College Welcomes New, Returning Trustees Karlos Boghosian, D.C., Judy Campanale, D.C., A.C.P., Linda C. Giuliano, M.B.A., and Ed Marram, Ph.D., have been appointed to the Sherman College of Chiropractic Board of Trustees, and Joe Borio, D.C., has rejoined the board. The Board of Trustees at Sherman College of Chiropractic is a visionary group of professionals dedicated to carrying out the college’s mission, goals and objectives to educate doctors of chiropractic, conduct relevant research, and serve humanity with high quality health care. Members serve four-year terms. Campanale was appointed to her first term to the Sherman College Board of Trustees, effective October 2016. A 1992 graduate of Pennsylvania College of Straight Chiropractic, she is owner of Strauss Chiropractic Center in Levittown, PA, and travels throughout the country speaking on various topics and platforms. She has served as president of the Federation of Straight Chiropractors and Organizations (now the International Federation of Chiropractors and Organizations) and continues to serve on its board. “Sherman College has served as the philosophical anchor for the chiropractic profession for decades,” Campanale said. “It is an honor to serve and assist the college in this effort.” Marram was appointed to a second term as trustee, effective October 2016. Marram has served as an important member of

Sherman’s Board of Trustees and is eager to continue to offer his professional and academic experiences to the college as a trustee. He currently serves as director of the Entrepreneurial Center at Babson College in Wellesley, MA. “Chiropractic care has been an important part of my physical wellbeing for many years,” Marram said of the importance of the profession. Boghosian was appointed to his first term to the Sherman College Board of Trustees, effective February 2017. He is the founder and CEO of SoVita Chiropractic Centers, a mission-driven company that has grown into one of the most trusted chiropractic organizations in the Northeast, with five locations throughout Connecticut. He is dedicated to providing fellow chiropractors superior support to provide high-quality chiropractic care in a system-based environment. Boghosian has not only cared for tens of thousands of patients in his high-volume chiropractic center, but has also revitalized many under-performing clinics. Fluent in four languages, he is an extraordinary lecturer and thought leader in the chiropractic industry, having been a guest speaker on numerous platforms across the country. He was nominated for Chiropractor of the Year in Connecticut in 2014 and was appointed by Governor Dan Malloy to the Connecticut Chiropractic Board of Examiners in 2015. Boghosian is also a member of the board of trustees for the Boys and Girls Club of Hartford. (continued on page 7)


Board of Trustees: Updates and Insights

Sherman College Earns 2017 Military Friendly® Schools Designation Sherman College of Chiropractic has earned the 2017 Military Friendly® Schools designation by Victory Media. First published in 2009, Military Friendly® Schools is the most comprehensive, powerful resource for veterans today. Each year, the list of Military Friendly® Schools is provided to service members and their families, helping them select the best college, university, or trade school to receive the education and training needed to pursue a civilian career. This is Sherman College’s fourth consecutive year receiving the Military Friendly® designation. A U.S. Navy veteran, Sherman College President Dr. Edwin Cordero said the Military Friendly® Schools designation has special meaning to him. “Sherman College has a tremendous opportunity to serve and honor our military service members who give so much to our country,” Dr. Cordero said. “We are eager to reach more military members and share with them a health care career that embraces their commitment to serving others. I think it is especially fitting, since Sherman College of Chiropractic holds service to others as a major component of its mission.” For more information, visit www. sherman.edu/militaryfriendly.

We Are Different by Peter Kevorkian, D.C. Chair of the Board of Trustees I remember my first day in chiropractic college. Excited to be starting a journey into a profession I knew little about, I sat in a room with more than 150 other students as the college went through the process of collating us into the academic system. Staff members from admissions, the registrar, financial aid and others came to explain the logistics and protocols of the college. Student representatives from the major clubs also gave short presentations attempting to entice us to participate in their groups. Most memorable on that day, for me, was the presentation of the philosophy and communications club. This 15-minute patient education lecture changed my life. The person presented an old chart lecture developed by Reggie Gold, “Attitudes that Keep You from Becoming Healthy.” I had never heard the chiropractic story as a whole package. After that talk, I made a commitment to myself to learn how to do that talk. I spent the next number of months developing the words, getting over my fears, and dealing with my introverted nature to learn how to do a patient lecture. I came to believe that if people could know what I know, they would do what I do. I knew that children should

be checked and adjusted from birth, that chiropractic is about creating wellbeing and not treating disease, that the intelligence of the life is infinite and the educated mind is finite, and most importantly that the body is always better off with good nerve supply than bad nerve supply. Although I got quite good at talking TIC and answering questions in an effective and congruent manner, I knew that the true test of my competency would be when I was in my own practice. Although there are many pieces to creating and sustaining a successful chiropractic practice, I firmly believe the cornerstone of a subluxation-centered, family practice focused on building well-being is effective patient education. Our articulation must be congruent with our practice objectives and philosophical tenets. I also know that the educational process needs to happen without judgment and at an appropriate gradient. When a person enters our practice, they often do so because they want relief or resolve from some problem or disorder of the body. As chiropractors, we attempt to move the person from a mindset of “get rid of my problem or medical condition” to “help me have a healthier, better (continued on page 33)

