Logan University is a community of extraordinary leaders. Learn how these individuals are making an impact in their own communities, careers and beyond. ROBERT BOULIANE, DC (’00), BSC recently became the first chiropractor for the Cayman Islands Health Services Authority (HSA), bringing accessible and convenient chiropractic care to residents of the three islands located in the Caribbean Sea. He works alongside other medical service providers at the specialist clinic, where he uses state-ofthe-art equipment and techniques to address a multitude of health issues, including chronic pain, disc injuries and spinal stenosis. “In addition to injuries and spinal issues, many of my patients come to me for pain management and to reduce inflammation that may be causing other issues,” said Dr. Bouliane. “By making chiropractic treatment affordable and accessible, we are able to offer an integrated approach to many health conditions, which has led to positive outcomes and relief for patients.” Dr. Bouliane knew from an early age he wanted to become a doctor, but he wasn’t sure which specialty would be a good fit for his interests. After earning a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Windsor in Ontario, Canada, he was introduced to Logan University by a friend who was planning to attend. “Once I visited campus, met with faculty and learned more about the goals of the chiropractic profession, I knew this was exactly what I was meant to do—it fits with all my life philosophies,” he said. Upon graduation, Dr. Bouliane moved back to his hometown in Canada and opened a solo practice. After eight years, 6 SPRING 2022 • LOGAN UNIVERSITY

of course, and most welcomed by the medical doctors I work with, including neurosurgeons and internal medicine physicians. I believe my approach of educating MDs on how chiropractic care can offer alternative solutions or work in tandem with other treatments that focus on patient wellness has led them to respect the profession and refer many patients my way.”

Dr. Robert Bouliane

he decided to expand his horizons and move to Grand Cayman Island. While there, he worked closely with a government hospital and its pain management division. He also met his wife, Christyna, who is also Canadian, during his five years on the island. They moved back to Canada briefly but returned to Grand Cayman in 2020 with their daughter, Aubrey. “I had made many great contacts in Grand Cayman, and once I returned, the HSA, which is the country’s principal health care facility, was ready to create this full-time, in-house position to provide chiropractic care for residents,” he said. “It has been well received by patients,

TAYLOR FORD, CSCS knew from an early age she wanted to work with athletes. As a child she played soccer and softball and ran track, but basketball quickly became her favorite. She played for Hickman High School in Columbia, Missouri, and then joined the women’s basketball team at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock where she earned a bachelor’s degree in health sciences. After college, Taylor continued her basketball journey by playing professionally for three years in Taiwan, the Dominican Republic and Spain. In her last year as a professional basketball player, Taylor began planning her future by working toward a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) certification. During that time, she also secured an internship at Stanford University where she helped athletes with their lifts, assisted volleyball, football, gymnastics, and swim and dive coaches, and analyzed data for teams. “It was great to get hands-on experience with elite college athletes and solidify the path I wanted to take in my career,” she said. After Stanford, Taylor obtained an internship at Frostburg State University in Maryland where she coached men’s and women’s tennis, women’s basketball and the swim and dive team, which broke nine

L E A DE R S MA DE school records under her leadership. “After two successful and motivating internships, I knew I had to take my career to the next level so I could focus on my goal, which was to have a facility for athletes to train and transition between the phases of their athletic careers,” Taylor said. “When I transitioned from a high school to a college to a professional athlete, I did not have access to a place where training and strength conditioning were the focus.” In August 2021, Taylor enrolled in Logan University’s Master of Science in Sports Science & Rehabilitation (MS-SSR) program. “My goal is to expand my knowledge of the human body and dive deeper into the science behind strength and conditioning, and the Logan degree offers just that,” she said. While working on her MS-SSR, Taylor is also serving as the assistant strength coach at the University of Florida in Gainesville for the women’s tennis and basketball teams. “I look forward to finishing my degree at the end of this year and helping the next generation of athletes be physically and mentally stronger,” she said.

Being a student or an educator for most of his life, MARCUS DE GEER, DC (’01), MD is passionate about learning and teaching. “I’ve always been curious, which is an important aspect of learning,” Dr. De Geer said. “I want to instill a passion for perpetual learning within my students.” A professor in Logan’s Doctor of Chiropractic program, Dr. De Geer said that surprisingly, he aspired to be a classical musician before deciding to become a medical doctor. Growing up in Stockholm, Sweden, Dr. De Geer took up piano at a young age. He dreamed of becoming a professional pianist, but his parents strongly encouraged him to pursue medicine. After working as a medical doctor in Sweden, Dr. De Geer immigrated to the U.S. to practice medicine in Chicago, where he realized he wanted to pursue a different career.

“I really like interacting with patients, and although I didn’t particularly like working as a medical doctor, I love the idea of helping other human beings,” he said. Considering other professions to help improve the health of others, Dr. De Geer recalled how a Swedish chiropractor had successfully treated his headaches. With a newfound appreciation for chiropractic, Dr. De Geer completed his studies at Logan and began teaching shortly thereafter. His experience as a medical doctor has influenced his career as a practicing chiropractor and professor. “When I see a patient, I don’t think I need to put on one hat for either an MD or a DC,” he said. “I just wear my hat as a health care provider, and all of my knowledge melds together. The more I know from different points of view, the more confident I feel with my patients. It’s a great advantage and has made me a better diagnostician and teacher.” Having taught at Logan for nearly 20 years, Dr. De Geer is not only admired by his students and colleagues, but he also has a strong bond with the university, noting that he would not commit himself to anything if he were not passionate. “I’m grateful to be at an institution like Logan with such a nice atmosphere to teach alongside extremely well-trained colleagues and instructors,” Dr. De Geer said.

