehabilitation master’s degree program in 2006. 6 LOGAN COLLEGE OF CHIROPRACTIC/UNIVERSITY PROGRAMS SCIENCE AND NATURE ALIGNED IN BALANCE Current Elective Chiropractic Techniques at Logan Activator Methods Active Release Technique (ART) Advanced Basic Technique Applied Kinesiology Flexion-Distraction (COX) Technique The Gonstead System Graston and Soft Tissue Techniques Sacro Occipital Technic (SOT) Soft Tissue Technique Thompson Technique Upper Cervical Specific The first graduates of Logan’s Master’s Program in Sports Science and Rehabilitation (April 2008). Chiropractic field contributions Logan has contributed to advancing the chiropractic field as a whole through research, collaborations and clinical studies—activities largely made possible through grants and partnerships with other institutions. Many of these efforts have revealed new data to support chiropractic treatment of a variety of conditions such as studies on relieving lower-back, neck and head pain; and new conservative treatments for carpel tunnel syndrome. Other Logan research studies have focused on the link between acupuncture and pain processing, the effectiveness of chiropractic treatment on lower-back pain and balance among geriatric patients, and the relationship between nutritional supplements and chiropractic intervention for ankle sprain patients. What’s next for Logan? Today, Logan continues to identify ways to enhance its core and specialized educational programs and is always looking forward. Given how far Logan has come in the past 20 years, there is no telling how Logan will strengthen chiropractic education during the next 20 years. SPRING 2013 7 STUDENT LIFE Navigating the Path to Logan: ASP STUDENT JOSH PASCHAL Josh Paschal (left) meets with Steve Held, Division of Enrollment Management There’s a quote on display in Josh Paschal’s apartment that says: “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.” For Josh—an ASP student at Logan— those words could not better describe his life. LOGAN UNIVERSITY Logan University is a diverse and engaging community committed to excellence in health sciences, education and service, guided by integrity, commitment and passion. Long before he arrived at Logan, Josh was on a different path, working in the world of business and marketing before teaching these subjects at the middle school and high school levels. While he enjoyed working in education, Josh yearned for a different aspect of working with students. He earned a master’s degree in counseling, during his last year of teaching, and for the next five years, he counseled high school students. “Right out of the gate, I was on fire,” he said. “I really enjoyed it and I loved working with kids.” But after a few years, he started to get burned out. “I kept feeling like there was more for me, but I didn’t know what or where that was,” he said. Josh explored his options within the education field and researched graduate programs, master’s degrees and doctoral degrees. It wasn’t until a visit to his chiropractor that he would get his first glimpse into a new career path: health care. Before he considered chiropractic as a career, Josh spoke to his chiropractor’s wife, who worked as a physical therapist. The field intrigued Josh, and he spent time learning more on his own about physical therapy. M I S S ION M I S S ION LOGAN COLLEGE OF CHIROPRACTIC Logan College of Chiropractic prepares students to become doctors of chiropractic who are superbly educated and clinically competent, practicing portal-of-entry chiropractic physicians. This mission is accomplished through our dedicated faculty, recognized for student-centered excellence; comprehensive science-driven, knowledge-based and information-facilitated curriculum; enhanced by community and public service. The institution is committed to the conduct of research and other scholarly activities. 8 LOGAN COLLEGE OF CHIROPRACTIC/UNIVERSITY PROGRAMS SCIENCE AND NATURE ALIGNED IN BALANCE During his research, Josh discovered that to become a doctor of physical therapy, he would need 100 hours of volunteer service in a hospital or nursing home. That following summer, Josh knocked out all 100 hours in five areas of physical therapy around his hometown Reidsville, N.C. Even though he was armed with newfound experience, again Josh felt conflicted. While he enjoyed the physical therapy setting, he personally did not feel moved to pursue that career path. “I was pushing for it, but it just didn’t seem to be going in my favor.” Though Logan was much farther from his hometown, the choice for Josh was clear. “When you think about four years and put a dollar amount on it, I’d rather spend the four years away from home than have an even greater amount of debt after graduation. “Logan had everything I liked and wanted out of a chiropractic education.” ON THE RIGHT TRACK Last summer, Josh enrolled in the Accelerated Science Program (ASP) at Logan with the intention of pursuing