Although there are many pieces to creating and sustaining a successful chiropractic practice, I firmly believe the cornerstone of a subluxation-centered, family practice focused on building well-being is effective patient education. SHERMAN

In Memory of Helen Brown, D.C.H.

In Memory of Helen McPike Brown, D.C.H. It is with sadness that Sherman College shares the news of the passing of Helen McPike Brown on August 19, 2016. Her husband of more than 70 years, Gordon Brown, D.C., was near her side at the time, in their home on the Sherman College campus in Spartanburg, SC. “Helen Brown was a passionate supporter of chiropractic throughout her life,” said Sherman College President Edwin Cordero, D.C. “She gave to chiropractic and to Sherman College unselfishly, and she had a true love for the profession. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family; she will be dearly missed.” Though not a chiropractor herself, Mrs. Brown had a rare appreciation of chiropractic philosophy and a unique commitment to sharing chiropractic with others. Originally from Davenport, IA, she was a talented artist who donated many of her works to the college both to help decorate the campus and as assets the college can use to raise funds. She was known for her interest in providing chiropractic art to doctors of chiropractic for their homes and offices. Helen was past president of the Women’s Auxiliary of the International Chiropractors Association (WAICA); her father (Dr. Ray McPike, an enthusiastic early supporter of Sherman College), her husband, and one of her two sons have all been chiropractors. Helen and her husband, Gordon, who were married in 1944, donated their home in Sedona, AZ, to Sherman College in 1999; (continued on page 7) PAGE 4

Campus News: Board of Trustees

New, Returning Trustees (continued from page 2) Giuliano, a chiropractic patient who is passionate about the profession, was appointed to her first term to the Sherman College Board of Trustees, effective February 2017. She holds an M.B.A. in management from the Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University, and works as a senior vice president and chief administrative officer for the Equities group, and head of responsible investment for Alliance Bernstein (AB), a global investment firm in New York City. She chairs the Proxy and Governance Committee and the Responsible Investment Committee. Giuliano joined the firm in 1988 as an associate portfolio manager in Value Equities, and has held several other positions within Equities over the years. In the late 1990s, she created and managed the firm’s Internal Consulting Department before transitioning to the role of chief operating officer for Alternative Investments in 2006. Sherman College Board of Trustees Chair Peter Kevorkian, D.C., looks forward to these individuals’ contributions to the board. “Dr. Campanale will be a tremendous asset to the Sherman Board of Trustees,” he said. He also expressed his appreciation for Marram’s commitment to continued service. “Dr. Marram’s input and perspective to the Sherman board has been invaluable,” he said. “We are excited to continue to benefit from his leadership in this time of Sherman expansion and growth.” Kevorkian is also excited to welcome Boghosian and Giuliano to the board.

“Dr. Boghosian is extremely successful at building systems and inspiring success in his clinics, and he is dedicated to serving our profession in multiple ways, including the board of registration in Connecticut,” he said. “Linda Giuliano has been a chiropractic patient since childhood and has a desire to serve our profession with her unique skill and passion; her experience with a major investment firm will surely be an asset to the board as well.” In addition to these individuals, Joe Borio, D.C., re-engaged with the board in February. Borio holds bachelor’s degrees in biology and chemistry from Brockport State University in Brockport, NY, as well as B.S. and D.C. degrees from National College of Chiropractic in Lombard, IL. He is owner and president of Borio Chiropractic Health Center in Cicero, NY, and president and CEO of Chiropassion Consulting LLC. Borio lectures and writes for organizations in his community on chiropractic health topics, is an international author on chiropractic health care, has published videos on YouTube regarding chiropractic care, and works as an international speaker, mentor and coach. He serves on the board of directors of the International Federation of Chiropractors and Organizations and is a member of the Chiropractic Knights of the Round Table. “The Board is excited to welcome Dr. Borio,” Kevorkian said. “He has been a strong supporter of Sherman College, and aside from his successful practice in New York, he consults for chiropractors around the world to help them build and develop subluxation centered thriving practices.”