Logan to Host WFC ACC Global Education Conference this November Logan University and the World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) maintain a long-standing partnership built upon a shared mission to advance the chiropractic profession across the globe. The organizations’ relationship recently evolved when Logan was invited to host the 11th WFC Association of Chiropractic Colleges (ACC) Global Education Conference November 2-5, 2022. Logan’s affiliation with the WFC, which currently represents national associations of chiropractors in more than 90 countries, grew from a connection between Logan President Clay McDonald, DC (’82), MBA, JD and WFC Secretary-General Richard Brown, DC, LLM, FEAC, FRCC. After getting to know each other at meetings and conferences, the two agreed to expand the partnership between their organizations. In June 2020, Logan became the WFC’s premier corporate partner. “Logan and the WFC are strongly aligned in mission, vision and values,” Dr. McDonald said. “For many years, it has served Logan well as a resource, supporter and champion of our students, faculty and graduates. As an international organization, it also gives Logan the opportunity to stay abreast of, contribute to and participate in the ever-changing world of global health care.” The organizations strengthened their ties even further in August 2021 when the WFC invited Logan to become the WFC ACC Global Education Conference’s venue sponsor. “The Logan University campus is spectacular and among the most beautiful I have visited, and the chance to deliver a presentation to students at the Purser Center in 2016 was an honor I’ll never forget,” Dr. Brown said. “Between my experience, Logan’s central and easily accessible location in the United States, and our mutual relationship with the conference’s premier sponsor, Activator Methods International, all the stars aligned. We were thrilled when Technique Lab Dr. McDonald agreed to let us host an event 8 SPRING 2022 • LOGAN UNIVERSITY

of such global relevance on Logan’s campus.” The conference will attract educators, researchers, academics and association leaders from around the world, showcasing the very best in chiropractic educational learning, innovation and research. This year’s theme is “Leveling Up: Creating Consistency in Chiropractic Education.” “A lack of consistency in chiropractic education is one of the biggest global challenges facing our profession,” Dr. Brown said. “This year’s conference theme will spotlight the importance of ensuring all

chiropractors have a similar skill set and have mastered key competencies regardless of the school they graduated from or the country where they practice.” As venue sponsor and a member of the conference’s planning committee, Dr. McDonald is looking forward to welcoming industry leaders to Logan as well as continuing to bolster the university’s relationship with the WFC. “To change health care for the better, you have to think globally,” Dr. McDonald said. “While the U.S. may have pioneered the


“To change health care for the better, you have to think globally.” – Dr. Clay McDonald chiropractic profession, more schools and practices are opening up around the world every day. Cultivating Logan’s partnership with the WFC is critical to achieving our shared objective of improving access to chiropractic care everywhere.” For the WFC, working with organizations like Logan is critical to fulfilling its goal to be “EPIC,” or evidence-based, people-centered,


interprofessional and collaborative. “Logan and the WFC are so much stronger together when working toward a common target,” Dr. Brown said. “We hope to continue developing our partnership to become the best versions of ourselves that we can be.” While there is synchrony between Logan and the WFC, Drs. McDonald and Brown also have a lot in common. Both men grew up in rural areas, have advanced law degrees and share a passion for chiropractic education. “Dr. McDonald is a catalyst for change,” Dr. Brown said. “He stands for the same things I do. There is a natural chemistry between us that stems from our positivity,

enthusiasm and drive to make things happen in the world of chiropractic. I have tremendous respect for our relationship.” Authors from all nations are encouraged to submit abstracts for the WFC ACC Global Education Conference before June 1, 2022, that describe their chiropractic educational research and innovations. Material should be pertinent to teaching, learning, assessment, evaluation, faculty development, governance or any area of education.

Alumna Dr. Holly Tucker Reappointed to WFC Council Holly Tucker, DC (’11), MPH, CHES, FASA was recently reappointed to the World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) Board of Directors as a representative for North America. “My primary role is to represent our region by being involved in the promotion and advancement of the chiropractic profession globally,” Dr. Tucker said. “My goal is to serve as a bridge of communication between chiropractors here and around the world. I share health care developments and trends happening in the U.S. with representatives from other regions, and I report on what’s happening around the globe to the chiropractic community here.”

First appointed to the WFC Council in 2019, Dr. Tucker has always been passionate about advancing chiropractic to increase interprofessional collaboration in health care. After graduating from Logan, she interned for the World Health Organization (WHO) and went on to earn a master’s degree in public health. She is also involved in numerous state and national organizations, including the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), American Public Health Association’s Chiropractic Health Care Section, and the Tennessee Chiropractic Association. “We have a lot of work to do to ensure chiropractors fit into the global health care landscape,” Dr. Tucker said. “I enjoy being a part of an organization like the WFC that is dedicated to moving our profession forward, not only in the U.S. but throughout the world.” Through her position on the Board of Directors, Dr. Tucker is working on progressing a variety of WFC initiatives, including making it easier for DCs to practice in multiple countries. “Improving mobility for chiropractors can help grow the profession in other regions so more people have access to care,” she said. Representing early career chiropractors, Dr. Tucker brings a unique perspective to the organization. “I’m a voice for newer DCs,” she said. “I advocate for incorporating the latest trends

Dr. Holly Tucker

and ensuring we remain nimble in our efforts to promote what’s going on in the world of chiropractic.” The professional connections Dr. Tucker made as a Logan student helped inspire her career. “During my second trimester, a recent graduate and student ACA leader came to Logan to talk about her experience being the first chiropractor accepted to the WHO Internship Programme,” Dr. Tucker said. “Hearing her speak set my sights on something bigger than just graduating. From that day on, I knew I wanted to make a positive impact on the health care system around the world.”