his Doctorate of Chiropractic (DC). While he could have enrolled at a North Carolina college to fulfill chemistry and physics prerequisites, Josh felt compelled to get to Logan to start his education. The first factor was timing. “I wanted to start the DC program in May, because the summer DC class is always the smallest,” he said. “Taking my chemistry and physics classes at Logan would allow me to start in May. It would have taken me a lot longer to get through courses at another college.” Another deciding factor in coming to Logan for the ASP was the opportunity to get immersed in the learning environment and acclimated to the surrounding area, prior to starting the DC program. Arriving on campus last fall, Josh said Logan exceeded his expectations on all levels. Inside the classroom, he was impressed with his professors’ open-door policies and their willingness to go above and beyond to promote student success. Outside of the classroom, his fellow ASP students became family. “Since the second week, we’ve studied together and gone to dinner together, and everyone has each other’s cell phone numbers,” Josh said. “I like that aspect a lot, and that’s another reason why the summer start date works for me. I’ll already know half of the students going into the DC program.” He embraces the fast-paced curriculum of the ASP as a way to start the DC program sooner. “My schedule is tight, but that’s what I chose,” he said. “I know why I’m here and I know my purpose.” As an added bonus, by earning his ASP credits at Logan, Josh will earn another bachelor’s degree—this time in life sciences— and has the option of earning a master’s degree in sports science and rehabilitation concurrently with the DC degree, which he plans to pursue. “It’s like Logan is this Ivy League college among the chiropractic schools and it’s a secret,” he said. “It’s a like a hidden gem in St. Louis.” After graduation, Josh plans to return to his North Carolina roots and explore his options, whether it’s working in a group practice or opening his own clinic. For now, he plans to take advantage of all Logan has to offer to help prepare him for a career in chiropractic. “This is a second career for me. With family support, I dropped everything, and some people frowned upon that,” he said. “But I was 32 and thought, ‘I’m still young. Why not follow my dreams?’” SPRING 2013 A TURNING POINT Determined to find his purpose, Josh contacted his friend and April 2008 Logan graduate Dr. Jeremy Phillips through Facebook. His ask was simple: He wanted to explore the chiropractic profession. Dr. Phillips invited Josh to spend the day at his Greensboro, N.C., practice, Elite Performance Chiropractic. Josh’s time spent with Dr. Phillips was an eye-opening experience. Over the course of 10 hours, he was exposed to the philosophy and techniques of chiropractic care. During lunch, Dr. Phillips made a case for Logan’s curriculum, and encouraged Josh to attend an open house. “He basically said, ‘what do you have to lose? A plane ticket?’” Josh said. “So I attended Slice of Logan.” Josh’s first visit to Logan was jam-packed with campus tours; meet-and-greets with potential students, faculty and administration; and sightseeing around St. Louis. “I admit, it was a bit overwhelming, but when I drove back to campus for my interview, which was the last one of the day, I had a sense of calmness.” Over dinner that evening, Josh contemplated the decision. Everything, he said, seemed to check off on his mental list: cost, hospitality, caliber of education and philosophy. Upon arriving back home, Josh went online to Logan’s website to find more information. About halfway through the application process, Josh received a text from his realtor. His condo, which was on the market, received an offer. Within a matter of hours the condo was sold—and then, reality set in. “I knew I was ready to go, but I didn’t know where I was going.” Two weeks later, Josh decided to check out one other chiropractic school at the urging of a friend. After that visit, he knew it was crunch time. His counseling job would start again soon and he needed to decide whether to pursue a physical therapy career, in which he had already invested much time. “I moved out of my condo, and at that point, I chose chiropractic over physical therapy,” he said. “The school visits solidified my decision and gave me affirmation, but I was still torn on which chiropractic college to attend.” It ended up coming down to two deciding factors: the cost of attending Logan was cheaper and the pass rates for state boards at Logan were higher. 