Helen McPike Brown, D.C.H. (continued from page 4) funds from the donation were used to construct the Brown House and Museum on campus. The structure serves as an on-campus residence for the couple, and the lower level houses a museum with the college’s historical chiropractic holdings. The Browns’ donation is the largest gift in kind in the history of the college. The couple moved into the Brown House and Museum in October 2000. At the time, Helen shared their excitement about joining the Sherman College family. “Our primary objective in making this donation was not only to give the college the bulk of our estate, but also to be around people who share our philosophy,” she explained at the time. “We’ve lived nothing but the chiropractic philosophy our entire lives.” Gordon Brown is a 1942 graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic; he practiced in Louisville, KY, for two years and in Logansport, IN, for 19 years and was instrumental in getting the laws changed in Indiana to allow chiropractors to practice. Both Gordon and Helen have supported and contributed generously to Sherman College in many ways over the years. In 1993, they became members of the Board of Regents, and in 1997, they made a generous estate commitment to the Sherman College Endowment Trust. Sherman College presented the couple with honorary Doctor of Chiropractic Humanities degrees in 2001, and they received the prestigious Thom and Betty Gelardi Service Award in 2013.

Showcase Sherman: A Student’s Perspective by Showcase Sherman Weekend attendee and second-quarter student Tyler Speed

the same quarter that I was going to be starting.

I attended my first Showcase Sherman at the end of January 2016 then attended again at the end of July. I really liked how we kept busy during the entire day, and I appreciated all of the information that was provided. While at Showcase you are kept very active with hands-on activities like a palpation session and the team building. The activities that go on throughout the Showcase give you a great idea on what Sherman’s philosophy of chiropractic is, and I immediately knew this was the place for me.

After the first visit and deciding that Sherman was the school for me, I wanted to show my family members why I had chosen to attend Sherman. I was also wanting to find a place to live and sign a lease that weekend and meet other prospective students that would be coming into school at the same time as I was.

The loving atmosphere of the campus, the staff and the student ambassadors made an immediate impact on me and set the tone for how the rest of the weekend would go. I had the pleasure of getting to know some of the student ambassadors very well. Being able to meet and eat lunch with Dr. Cordero and Dr. Cohen was an amazing experience. On the second visit it was great to be able to meet a large group of students who planned to attend Sherman

I think other students should attend Showcase Sherman Weekend because you will meet amazing people, learn what the school is about, and get to know professors before you even attend. A prospective student will also see the passion that everyone here at Sherman truly loves chiropractic and are extremely welcoming, loving and helpful. The weekend also gives you a good feel for what the surrounding area has to offer. I would love to help with Showcase Sherman Weekend and help other prospective students find out if Sherman is the place for them like everyone did for me when I came to Showcase Weekend.

Student Leader Spotlight: Tim Hartman by ROAR student leader and March graduate Tim Hartman, D.C., ’17 Sherman has everything to offer if one wants to have joy and be successful. As an undergrad student at the University of North Carolina Charlotte, I was privileged to hear a Sherman College student speak about the profession and a potential career as a chiropractor. After the talk I was able to connect with thenstudent (and ROAR student leader) Eric Goans, and he has been one of my closest mentors throughout school ever since that day he came and spoke. I actually went back to the same talk three times as a student at UNCC when Sherman College visited there. What really separated Sherman College from the others is that they knew my face and, more importantly, were able to remember my name before I ever gave a dollar to the school. This is the best foreshadowing I can give about how my experience was as a student here. Everyone is a huge family, and there never is any competition when it comes to grades or academics. One of the worst things about schools (graduate or undergrad) is it seems everything is a competition, which can really depreciate relationships. Students at Sherman are always here to help each other, whether it’s going over notes for tests, preparing for technique classes, or even strengthening our communication to the public

about chiropractic while practicing health talks. This makes learning a much less stressful environment. My experience as a student was a large investment, but what I learned not only as a chiropractor but as a man was priceless. I learned how to deal with stressful situations, how to understand and care for the people you get to serve and, most importantly, I was blessed with the opportunity to meet my future wife. All these things are fundamental building blocks, not for just a successful career, but that make for a successful life. I value my Sherman College education so much, and although anyone that is interested in choosing chiropractic as a career is a win in my eyes, I know undoubtedly that Sherman College is the place that will put you in the winners’ circle.