DC Student Takes Career Dreams to the Ice Rink As National Hockey League (NHL) legend Wayne Gretzky once said, “You miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take.” For trimester 10 student Ashley Fox, one shot—or, in her case, one Instagram message— was all it took for her to realize her dream of working with professional hockey players. Ashley found a new way to network: social media. While scrolling through Instagram during her seventh trimester, she came across the profile of retired Boston Bruins player Jeff LoVecchio. Originally from St. Louis, Jeff now trains elite hockey players from the 18U AAA to the NHL level. “He has over 11,000 followers on Instagram, so I didn’t think he would even see my message, but I thought, ‘Why not?’ and direct messaged him to see if there were any opportunities to work with him,” Ashley said. “He got back to me right away and invited me to come check out their gym and watch his training sessions.” Before she knew it, Ashley was assisting Jeff’s athletes during training sessions. Now, having worked under Jeff’s leadership for the past year, Ashley is looking for the next opportunity in her path toward providing chiropractic care to professional hockey players. “I want to work with hockey players because it’s an area of sports medicine that isn’t fully understood since they are biomechanically different than any other athlete,” Ashley said. “I want to create a space where I can observe their skating and see how I can help them improve while they’re on the ice.” Originally from North Detroit, Ashley’s goal is to work as a team chiropractor for her hometown team, the Detroit Red Wings. On a recent trip to Detroit to observe the USA National Hockey Team’s training session, she ran into Missy Holas, DC, the Red Wings’ team chiropractor. The two connected, and Ashley is now under Dr. Holas’ mentorship. “My biggest advice to other Logan students is to not be afraid to reach out, even if someone seems like they are high LOGAN.EDU/GIVE

profile and out of reach,” Ashley said. “I’ve found that most people are willing to help others and want to spread their knowledge.” Ashley is thankful for the opportunities she’s had at Logan to not only network and provide care to elite hockey players but also to specialize in her field by simultaneously pursuing her Master of Science in Sports Science & Rehabilitation (MS-SSR) degree. She’s gearing up for graduation this April and a lead clinician position for LifeClinic in Commerce Township, Michigan, where she will be running her own sports chiropractic clinic. “If you focus your attention on one area throughout the entire program, you will discover so many treatment options for the sport you want to go into,” she said. Ashley is excited to continue working toward becoming an NHL chiropractor while also paving the way for future Logan

students interested in treating hockey players. This year, Logan partnered with St. Louis AAA Blues hockey, and Ashley worked with Logan faculty Trimester 10 student Ashley Fox clinician Devon Akroyd, DC, MS, DACBSP®, Cert. MDT to cover hockey games at the Centene Community Ice Center in Maryland Heights, Missouri. “I’ve had amazing help from Logan; each of my clinicians has encouraged me and my career vision,” Ashley said.

Students Gain Sports Chiropractic Experience Through Affiliation with AAA Blues After family chiropractic, DCs choose to specialize in sports chiropractic more often than any other area, according to a recent Chiropractic Economics survey. “Athletes are turning to sports chiropractors for help minimizing injuries and maximizing performance more than ever before,” said Devon Ackroyd, DC, MS, DACBSP®, Cert. MDT, Logan faculty clinician. “We also have a lot of sportsminded students who are interested in being a part of this growing field, so it’s important to give them opportunities to gain experience through partnerships and professional affiliations with a variety of athletic organizations.” Dr. Ackroyd recently worked with trimester 10 DC student Ashley Fox, who is also pursuing her Master of Sports Science & Rehabilitation (MS-SSR) degree, to establish a professional affiliation with St. Louis AAA Blues hockey, one of the premier Tier I AAA youth hockey organizations

Members of the St. Louis AAA Blues hockey team 12 SPRING 2022 • LOGAN UNIVERSITY

in the United States. With an interest in becoming a team chiropractor in the National Hockey League (NHL), Ashley had been assisting the organization’s players under the age of 18 (18U) during training sessions while Dr. Ackroyd was providing rinkside care at some of their games. “Our connections, particularly Ashley’s, played a big role in furthering Logan’s relationship with St. Louis AAA Blues hockey,” Dr. Ackroyd said. “Now, the 18U athletes come to the Montgomery Health Center on a routine basis to be seen by our student interns, and we hope to expand the affiliation by serving the entire organization, which includes teams for both boys and girls at all age groups.” Dr. Ackroyd has enjoyed working with Ashley to help her realize her dream of

providing chiropractic care to professional hockey players. “Ashley has everything it takes to be an outstanding sports chiropractor,” Dr. Ackroyd said. “In addition to her manual therapy Dr. Devon Ackroyd ability, she has the essential social skills needed to connect and build trust with patients. My hope is that our partnerships and professional affiliations continue helping more students develop these essential qualities.” In addition to being affiliated with AAA Blues hockey, Logan is also the official chiropractic partner for the University of Missouri-Columbia, the University of Memphis athletics and the Olympic-level USA Para Powerlifting. These relationships, as well as those with sports teams at Fontbonne University, Harris-Stowe State University, Missouri Rush Soccer Club, Platinum Athletics and others in St. Louis, provide opportunities for Logan students to gain real-world experience. “These professional affiliations with athletic teams expose Logan’s DC students to the full range of services chiropractors can offer beyond just adjusting the spine,” Dr. Ackroyd said. “It includes helping athletes, like the AAA Blues, perform at the top of their game both on and off the ice.”


From Classmates to Friends: MS-HI Students Bond Throughout Online Program After Melissa Warren, Nancy Kirkland and Delphine Nchako began Logan University’s online Master of Science in Health Informatics (MS-HI) program in January 2020, it didn’t take long for them to realize they needed to lean on one another for support. They started a group text message to ask questions about assignments, coordinated Zoom meetings so they could talk through challenges, and bounced ideas off one another through a discussion board. They included Nafisat Bale in their collaborations when she joined their cohort several months later. “The texts, Zooms and discussion board posts not only motivated us to stay on track in the program, but they also brought us closer together,” said Nancy, a data technician at Baptist Memorial Health Care Corporation in Memphis, Tennessee. “Over time, we went from being just classmates to becoming friends.” Eager to meet in person after more than a year of communicating online, they decided to connect during the fall 2021 commencement ceremony December 17-18. “I saved a table so all of us could sit together before the graduation awards

ceremony,” said Melissa, Logan’s associate director of strategic performance. “Even though Nafisat wasn’t able to come, it was amazing for Nancy, Delphine and I to finally get together face-to-face.” During the ceremony, Melissa earned Logan’s Service, Leaders Made and RESPECT awards. Nancy obtained a Leaders Made Award, and Delphine received a RESPECT Award. “We had a lot to celebrate, so we went back to my office where MS-HI Program Director Dr. Deshae Redden and Logan’s entire strategic performance department ended up throwing