9 SCHOLARSHIPS AND AWARDS Benefactors Give Back to Education, Award New Scholarships Recipients TJ Reichert and Libby Paskey Share Their Chiropractic Journeys Benefactors represent some of Logan’s most loyal and generous donors who give $1,000 or more annually. It is because of their continuous support that our students are afforded innovative curriculum afforded innovative curriculum andand clinical training programs. And now, our Benefactors’ gifts will provide Logan students with even more. From this year forward, 10 percent of each Benefactors’ $1,000 gift is designated for the Logan Benefactors’ Scholarships. In 2012, we collected $8,600 in scholarship monies from our Benefactors’ donations, making it possible for Logan to award two $4,300 scholarships: The Accelerated Science Program to the Doctor of Chiropractic Program and Master’s Degree Concurrent Program Scholarship. These inaugural awards were presented to two students during the annual scholarship luncheon held in February. While the exchange honored the students and their scholastic achievements, it also symbolized one of Logan’s greatest gifts: the support of an engaged and generous community committed to student success. Meet our first recipients, TJ Reichert and Libby Paskey, who will each receive a $4,300 scholarship thanks to our loyal Benefactors. an email announcing its call for applications. He submitted an essay with two letters of recommendation, and a few weeks later, he received the good news. TJ says the $4,300 scholarship will help pay off some student loans. “I didn’t know how many people would apply for the scholarship, so when I found out I received it, I was very surprised,” he said. After graduation, TJ hopes to return to Marshall, which currently lacks a strong chiropractic presence, and open his own practice. He says once he establishes his practice, he will look for ways to pay it forward for future Logan students, just as today’s Benefactors have supported his educational goals. “I am thankful for everything our alumni and donors have done for the school,” he said. “We have a great network of alumni who help make this school, in my opinion, the best school in the country.” Tyrel Reichert (left) with Carl W. Saubert, IV, PhD, Logan’s vice president of academic affairs. “My chiropractor from back home just kept me going and was able to get me competing again,” he explained. Finally, after a year of rehab, TJ returned to the arena. It was at that moment when he knew he wanted to pursue a career in chiropractic. After fulfilling his undergraduate studies at Northwestern Oklahoma State University in Alva, Okla., and Missouri Valley College in Marshall, Mo.—two schools where he competitively rodeoed—TJ’s chiropractors from home roped him in to visiting Logan. “Once I toured the campus and talked to more people, I knew it was the best place for me to start my career,” he said. TJ also made another important decision: He would pursue the concurrent DC/Master of Science Degree in Sports Science and Rehabilitation. “The master’s in sports science and rehab will take my career further,” he explained. “I want to continue with rodeo by practicing chiropractic, and I believe the master’s degree combined with DC will help me expand my market potential.” Now a Tri-9 student, TJ applied for the new Benefactors’ Scholarship after reading Wisconsin Transplant Followed Her Chiropractic Ambitions to Missouri Excited. Relieved. Thankful. Those were just a few emotions running through Libby Paskey when Logan notified her about receiving the Benefactors’ Scholarship. A Tri-1 student, Libby is just beginning her chiropractic studies, but she has quickly learned a valuable lesson: Logan will provide her with the education and hands-on experience she needs to succeed in practice, and the alumni and donor community will be there to advance her DC path. Before deciding to pursue a chiropractic career, Libby studied psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWMilwaukee). Determined to pursue a career in health, she was intrigued by chiropractic and its natural healing methods. “I knew I didn’t want to do anything invasive, and that I wanted to help people,” Libby explained. “I saw a chiropractor for some pain, and I just came to understand the importance of the practice, and how much it can benefit and impact people’s lives.” Soon, everything began falling into place. After graduating from UW-Milwaukee, she Equestrian Injury Sparks Chiropractic Pursuit Tyrel “TJ” Reichert has been knocked down a time or two. Working as a rodeo cowboy while growing up, he never stayed down for long. But when the Illinois City, Ill., native suffered a freak accident while riding a horse on his thirteenth birthday, he didn’t know if this time, after breaking his neck in three different places, he could recover. Never one to quit, TJ was determined to get back in the saddle and began rehabilitation. It was during his many sessions with his local chiropractor that he realized how chiropractic supports the body’s natural healing capacity. SCIENCE AND NATURE ALIGNED IN BALANCE 10 L O G A N C O L L E G E O F C H I R O P R A C T I C / U N I V E R S I T Y P R O G R A M S Spring 2013 Merit Scholarships Twenty-five Logan students were awarded Merit Scholarships for spring 2013.