“Everyone should have the opportunity to live life to the fullest. The best way I know to change the world (for the better) is to get passionate and skilled chiropractors adjusting more people. That’s why I refer ALL prospective students to Sherman College of Chiropractic. The education provided there is top tier. Thank you Sherman College for helping people live their best for generations to come!” – Ed Gigliotti, D.C. “I only recommend a few chiropractic schools throughout the world and even fewer here in America. Though philosophy is an imperative aspect of chiropractic and foundational to the success of a chiropractor, many schools have strayed away from our true chiropractic roots in favor of pushing drugs. Sherman is one of the few schools I recommend and the one I would personally attend. They are unwavering in their commitment to chiropractic philosophy, the art of the adjustment, and how to successfully blend it all with scientifically informed research. They not only prepare their students to have accomplished careers in chiropractic, they are putting them ahead of their peers who attend medically-centered colleges.” – Billy DeMoss, D.C.

Alumni and VIP Visits: Sherman on the Road

Pride Award Goes to Carature Lindsay Carature of Connecticut is the winner of the inaugural Pride Award Scholarship. The money was raised last year in a Text2Give challenge between alumni and students held on Sherman Pride Day (see page 30). The Pride award is a $500 tuition credit and was awarded for this winter quarter. In her winning essay, Carature said she has shown her Sherman Pride by participating in Showcase Sherman Weekend (see page 8) as a student panelist, working in the Alumni Relations office and wearing Sherman gear when she travels. “I want people to know that I’m grateful to be attending Sherman,” she explained. “I’m proud to be part of a profession that facilitates the body’s own ability to heal. I get excited when someone asks me a question in relation to a Sherman shirt. It’s a great conversation starter!”

Sherman Leaders Visit Friends, Alumni, Trustees President Edwin Cordero, D.C., had a busy round of travel recently, visiting college friends and trustees in four states in three days. Accompanied by Senior Director of Institutional Advancement Roger Sullivan, Cordero visited on day one in Florida with Irene Gold, D.C., Jerry Tishman, D.C., ’76, of Sherman’s pioneer class, and Dexter DiMarco, D.C., ’85. Gold told stories of the early days at Sherman and shared the launch of some traditions that continue even today. Day two began in Boston with Trustee Ed Marram, Ph.D., at Babson College, and ended in Nashua, NH, over dinner with former Trustee Ron Lanzara, Sr.,

D.C., and Sherman sweethearts Ron Lanzara, Jr., D.C., ’94, and Cindy Lanzara, D.C., ’94. Dr. Ron Sr. told of the licensure challenges of his day, and of getting elected to the New Hampshire legislature to be on the front line of that fight; Drs. Ron Jr. and Cindy shared about their rapid response to Ground Zero right after 9/11, about living atop a barge on the Hudson, providing chiropractic care to search and rescue teams. Day three was all about New Jersey, as the Sherman travelers visited in Paramus with Joseph Donofrio, Sr., D.C., who shared stories from his 20 years of Sherman Board service (12 as chairman), then traveled northward to Branchville to visit Sherman Trustee Kim Stetzel, D.C., and Greg Stetzel, D.C., ’83, to discuss Sherman’s expansion plans.

She said attending Showcase Sherman solidified her decision to enroll at the college. “I immediately said yes,” she said of the opportunity to serve on the student panel. “I wanted to pay forward the help and advice I received when I attended almost two years ago. That event led me to my final decision that I would earn my D.C. degree at Sherman.” She also shared how her work in the alumni office inspires her. “I love my work-study job because I connect with alumni and follow their success,” she said. “Making these connections only strengthens my passion for this profession. It comforts me to know that many people who have walked this path before me are pursuing their goals. It reassures me that I’ll be nothing but successful.”

Leading the Profession: iSherman Initiative

Miss America Organization, Sherman College Partner to Offer Potential of $5.8 Million in Scholarship Funds Sherman College has opened the door to the chiropractic profession for young women by donating a full chiropractic scholarship available to all 52 contestants who will compete in the 2017 Miss America Competition in Atlantic City. The scholarship award consists of a full, in-kind, tuition waiver, a total value of more than $111,000 per student. If utilized by all 52 national contestants, the total scholarship offering from Sherman College would equal $5.8 million. “We are eager to reach more young leaders and share with them a health care career that embraces their commitment to serving others,” said Sherman College President Edwin Cordero, D.C., of the college’s partnership with the Miss America Organization. “I think it is especially fitting to join forces with an organization which shares our focus on service and our desire to make a positive global impact.”

by Director of Teaching & Learning Billie Harrington, Ph.D.

iSherman Program Helps Students Learn Course Material for D.C. Program The iSherman Initiative represents a plan of carefully developed strategies to transform our doctor of chiropractic program curriculum through the interweaving of various educational technologies. The first group of approximately 50 students received their campus-issued iPad Air IIs during the summer quarter of 2016.