a surprise graduation party for us,” Melissa said. “It was wonderful to be together, laughing and talking.” Melissa, Nancy and Delphine attended the commencement ceremony at the William D. Purser, DC Center the following morning while Nafisat livestreamed it from her home in Virginia. “My MS-HI classmates sent me a picture of my seat at the ceremony, which was very sweet,” Nafisat said. “I also appreciated having my name displayed on the screen and my name called even though I wasn’t there in person.” After months of supporting one another from afar, Melissa, Nancy and Delphine enjoyed walking across the stage together. “Finishing the program with the women I started it with was rewarding and sentimental,” Nancy said. The graduates wrapped up commencement weekend with a Sunday breakfast at Cracker Barrel, and all four continue to keep in touch. They texted photos of their diplomas after receiving them in the mail in early January. They send job openings to one another. Melissa is planning a trip to Memphis this spring to visit Nancy. “Although the MS-HI is an online program, the friendships you’re able to make can last a lifetime,” Melissa said. “I advise new students to connect with their cohorts. You’re all going through the same thing and can support one another every step of the way. You are never alone.” LOGAN UNIVERSITY • SPRING 2022 13


On the Road with Scott Bird For more than 30 years, Scott Bird, CSCS, RSCC*E has been helping people develop physically and mentally to reach their goals and find success through strength and conditioning. “Initially, I thought I wanted to coach, but I struggled to decide on a specific sport,” Scott said. “Once I started learning about strength and conditioning, I realized it was a great fit because it would allow me to help athletes from a variety of backgrounds.” Scott has worked in strength and conditioning for many schools and universities through the years, and he recently decided to shift his focus.

“When I was approached with the opportunity to be part of Logan’s Master of Science in Strength & Conditioning (MS-SC) program, I was immediately interested and really liked the direction the program was taking,” said Scott. “As the program’s field experience coordinator, I’m still working in the field I love, and I’m able to help people reach their goals. Now, I’m just assisting coaches instead of athletes.” The MS-SC program was built to provide

actionable skills and knowledge to strength and conditioning industry professionals. Graduates of the program will have the necessary tools to enhance their current role, advance their career through a promotion or salary increase, move into an administrative position after coaching and more. “One of the biggest complaints I hear from people who earned a master’s degree elsewhere is that the material taught in the


program might not be applicable to their everyday job,” Scott said. “We designed the classes in Logan’s MS-SC program with this in mind.” Scott has put rubber on the road for the last eight months, traveling across the United States to spread the word about the MS-SC program and develop partnerships with a variety of organizations. “Since I’ve spent more than three decades in the strength and conditioning industry, I’m fortunate to have created some great connections, which I’m now utilizing for our students,” said Scott. “My goal is to have a wide range of partner organizations so we can place each student

in the perfect internship location to allow them to learn and grow exponentially.” From high school, university and professional sports teams to educational institutions, private gyms and training facilities, and tactical settings for the military and first responders, Scott is ensuring new partnerships span all industries and areas of interest. “As new students are being accepted into the MS-SC program, I’m finding even more organizations to partner with based on student interest, goals and geographic location,” Scott said. “And if we don’t have an existing partnership in place that fits a student’s goals, I will go out and

create one.” Once students have secured internships, Scott will continuously perform evaluations to ensure the student and the organization are benefiting from the partnership. “It’s been exciting to help build a program from the ground up, especially since I’m surrounded by so many brilliant minds,” Scott said. “Each faculty member is currently working in the strength and conditioning field, which means the curriculum will remain relevant and cutting edge.” Logan’s MS-SC launches this summer.

Graduate Aspires to ‘Serve Those Who Serve’ with Clinic for First Responders Burning building. Car accident. Seizure. Respiratory distress. Stroke. Cardiac arrest. These are just a handful of emergencies that EMTs, paramedics, firefighters and police officers respond to every day. They are trained to save lives, but sometimes doing so comes at a cost to their own health and wellbeing. “First responders work a minimum shift of 12 hours and can go up to 24 hours. Many of them are experiencing aches and pains but have to work through it,” said Taylor Graham, DC (’21), licensed EMT and aspiring firefighter. “Generally, first responders are not compensated well, and they don’t often have access to great care, so I asked myself: How can I bridge the gap between medical care, chiropractic care and first responders?” The answer: ChiroTactics. Designed to serve those who serve, Dr. Graham takes a tactical, integrated approach to optimum health for first responders. In addition to manual therapy and chiropractic care, Dr. Graham offers nutritional counseling and whole-body wellness care. He eventually plans to have a fully integrated clinic that also offers massage therapy, physical therapy, personal training, premade healthy meals and more. His mantra is to empower others through education and care. While working to finalize a brickand-mortar location in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Dr. Graham is traveling to fire and police departments to offer chiropractic care as a concierge service. “If a first responder is working from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., they miss all available office hours at a typical chiropractic clinic or doctor’s office,” said Dr. Graham. “By traveling to them, I can provide care when they’re not on an emergent call. To my knowledge, this model in the U.S. doesn’t exist.” 18 SPRING 2022 • LOGAN UNIVERSITY

With a passion for conservative care— which led him to Logan for his DC degree— and an interest in immediate care—which drove him to pursue his EMT license and will hopefully land him a spot in the fire academy