Scholarship Recipient Amount made the trek south to Missouri to visit Logan and was instantly impressed with the campus. “I went to the Slice of Logan event, and I loved the structure of the courses and the ASP offering,” Libby said. “The amount of support that’s offered here was all it took for me to fall in love with this place.” Libby said goodbye to her family and friends, packed her bags, and moved to St. Louis. “It was kind of scary,” she recalled of her move. “But I’ve met so many people so far, and I am amazed at how many people I already know here. Everyone is very supportive, no matter what trimester you’re in.” Libby says she will apply her Benefactors’ Scholarship toward student loans. Like many of her fellow Logan students, she is paying for her chiropractic education herself. After graduation, Libby is certain that she too will support Logan and its future students, who will some day occupy the school hallways she currently walks. “I would love to be able to give back not only monetarily, but also with any support, encouragement or services that I can provide to the school,” she explained. “Giving back is contagious—it can start with one person and quickly spread throughout the community. I want to be a part of that movement. “I am very grateful to our benefactors who continue investing in the profession and Logan,” she said. “It is not just the professors and students who make this school so strong and sustainable; it’s also our outstanding alumni and donors. I am very thankful that they want us to succeed and are willing to support us.” For more information about joining the Benefactors' Circle, visit www.logan.edu/benefactors or contact Patricia Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org or 636-230-1905.

But for April 2003 Logan graduate Dr. Nicole Bennett, the more than 1,100 miles distance between her practice, Bennett Chiropractic & Wellness, and Logan never seemed out of reach. Dr. Bennett’s role as an active alumni member earned her positions with Logan’s Alumni Association, including service as a member on its board, most recently, as secretary. This month, she’ll move on to a position that will bring her even closer to Logan and its leadership as she accepts her appointment as the alumni representative to the Logan Board of Trustees. The connection Dr. Bennett enjoys with Logan, which has extended now for 10 years since her graduation, is essential for her practice and professional development. “When you live on an island with a population of 6,000 residents and 35,000 visitors annually, you have to create a robust referral network,” explained Dr. Bennett. “As a Logan graduate, I have the advantage of patients “As a Logan graduate, I have seeking out Logan the advantage of patients doctors because we’re considered the best seeking out Logan doctors adjusters, and through our strong alumni because we’re considered the association we can refer best adjusters, and through our our patients who travel or move to new cities.” “I’m honored to serve as the voice between the Logan alumni and the board of trustees, and am committed to working hard on behalf of our alumni community and Logan,” she said. “To keep Logan as the premier chiropractic college requires support from its students, current and past. We need to take advantage of opportunities where we can come home to Logan and network, and learn from other doctors, meet the student body, and stay involved in the future success of our alma mater.” Dr. Bennett credits the work of Logan’s past President Dr. George A. Goodman for creating a campus and curricula designed to attract future chiropractic leaders. She said she’s excited about her role with the board of trustees because she can partner with Logan’s new leadership to build upon the school’s reputation and secure its position as the number one chiropractic college in the country for years to come. “The involvement of Logan’s alumni community is critical for our future growth,” she said. “As Logan graduates, it’s our responsibility to help carry on Logan’s tradition of excellence through our patient care, student referrals and engagement. I’d like to invite alumni who haven’t been on campus recently to come to Homecoming and see all of the positive changes. You will be amazed. I also want to encourage Logan’s students to take part in Homecoming and events where they can meet with Logan graduates to network and advance their professional development.” Dr. Bennett says when patients and the community see active alumni who love and support their college, they respond. “We’ve been given an excellent place to learn chiropractic and graduate high-caliber doctors,” she said. “Let us take all that we’ve learned and share it with the next generation of Logan graduates.” strong alumni association we can refer our patients who travel or move to new cities.” While the Logan community works to support Dr. Bennett regardless of time and distance, she deserves credit for her role in cultivating a relationship with Logan that transcended her student experience into private practice. Logan graduates entrust the care of their vacationing patients and willingly offer referrals to Dr. Bennett because of her reputation as a loyal alumna, specifically the results she achieves with her patients, and her ability to treat the complex and comorbid conditions that affect the aging population. And Dr. Bennett does not take their trust or her role as a Logan alumna for granted.