The scholarship introduction was spearheaded by former Miss New Hampshire, Stephanie Mills, D.C., who attended chiropractic school herself through a scholarship she was awarded while competing at Miss America.

This pilot group included all students enrolled in fourth-quarter courses. The fall 2016 quarter device deployment included the next group of students enrolled in fourth-quarter courses, as well as those enrolled in ninth-quarter courses. The devices will remain the property of Sherman College until the students graduate from the program. At graduation, the devices will become the property of the graduates.

“We are incredibly grateful to Sherman College of Chiropractic for their generous support of women’s education,” said Josh Randle, MAO’s Chief Operating Officer. “In a time where student debt plagues our country, this scholarship opportunity will enable future state titleholders like Dr. Mills to pursue a quality education and advance their careers in the chiropractic field.”

A student iPad usage survey was completed by the students in the initial summer quarter deployment and the overwhelming response was that the use of the iPad was beneficial to their learning the course material. We believe we can attribute these favorable results to the ongoing training of our faculty in the use of iPads and their work to revise their course curricula.

Student Julie Wilkinson receives her iPad.

Faculty members are assigned development hours during the quarter prior to a deployment linked to their particular course. This gives them time to evaluate the course and develop a plan to revise the curriculum incorporating various forms of technology. For example, many faculty members have created iBooks from their course notes. The iBooks are comprised of interactive elements such as video lectures and review quizzes to enhance the student engagement with the course material. To date, faculty have completed more than 20 iBook projects, and the process will continue until all traditional course notes are transformed to iBooks. The overall consensus shows that students are very pleased with the iBooks and eagerly await the production of more for their other courses. With a current deployment of more than 125 iPads to our students, our goal is that by January 2018, each student on campus will have a college-issued iPad for use in their courses.


Leading the Profession: Evidence-Informed Practice

Evidence-Informed Practice and Curriculum: What it is and What it Means to You by Director of Evidence-Informed Curriculum and Practice Christopher Kent, D.C., J.D. It is difficult to attend a chiropractic meeting without encountering some discussion of evidence-based practice. The concept is simple and as old as the healing arts. Sackett defines evidence-based practice as “the conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of the current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients. ... [It] is not restricted to randomized trials and meta-analyses. It involves tracking down the best external evidence with which to answer our clinical questions.”1 Evidence-based practice is giving way to evidence-informed practice. An additional dimension has been added to the equation – patient preferences. As Umscheid noted, “patient preferences are critically important to clinical decision making and patient care.”2 What does this mean to you as a part of the Sherman College family? “The mission of Sherman College of Chiropractic is to educate and prepare students to become doctors of chiropractic. This mission is based upon

the college’s core values and is achieved through activities in the areas of education, research and service:

Pioneer Moments to be Captured on Video at Lyceum

Education

Details are still forming, but when Brian Pulver, D.C., ’76, class president of the very first graduating class (and recipient of the very first Sherman diploma) visited campus recently, the idea emerged for building an oral history of those early Sherman days as part of this year’s Legacy Alumni Reunion. Legacy alumni are those having reached their 40th anniversary of graduation.

Students are taught and learn from the most current knowledge and understanding of the philosophy of chiropractic, in the basic and clinical sciences, the research and science of vertebral subluxation and in the clinical practice of chiropractic so they may perform the professional obligations of a primary health care provider with competency, compassion and integrity.

Research Faculty members engage in research and scholarly activities that contribute to the body of pedagogical and clinical knowledge which advance chiropractic education and the chiropractic profession.”3 Sherman College will continue to be the leader in the research and science of vertebral subluxation and in the clinical practice of chiropractic. Stay tuned. An exciting future awaits!

Campus News: Pulvers Build Family Legacy

Pulver Legacy Continues Brian Pulver, D.C., ’76, may have been too caught up in his 40th anniversary reunion festivities while at Lyceum last year to give more than a passing thought to the talk on campus of renovating the Chiropractic Health Center. But after he returned home, the wheels started turning and he decided he wanted to leave a legacy at his alma mater. By the end of summer he had decided to donate enough to name a room in the Health Center renovation so that the Pulver name would be amongst those gracing the halls of Sherman College. In a note accompanying the first donation towards his family’s commitment Pulver said, “We are excited to be a part of this project. I hope to have a grandchild enrolled soon.”