Dr. Taylor Graham

this spring—ChiroTactics is the best of both worlds for Dr. Graham. As part of his EMT training, he completed several hours of ridealongs and shadowing in the emergency room and ambulance that are making him a better health care provider—whether that’s

as a full-time EMT or chiropractor. “It was humbling and eye-opening to see what first responders deal with on a day-to-day basis,” said Dr. Graham. “Being on the front lines with first responders helps me treat them better because I understand the job and the equipment and how that extra load impacts the body.” For example, a police officer’s duty belt weighs 30 to 45 pounds, and a firefighter’s bunker gear, including the helmet, oxygen tank, coat, boots and more, weighs approximately 75 pounds. EMTs and paramedics lift hundreds of pounds each time they load and unload a patient on a stretcher from an ambulance. Simply put, first responders work in nonoptimal positions and circumstances each day, making access to conservative care all the more important to maintain optimal function, said Dr. Graham. He also understands firsthand the life-changing possibilities of chiropractic care and knows that the conservative care model plays a vital role in our society. “I was in a severe car wreck at 15 years old—I was rear-ended from a dead stop at 70 miles per hour. I was in a small car, she was in a big truck. All I remember is waking up in the grass,” he said. “I was discharged from the hospital that same night with strong painkillers that I couldn’t handle, and I spent the next week in bed throwing up and in excruciating pain. My mom tried to take me to many different

doctors who all said it was whiplash and wrote me off because I didn’t have health insurance. Finally, a chiropractor gave me a thorough exam and took X-rays, revealing a small hairline fracture and severe dysfunction and position in my upper thoracic and cervical spine. It took six months of adjustments paired with rehabilitation and strength and conditioning to repair the damage from the accident.” Whether as a chiropractor or first responder, Dr. Graham said being able to change a few people’s lives in the community he lives in makes it all worth it. “At the end of the day, I will be a career first responder and chiropractor. My day-to-day work will include extracting people from fires, treating them on the ambulance and treating my fellow first responders with chiropractic care while also being a loving husband to my wife, Virginia, and father to my new baby boy, Whit,” said Dr. Graham. “I have such a short life here on Earth. Why be selfish with it? I have a dream, and I’m going to work as hard as I can to achieve it and help as many people along the way as I can.” LOGAN.EDU/GIVE



Dr. Norman W. Kettner Publishes 21st Study on Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Norman W. Kettner, DC (’80), DACBR, FICC, dean of research and professor emeritus of Logan’s Department of Radiology, contributed to a study that Dr. Norman W. Kettner investigated how brain responses to electro-acupuncture (EA) within and beyond the primary somatosensory cortex (S-1) contribute to improved outcomes in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). The study, “S-1 Brain Connectivity in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Underlies Median Nerve and Functional Improvement Following Electro-Acupuncture,” was published in Frontiers in Neurology in October 2021. It is the latest in a series of 21 CTS-related studies Dr. Kettner has helped conduct since 2005. “This is the largest compilation of research exploring the connection between CTS and the brain in existence,” Dr. Kettner said. Dr. Kettner first became interested in studying CTS—a pain, numbness and tingling in the hand and arm caused by a pinched (entrapment and ischemia) nerve in the wrist—after seeing homunculus, a diagram showing sensory nerve receptor density in the human body reflected in a cortical map. “The sensory homunculus figure looks distorted with an extremely large head, mouth and hands because that is where most of our sensory nerve endings are concentrated,” he said. “While looking at it, I thought, ‘Which disorders would give me the opportunity to study the connections between these areas?’ Since CTS is the 20 SPRING 2022 • LOGAN UNIVERSITY

most common entrapment neuropathy seen in clinical practice, it made the most sense.” While previous studies he contributed to examine the effects of acupuncture on S-1 somatotopy and CTS patient outcomes, there was no research regarding the impact of EA-evoked brain responses within and beyond S-1. “Historically, we have focused on how S-1 and the primary motor cortex influence symptom severity and peripheral nerve health in CTS patients, but this newest study looks at other cortical and subcortical connectivity.” In their latest study, Dr. Kettner and his co-authors hypothesized: • S-1 connectivity during EA differs between patients with and without CTS. • Distal EA applied to the ankle and local EA given at the wrist alter the functional connectivity patterns linked to CTS and patients’ clinical outcomes, and brain connectivity altered by acupuncture is related to therapeutic response in CTS. • Functional plasticity associated with CTS includes connectivity between affected fingers and other areas of the brain besides S-1. Dr. Kettner and his team used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to evaluate S-1-associated whole brain connectivity during local, distal and sham (placebo) EA stimulation in participants with and without CTS over eight weeks. They found that connectivity between S-1 and other brain regions is disrupted in CTS patients and may be improved following EA. For example, verum (combined local and distal) EA increased connectivity between S-1 and the pulvinar nucleus of the thalamus, which was

correlated with improvements in median nerve velocity for those with CTS. During local EA, CTS patients demonstrated increased functional connectivity between S-1 and the anterior hippocampus. After eight weeks of local EA, S-1 and anterior hippocampus connectivity decreased, which was associated with an improvement in the patients’ functional status. According to Dr. Kettner, these findings demonstrate CTS and EA affect functional connectivity not only within S-1, but also between S-1 and other areas of the brain, including the pulvinar nucleus and the anterior hippocampus. “Neither the pulvinar nucleus nor the anterior hippocampus have ever been included in CTS studies involving acupuncture,” Dr. Kettner said. “Our findings reveal an expanded maladaptive brain plasticity beyond S-1 and further our understanding of how EA directed to local or distal body regions may lead to improvements in symptoms and peripheral median nerve dysfunction for those with CTS.” While Dr. Kettner and his colleagues have contributed a significant amount of research regarding the connection between CTS and the brain, he believes there is much to be discovered. “Think about your social network,” Dr. Kettner said. “It is dynamic, with people coming in and out, and some of your contacts are closer to you than others. The brain is the same. We could imagine looking at its 80 billion neurons and assessing all their levels of connectivity, potentially defining thousands of states of disease and mapping their neuroplastic interventions.” Scan the QR codes below for Dr. Kettner’s latest study (left) and a complete list of his research on CTS (right).