On March 1, she closed her Logan chapter to start a new job and life on the East Coast where family members reside. “It’s always difficult leaving what’s comfortable for something new, but I’m looking at this move as a new adventure,” Marcella said the week before she left. “I’ve watched Logan grow tremendously and improve over the years. I hope it continues to grow and succeed, and I wish everyone well.” Marcella started her career at Logan in August 1999 after relocating to St. Louis for her husband’s job. Previously, she worked at Milliken University in Decatur, Ill., and knew she wanted to stay in an education-related field. “I come from a background of teachers, and I loved the school environment and working around the kids,” she said. “Logan had an opening, I applied and started as an accountant.” Marcella said she was excited to join Logan at the ground level and grow with the school, which at that time, was working to obtain university status. Over the course of 12 years, she watched the campus expand and the student enrollment grow as she worked her way up to senior accountant, and then CFO in December 2005. Dr. Carl W. Saubert IV, vice president of academic affairs, said Marcella has made important contributions, ensuring that Logan has been, and continues to be, in a position of sound and stable financial health. “As a member of the Logan Cabinet, she has also played an integral role in Logan’s strategic growth and progress,” he said. “Her immeasurable contributions will be sorely missed.” In Massachusetts, Marcella will work as the director of finance and administration for a local college. Despite the more than 1,300 miles separating Marcella from Logan, she vows to remain connected to Logan and her former colleagues, and to continue serving as a donor. “What I’ve enjoyed the most about working at Logan has been the people,” she said. “They are a tremendous group to work with and everyone is supportive. It’s what I’ll miss the most.” Former Faculty Member Dr. Ron Grant Returns to Logan It’s fitting that the new faculty representative for Logan’s board of trustees has 23 years of experience teaching at Logan, and has earned the trust and support of many professors and staff. The appointment marks a welcome return for Dr. Ronald Grant, who retired from teaching at Logan in 2011. Dr. Grant says he looks forward to serving as a voice for the more than 100 Logan faculty and staff members by taking their issues and concerns to the board of trustees. “I’ve always been close with the faculty and staff, serving as president of the faculty, chief of staff and an associate professor,” he said. “That involvement gave me insight into the needs of the faculty.” A native of Joplin, Mo., Dr. Grant graduated from National College of Chiropractic in 1963. However, it would be another 25 years before Dr. Grant would return to his home state. That opportunity came by way of a chance meeting with Logan’s president in the mid-1980s. He was working as the director of information resources for the American Chiropractic Association when he met Dr. Beatrice Hagen at a seminar in Toronto. “She mentioned if I was ever to contemplate a move, she would be very interested in having me come to Logan,” he said. “After I got back to Arlington, Va., I got to thinking and decided to give Dr. Hagen a call.” Dr. Grant started his Logan career as health center clinician in 1988. Within two years, he was named chief of staff—a title he kept for seven years before entering the classroom. “Teaching was in my blood,” he said. “I really enjoyed dealing directly with the students, and I felt I had a lot to offer that I wasn’t able to offer in the clinic.” Over the course of 23 years, Dr. Grant taught physical therapy, orthopedics and medical ethics, and assisted in chiropractic technique courses and spinal analysis labs while maintaining a private practice in Chesterfield. Although he’s no longer behind a podium in the classroom, Dr. Grant never truly left Logan. Since his departure, he has remained connected to the institution through regular chiropractic treatment, continuing education and postgraduate courses, and of course, personal connections. That ongoing involvement helped fuel Dr. Grant’s good rapport with the faculty and staff. He recalls a time, serving as president of the faculty committee, when an issue concerning parking needed addressing: “At that time, we didn’t have any assigned parking for the faculty and staff— it was just first come, first served. I sought to try and get that problem resolved, and we ended up designating an area closer to the building for staff. “In my new role, I think I can really help the faculty and staff by understanding their concerns,” he said. “I used to be one of them, and I almost consider myself still one of them. I want the faculty and staff to know that I am there for them.” S P R I N G 2 0 1 3 25 LOGAN NEWS Alumni NOTES Congratulations to … Class of September 1975 Dr. Katharine Conable traveled to Seoul, South Korea for the International College of Applied Kinesiology diplomate examinations, which were held at the offices of Dr. Seung-Won Lee, MD, DC.