Brian Pulver, D.C.,’ 76 (right) and his son Evan Pulver, D.C., (left) were on campus in January, visiting with President Dr. Edwin Cordero and guest lecturing in a couple of classes. They also presented a gift to the college, completing a commitment to name the Pulver Family Room in the Chiropractic Health Center on campus.

The odds are in his favor as three of his sons are chiropractors: Josh from the class of 2004, Levi from 2005, and Evan who earned his D.C. degree from another college close to where he was living in Texas at the time.

Pulver and his son Evan visited the campus in late January to speak to a couple of classes of students to share their experiences in establishing new practices. Pulver has a membership practice in Elk Rapids, MI, which he started 3 years ago after a brief retirement. Evan graduated in 2013 and opened a cash practice in The Woodlands, TX, not far from Houston.

Among his children, there are 10 grandchildren, the oldest at 8 years of age. Josh has three children, Levi and Evan each have one, his son Nick has three, and his step daughter Ann has two.

Each doctor in the family has a unique practice style, and they shared the pros and cons with senior students starting to make decisions about the practices they will create after graduation.

While on campus, the two delivered the final donations for the Pulver Family Adjusting Room in the Sherman College Chiropractic Health Center. Pulver has the distinction of being the first person to receive a degree from Sherman College by virtue of serving as class president for the pioneer class of September 1976. As is tradition at the college, the class president receives his/her diploma and then calls forth classmates in alphabetical order to be awarded their degrees.

Free Sherman Teleconferences Feature Elite Speakers As a leadership resource for students, alumni and chiropractors in the field, Sherman College’s weekly “Sherman Connect” teleconference program brings elite guest speakers to anyone with telephone access. Featured speakers present a free, hour-long teleseminar, sharing some aspect of the philosophy, science and art of chiropractic and its successful application in practice. “These calls give us a great opportunity to bring our students, alumni and other field chiropractors together and provide a valuable resource for our fellow visionaries,” says Sherman President Edwin Cordero, D.C. A schedule of speakers for the Monday evening calls is available at www.sherman.edu/connect. Listeners may join the call live or listen to select archived files on the college web site.

Employees, Interns Help Make the Holidays Merry

While a knife-edge chop and a “Wooo!” from Ric Flair might send some folks running in the opposite direction, two Sherman College D.C.s put themselves right in the middle of the action in September when Big Time Wrestling passed through Spartanburg. Vice President for Academic Affairs Joseph Donofrio, D.C., A.C.P., and Instructor of Clinical Sciences Rick Brescia, D.C., A.C.P., D.Ph.CS, provided care for the show members at Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium. Big Time Wrestling features Ric Flair, The Hardy Boyz, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, Cody Rhodes, Sabu, The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, Magnum T.A., The Nasty Boys, Gangrel, Trevor Lee, BTW Champion Flex Armstrong, and many more.

Sherman College participated in the United Way of the Piedmont’s Fall volunteer project – Overflow: Thanksgiving. This project makes it possible for community partners to feed hundreds of families each Thanksgiving. Sherman College employees filled 23 boxes and also provided extra goodies for these families.

Sherman Hosts Chamber’s Business After Hours Program

The Chiropractic Health Center was thrilled to welcome 100 of its littlest neighbors from Hendrix Elementary (about a mile away from the college) last fall. Eight interns volunteered to introduce these first graders to chiropractic, the nervous system and health during a field trip about “community helpers.”

Screenings, Health Talks and HC Patient Appreciation Interns have been active in the community, including spinal screenings at festivals and events, schools, business expo programs and more, as well as a resurgence of weekly health talks held at the college’s Chiropractic Health Center.

Contributing to the community

100 First Graders Visit Chiropractic Health Center

And instead of giving gifts to each other this past holiday season, many interns in the Health Center chose to give to community groups. Case Doctor Sarah Hock, D.C., ’08, had interns donate diapers and wipes to families helped by the nonprofit organization BirthMatters, where Hock serves on the board. Case Doctor Sarah Stephens, D.C., ’03, had interns donate to Toys for Tots, filling a box and making many children happy this holiday.

First-graders at the Health Center

Spartanburg Chamber members and local alumni convened at Sherman last fall as the college hosted a Business After Hours program. College café operators The Farmer’s Table served refreshments, door prizes were awarded, and student interns hosted a spinal screening. The event was designed to welcome Chamber members to campus and to celebrate our positive impact in the community.