Logan Launches


Since founder Dr. Hugh B. Logan’s first class of seven students, Logan University’s curriculum has incorporated real-world, evidence-informed, patient-centered practice into daily instruction. Now, more than 85 years since its founding, Logan remains dedicated to teaching students the long-standing traditions of chiropractic technique while also preparing them to work in an integrated and ever-evolving health care environment. As part of this commitment and thanks to a generous lead gift of $1 million from Arlan W. Fuhr, DC (’61) and Judi Fuhr, Logan plans to renovate and expand the newly named Fuhr Science Center. Construction on this project, and a separate renovation of the Administration Building, will begin following a groundbreaking ceremony on May 12, 2022. Once complete, the updated 47,826-square-foot Fuhr Science Center will house state-of-the-art anatomy labs, an anatomage center, chiropractic technique labs, radiography center, student collaboration and study areas, and faculty offices. Updates to the Administration Building will include a remodeled Learning Resource Center and administration entry, classrooms and student collaboration spaces. Guided by the university’s mission and vision, the Advancing Education, Transforming Lives campaign is an investment in experiential, hands-on learning that will be funded through three efforts: financing through an existing long-term relationship with the university’s banking partner, a strategic spend in cash reserves and a fundraising campaign. The resources needed to respond to the fast-changing landscape of education and the cost to continuously provide the most up-to-date technology can be limiting for any university. Logan is a fiscally healthy institution with solid financial standing—an advantage that many peer institutions 22 SPRING 2022 • LOGAN UNIVERSITY

lack. The expansion and renovation of the Fuhr Science Center and Administration Building, at a total cost of $28 million, will ensure the university continues to be at the forefront of evidence-based health care.

Logan is fortunate to have many qualities that differentiate it from other colleges and universities: hands-on learning, tailored curriculum, worldclass faculty, a vibrant campus life and

Meet the Donors who are Making a Difference XAIVIER TIPLER, DC (’06) As a member of Logan’s Board of Trustees as well as the advancement committee, Dr. Xaivier Tipler sees the campus renovations as a strategic investment in Logan’s future. “The updated labs and new technology will give students the opportunity to learn every day in a high- tech environment that puts Logan at the forefront of health sciences education,” said Dr. Tipler. Through his practice and coaching business—Proficient Chiropractic and Evoke Chiropractic Coaching, respectively—and involvement in the American Black Chiropractic Association and Logan, Dr. Tipler always strives to pay it forward. “There were doctors who came before me who contributed to where I’m able to be right now,” he said. “It’s our responsibility as Logan alumni to ensure the university stays relevant and progresses the chiropractic profession. We’re passing the torch and providing opportunities for the future doctors to come.” LOIS WARD, DC (’63) Dr. Lois Ward and her husband, Gary F. Ward. DC (‘62), have been longtime supporters of Logan University. The couple practiced together for 43 years in Farmington, Missouri, and was part of the group that donated funds to purchase Logan’s current campus back in the 1970s. Now, Drs. Ward are supporting the Activator Lab in the Fuhr Science Center. “As I’ve heard stated by others many times: Somebody has to plant the trees that other people sit under and enjoy—we aren’t personally going to use the lab, but coming generations will,” said Dr. Lois Ward. “The ultimate recipient is the patient.” One of the first Activator Methods instructors, Dr. Lois Ward became interested in Activator because it told her where and when to adjust and, most importantly, when not to adjust. The rest, she said, is history. She went on to teach the fundamental class for 25 years and helped produce textbooks and Activator’s first online program. “It was a privilege to be part of the growth of Activator Methods and work with Dr. Fuhr for all those years,” she said. “Working with the Activator Technique made such a difference for us and for our patients.” JAN ROBERTS, DC (’79) Dr. Jan Roberts has lived a life of adventure. He spent time as an exchange student in Sweden and visited the Arctic Circle in college. After earning a bachelor’s degree in history, he skied professionally for three seasons and bicycled through Europe for seven months. Years later, after discovering chiropractic following a devastating injury that ended his professional ski career, he graduated from Logan, opened a successful practice in Farmington, Maine, and began traveling around the world teaching Activator Methods and providing sports performance care to the world’s best ski racers during the World Pro Ski Tour®. To this day, he uses Activator Methods to serve the world of skiing as team chiropractor at Carrabassett Valley Academy, a world-class ski and snowboard academy near his home in Maine. Having learned that the more he gives, the more he receives out of life, Dr. Roberts is now paying it forward by supporting the Activator Technique Lab in the Fuhr Science Center and encouraging fellow Logan graduates to do the same. “None of us are as smart as all of us, so let’s collaborate and make something better than any of us could dream,” Dr. Roberts said. “Somebody has to be the first chiropractor on the moon or Mars … They may go through this laboratory. This is the future.” LOGAN.EDU/GIVE



Dr. Cynthia Reynolds Scholarship Helps Students Pursue Chiropractic Education Cynthia Reynolds, DC (’78) did not have experience with chiropractic care before deciding to attend Logan University after completing her undergraduate degrees in zoology and chemistry. She came from a medical family—her father was a veterinarian, her mother was a nurse and her brother was a physician— and had set her sights on becoming a dentist. However, she had a few friends who were attending Logan to become chiropractors and had spoken highly of this career path, so she applied. “Chiropractic sounded fascinating to me, and as soon as I arrived at Logan, I knew it was a great fit,” she said. “I really enjoyed the education I received and the people I met at Logan.” Upon graduation, Dr. Reynolds returned to her hometown of Johnson City, Tennessee, and opened a practice. She then married her now husband of almost 40 years, who was a tenured professor at a medical school. They live on a 23-acre farm in nearby Jonesborough, Tennessee, where they have raised Trakehner horses, bred for sport. She also competed and trained extensively in dressage, a form of artistic horse riding where the horse and rider perform a series of coordinated movements during an exhibition or competition. Dr. Reynolds and her husband now raise eight horses but at one point cared for almost 15 at once. “I had a dual career with my practice and my farm, and I enjoyed both of them immensely,” she said. “Since my retirement, I have spent even more time with my horses and my husband—who is also enjoying his second career as a photographer, which he started when we got married.” Dr. Reynolds sold her practice in 2014 to a patientturned-chiropractor whom she inspired to attend Logan. “My practice was all about relationships and personal


“I believe this is a great way to give back to students who, like me, need some financial assistance to pursue their studies.” – Dr. Cynthia Reynolds contacts. My patients became my friends, and I enjoyed taking care of them.” Now she is helping to take care of the next generation of chiropractors. Dr. Reynolds recently established the Dr. Cynthia A. Reynolds Scholarship for Logan students who are talented and need financial assistance. The Scholarship will award $5,000 to one student per year who maintains a 3.0 GPA or higher and demonstrates financial need, to help with educational costs. “I believe this is a great way to give back to students who, like me, need some financial assistance to pursue their studies, as expenses can be high,” Dr. Reynolds said. “I want to help the next generation continue our tradition of high-quality patient care.”


Recovering Like a Pro: Using Rapid Reboot to Level Up Your Game For David Johnson, a triathlete and engineer, compression therapy has always been key to recovering during months of grueling training. After several years of research and development, he and his wife partnered with Bailey Jenkins, a former collegiate track and field athlete, to launch Rapid Reboot in 2016. The FDA-approved medical compression system boosts circulation, increases lymphatic function and relieves muscle tension by providing tailored sequential compression to various areas of the body. “We work closely with physical therapists and chiropractors to offer an effective tool for noninvasive pain management and rehab, not only for athletes but also anyone interested in health and wellness,” said Alyssa Banks, corporate partnership director at Rapid Reboot. Many professional athletes, Olympians and athletic teams have adopted Rapid Reboot as part of their training recovery regimens. Rapid Reboot and Logan University connected in 2021 through the USA Para Powerlifting (USAPP) team, which was using the system for competition and training recovery. With the same goal in mind, Rapid Reboot became a USAPP business and career partner. These partnerships are vital to the sport, and donations raised fund a range of USAPP needs, including training costs, gym fees, medical support and equipment. “Our athletes were able to use the Rapid Reboot system at our last international event, and the feedback was very positive—most athletes felt the customizable compression technology helped with their recovery,” said Melissa Engelson, DC, DHPE (’20), MS, CSCS, DABCSP, ICCSP, TSAC-F, USAPP Paralympic medical advisor. Rapid Reboot’s newest patented compression systems come with sleeves for hips and arms as well as boots for legs that work in conjunction with an app to tailor

the compression level to each person’s needs. It also has a portable and powerful REPLAY massage gun, which provides a deep tissue massage. “Logan’s approach to rehab and pain management and their support of athletes was a great fit for us,” said Alyssa.

Pre-Health Club Supports Students Around the Globe as they Pursue Diverse Health Careers Deciding to pursue a terminal degree can cause stress, anxiety and loneliness. A few Logan students experienced these emotions when applying for medical school. They founded the Pre-Health Club after realizing they could benefit from leaning on one another during this strenuous process. Logan’s first fully virtual organization, the Pre-Health Club was founded in the summer of 2021 to assist students interested in furthering their education after graduating. Emily Hoffman, founding member and current club president, is passionate about helping her fellow students near and far. “Online learning in such rigorous programs can get really lonely since you don’t get the same support from your classmates like you do when you’re on campus,” said Emily. “The Pre-Health Club helps bridge that gap by providing support and encouragement to our members, no matter their geographic location.” The club organizes events each month for members to get to know each other and enjoy the company of like-minded individuals. They also host speakers who advise on topics from admissions requirements and application tips to job shadowing and interview preparation. “We plan to host one or two speakers from the health care field each month to talk about their experiences,” said Emily. “We’re working to coordinate with dentists, medical doctors, chiropractors, veterinarians, physician’s assistants and others to talk about things like their school’s application process and finding a job after graduation.” These speakers provide helpful information based on their experiences, which prepares Pre-Health Club members for life after graduation. Students can also network with professionals in their desired fields, allowing Technique Labthem to make connections 26 SPRING 2022 • LOGAN UNIVERSITY

“Our goal with this club is to provide an outlet so no one ever feels alone in their pursuit of a path that can be really challenging.” – Emily Hoffman, founding member and current club president

that could help them later in their careers. “For me, I know a lot about the pre-med track, but nothing else,” Emily said. “If I were to change my career path, I wouldn’t even know where to begin. By witnessing speakers from different disciplines, it gives our members a solid foundation of information regarding all the paths they can take after graduating from Logan.” Michael Koesterer, MD, MPH, assistant professor and faculty advisor for the Pre-Health Club, knows the importance of preparation from his experience in medical school. “The admissions committee at any university is going to want to see that an

applicant truly did the research and knows what partaking in a demanding postgraduate degree program will entail,” said Dr. Koesterer. “A club like this looks great on an application because it reinforces that this student is well informed, well prepared and passionate about the program they applied for.” Being part of extracurricular clubs and organizations like the Pre-Health Club can enrich a student’s undergraduate experience. Aside from the educational benefits, students also have the chance to make meaningful, lifelong connections with one another. “Our goal with this club is to provide an outlet so no one ever feels alone in their pursuit of a path that can be really challenging,” Emily said. “I encourage everyone to join some sort of club because the skills you learn will stick with you for the rest of your life.”

Dear Alumni, Friends & Supporters: In the pages of this annual report, you’ll find a snapshot of life at Logan from September 2020 to August 2021, including the outstanding individuals who make our institution great, the partnerships and programs that advance student learning and much more. You’ll also hear from students about the impact of scholarships and find the fiscal year financial reports, which show that Logan maintains its strong financial position. We also celebrate your support. Whether it’s making a financial gift, referring new students to Logan or offering your time and talents as a preceptor doctor, you are crucial to the ongoing health and sustainability of Logan University. I’m proud to say that in 2021, we embarked on one of the most significant campus improvement projects in the history of the university: renovating the Fuhr Science Center and Administration Building. A generous lead gift from Dr. Arlan and Mrs. Judi Fuhr has enabled Logan to invest in the 33,426-square-foot renovation and 14,400-square-foot addition of the formerly named Science and Research Center, constructed in 1986. Logan will also renovate portions of the Administration Building, which was part of the original Maryknoll Seminary purchased in 1972. The university has since adapted these buildings to provide up-to-date instruction, but the facilities are dated and equipment is nearing the end of its useful life. Renovation and expansion are imperative to upholding Logan’s stellar reputation in chiropractic and health sciences education, and this project is a major investment in the institution’s commitment to experiential learning for our students. We hope you will join us for a groundbreaking ceremony this May; you can register and stay informed on the project’s progress at