At its employee holiday party, Sherman College helped local children and families in need by partnering with the Upstate Family Resource Center to support the Christmas for Kids Toy Drive and with Safe Homes / Rape Crisis Coalition to support the Christmas Gift Store. Employees assisted by contributing toys, gift cards, coats, household supplies and monetary donations.

Clinic Renovations and Patient Care In recent months, extensive efforts of renovations and enhancements in the Sherman College Chiropractic Health Center have led to much improved facilities and functionality.

Under the direction of Dean of Clinic Operations and Outreach Kristy Shepherd, M.A., the college has modernized and improved the reception area and patient adjusting and consultation rooms in the Health Center.

by Dean of Clinical Sciences Armand Rossi, D.C.

The facility has expanded to 28 adjustment rooms and 8 consultation rooms. The hallways are freshly painted, and new artwork and posters placed throughout the rooms and reception area brighten and update the space. New furniture has given the reception area a contemporary and fresh appearance. Updates like these can be very conducive to outpatient care in quantity and quality. The newer look leads interns to be more prideful in their school, which in turn sparks enthusiasm for inviting new prospective patients into the facility. According to recent research, newness and cleanliness can also lead to a perspective of improved safety and a higher quality skill set.

PAGE 20

SHERMAN

All of the above ties into the competency-based clinic model the college is developing. As Case Doctor and Chair of the Clinical Curriculum Matt Hudson, D.C., ’06, explains, “This competency model better prepares the interns for the real world beyond the school environment.” Interns will still be required to meet a certain amount of quantitative requirements, but increased emphasis will be placed on quality of care. The inclusion of E-Medley software at the Chiropractic Health Center allows for digitizing forms and assessments, which will, in turn, increase the ease of higher volume in the Health Center as well as developing hallway practices focused on better and more efficient care. The increase in Health Center staffing also permits smaller doctor-to-intern ratios, which should increase the likelihood of improved patient care. It is a bright future for the Sherman College Chiropractic Health Center.

Dreams

Coming True A message from Sherman College President Edwin Cordero, D.C. Sherman College of Chiropractic has arrived at a key moment in its history: we are poised to fulfill the vision shared when I first joined the college as president: to make Sherman the undisputed leader in chiropractic education. We are taking on the challenge of our time – to demonstrate the unique health-promoting qualities of chiropractic care with greater numbers of highly qualified graduates – and we are doing it with gusto. At an institutional level, Sherman College has never been stronger. We are proud of our distinguished teaching faculty, admired and continuously improving curriculum, dramatic enrollment growth, strong financial footing, and energetic Board of Trustees and executive leadership team, all pointing in the same direction – upward, onward.

So... What’s Next? Our next step is to match our vision and our passion with our physical resources – with facilities of the highest quality and with capacity in which to grow. Sherman College’s mission remains simple: to educate and prepare students to become doctors of chiropractic. And judging by our unprecedented growth over the past four years, this mission resonates with and has inspired the chiropractic community and the world. The college has doubled its enrollment, and we anticipate even more growth, potentially doubling again over the next decade. Seeing this potential for further growth and impact, the Sherman College Board of Trustees authorized our administrative team to develop strategic plans for the college, including a Master Plan for the college’s 80-acre campus in beautiful Spartanburg County, SC.

We have been working with the planning and program management firm Brailsford & Dunlavey (B&D) for the past year. The firm, with offices in Atlanta, Charlotte, New York and beyond, is guiding the college’s Campus Master Plan process. What you see in the featured concept drawing is the transformation of overcrowded but highly functional buildings into a destination campus, a place where students want to study; the gateway to an honorable and principled profession. You also, no doubt, see the addition of a new building that will become the heart of campus and the center of our focus on student success. These are the broad strokes of our Campus Master Plan; the basic elements include the following: 

Renovations to the Olsen Building [A] to house executive leadership offices, freeing up space in the Scallon Building; this renovation will be complete by Lyceum 2017 – come and see!

Extensive structural changes to the Scallon Building [B] to create a greater number of top-quality classroom spaces and a first-class teaching and learning facility; begins summer 2017  The creation of an entirely new Student Life Center [C] and campus arrival point, “crowning” the campus; begins later in 2017  Further improvements to the Chiropractic Health Center [D] to enhance patient care and research facilities, including a necessary elevator  A closure of the current campus driveway entrances so that those previously used areas along Springfield Road can become lovely open space and a western vista  A new campus entrance to bring visitors from a lower southeast approach that will transform their arrival view, approaching the high ground of the Student Life Center [C] and nearby Scallon and Health Center structures  An enhanced campus plaza and connectors to create pedestrian spaces, covered walkways and outdoor features 

The Time is Now The $16.3 million project will be completed by the end of 2018. We are working with Lord Aeck Sargent of Atlanta, a renowned architectural firm with deep experience in educational institutions, and Harper Corporation, a highly respected construction management firm. These companies are partnering to produce the most cost-efficient plans possible, working closely with our campus to ensure the process and results are the very best possible.