Donor Spotlight: Lori L. Bents, DC Paying it Forward by Giving Back to Students Lori L. Bents, DC (’84) knows firsthand the impact scholarships can make on students’ lives. “During my time at Logan, I received a few small scholarships that made it possible for me to pursue my degree,” Dr. Bents said. “I started donating to Logan not long after my graduation because I wanted to give back and provide a helping hand to a student who needed it, just like someone did for me.” What started as recurring alumni association donations three decades ago has grown into so much more. Dr. Bents recalls how much her children loved coming to Logan to see “their” chairs in the Purser Center and their mother’s name on the ticket booth, along with “her” light in the courtyard.


Dr. Bents is now working with Logan’s Office of Institutional Advancement to create an endowed scholarship that will be awarded to students who are either from her home state of Wisconsin or who plan to move there after graduation. As an endowed fund, this scholarship will be maintained into perpetuity. “I’m grateful to Logan for giving me the ability to have an excellent life and help others in a variety of ways,” said Dr. Bents. “From hosting Logan students as preceptors at my practice to offering advice and now creating this scholarship, I want to honor Logan for the incredible education I had there and hope my donations will encourage others to pay it forward as well.” Dr. Bents found her way to Logan in an unconventional manner. She originally enrolled at the University of Wisconsin–River Falls to pursue a pre-pharmacy degree, but after speaking with the chiropractor located next door to a restaurant her parents owned, Dr. Bents changed her mind. “I was doing massage therapy on the side to help pay for my education, and the drug-free, surgery-free health care model of chiropractic resonated with my beliefs so much more than the track I was on at the time,” Dr. Bents said. “I made the switch and decided to attend Logan because of some incredible doctors of chiropractic I met along the way, like Dr. Gordon Toftness and Dr. Beatrice Hagen.” In addition to supporting Logan, Dr. Bents is passionate about giving back to her community of Marshfield, Wisconsin. She has served in multiple local service and health care groups as well as Kiwanis. Her practice, Bents Chiropractic Center, S.C., has become a staple of the community. “As a chiropractor, one of my main goals is to help and serve people,” Dr. Bents said. “Donating to Logan is just another way to do that.”

“I started donating to Logan not long after my graduation because I wanted to give back and provide a helping hand to a student who needed it, just like someone did for me.”

Student Scholarship: Amanda Gottman, DC Amanda Gottman, DC (’21), clinic director for ChiroPro in Columbia, Illinois, has seen the benefits of chiropractic care since she was a young child. Both her parents have been treated by chiropractors for as long as she can remember. “My mom was in a terrible car accident when I was 3, and chiropractic care is the only reason she can function normally,” Dr. Gottman said. “My dad has issues with the discs in his back but can still get around well thanks to his chiropractor.” This, paired with an incredible job shadowing experience, nudged Dr. Gottman away from optometry—the path she originally wanted to pursue—and toward chiropractic. “I fell in love with Logan as soon as I stepped on campus,” Dr. Gottman said. “I had such a great experience from day one, and I wanted to give that same welcoming feeling to other students.” Passionate about helping others, Dr. Gottman was the educational coordinator for her class all 10 trimesters. She also served as a student ambassador and Leopard Leader. When she reached her ninth trimester, Dr. Gottman was awarded the John R. Howell, DC Memorial Scholarship. “Receiving this scholarship was so meaningful to my family and I because Dr. Howell was actually the chiropractor who treated my mom after her car accident,” Dr. Gottman said. “It was an incredible experience, and I’m so thankful to the Howell family for their gift to Logan.” With the funds from her scholarship, Dr. Gottman purchased her own Activator adjustment tool. Owning an Activator as a student gave her more freedom while she completed her clinical and preceptorship rotations. She didn’t have to worry about whether an Activator would be available, so she could focus all her energy on treating her patients. “The scholarship opportunities Logan offers are phenomenal,” said Dr. Gottman. “Being a chiropractic student is challenging, and these scholarships provide a bit of financial relief so students can focus on what matters: their education.”

Student Scholarship: Clint Glenn Clint Glenn never intended to be a chiropractor. In fact, he earned an English degree from a small liberal arts college in Pennsylvania before pursuing social work. While working at an adoption agency, Clint often had to review the medical records of children he worked with. “I repeatedly noticed things I didn’t agree with in these kids’ records,” Clint said. “I always felt like I had a calling to serve people in a greater way, so I decided to change career paths to pursue a form of natural health care.” Chiropractic was the first field that came to Clint’s mind. He’d seen a chiropractor for most of his life and had a few friends who were chiropractors. “Every chiropractor I knew went to Logan, so without giving it a second thought, I applied,” said Clint. While he was ecstatic to be accepted to Logan, Clint experienced some self-doubt, as he had no science or health care background. “I kept wondering if I would even be able to pass an exam, let alone my boards,” Clint said. “But when I was awarded the Dr. Keith A. Berger Memorial Scholarship as an incoming trimester 1 student, it was such an honor and it made me feel confident that I made the right decision.” Clint applied for each scholarship that he was eligible for during his first year to help with academic and living expenses. During his first and second trimester, he was also awarded the Forever Chiropractic, Forever Logan Scholarship. “Both of these scholarships meant so much to me because they helped relieve some of the mental stress that comes with paying for a doctoral degree,” said Clint. Thanks to his scholarships, Clint didn’t have to worry about how he was going to pay for things like textbooks, board exam preparation courses and materials, and board exam fees. “I’m so grateful to have received these scholarships, and I’m grateful to everyone who donates to fund them,” Clint said. “My experience at Logan has been nothing short of amazing, and I can’t wait to see where my path takes me in continuing to serve others after graduation.”