When We Succeed, You Succeed It is a most exciting and inspiring time in the history of Sherman College of Chiropractic. We are standing at the edge of greatness, and I cannot wait to see the college’s understated but beautiful campus fully represent the excellence we continually strive for and the vision we share.

Henry David Thoreau once said, “If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.” It’s time to put the bricks and mortar behind the vision and the heart of our campus, our Sherman College. I look forward to building with you and sharing our successes.

Rites of Passage by Beverly Knight

Life is filled with passages. Those passages are made more meaningful when traditions mark them. By definition, traditions develop over time as they take root in a culture. Since Sherman College was founded in 1973, traditions have grown up around the important moments when students move forward toward their ultimate goal of a life in chiropractic. From the first time they set foot on campus until the day they graduate and go out into the world to practice what they’ve learned, these traditions remind them that they are taking a series of significant steps that will ensure their future success.

Showcase Sherman Weekend Showcase Sherman Weekend, an event that occurs four times each year, introduces prospective students to Sherman College and allows them to participate in one of the college’s most important traditions. The weekend involves a great deal of advance planning by Admission Event Coordinator Emily Wood, and the active participation of Sherman’s student Ambassadors who put in hours to ensure that prospective students become familiar not only with Sherman’s campus and programs but also with the Upstate area that will be their home once they enroll. Each weekend event accommodates up to 75 prospective students, with the

number swelling to approximately 115 including spouses, parents, and children. Though not inherently “small,” thanks to the assistance of Ambassadors and enrollment and recruiting staff, this event still provides an opportunity for everyone to enjoy personal attention. The Showcase Sherman Weekend debuted in July of 2014 with 25 prospective students. Wood remembers that fledgling event that grew into the current tradition. “It has really taken off more than we ever expected. We quickly realized that we have something here, and we have worked to take the experience to the next level.” In the beginning, some speakers came from off campus. The decision was made that it would be more personal if Sherman faculty, students and staff, along with occasional graduates, were utilized for


presentations and activities. Wood, who also oversees the Ambassador program, is proud of the fact that the current president of the Ambassadors, Letitia Clay, attended the event in January 2015 and completed the circle by welcoming prospective students to campus this year. Creating an effective experience involves a lot of work. The coordinator plans the event from start to finish, creating registration procedures, communicating with prospective students, and making flight, hotel and catering arrangements – all before ensuring that things run smoothly once participants arrive on campus on Thursday evening. Since most attendees are from out of town, they check into the host hotel where they will spend three nights. Sherman partners with Climb Upstate

to provide a session on leadership and bonding, and participants are shown housing possibilities and travel to downtown Spartanburg for lunch and free time to roam. In January of this year, for the first time, the group went to the Falls Park area of Greenville. And finally, there is a patient-doctor experience in which prospective students lie down on an adjusting table and learn more about the spine, an experience that many are having for the first time. Tyler Speed attended his first Showcase Sherman Weekend in January 2016 and returned for another in July (see page 9 for more about his visit). “I really liked how we kept busy during the entire day and all of the information that was provided. The activities that go on throughout the Showcase give you a great idea of what Sherman’s philosophy of chiropractic

is, and I immediately knew this was the place for me,” Tyler said of meeting and getting to know other students who would be coming into school with him. “The loving atmosphere of the campus, the staff, and the student Ambassadors made an immediate impact on me.” After that first visit, Speed knew he wanted to show family members why he had made his decision. He sees the weekend as a chance to meet people, learn what the college is about and get to know the professors. “A prospective student will also see the passion and that everyone here at Sherman truly loves chiropractic and is extremely welcoming, loving and helpful.” Wood’s favorite part of the weekend is the wrap-up session when prospective students spend time with

complete, we were really able to capitalize on all the group members’ strengths to achieve our common goal quickly.” That recognition of all of the team members’ strengths was the most beneficial part of the experience for him because it highlighted the importance of taking a step back and being a good listener as a leader. The process of implementing the idea of the ropes challenge took a year and a half. After every faculty member, the Health Center staff, and many of the administrators and staff had been trained and gone through the challenge, the first group of students and staff completed the experience in October 2009.

everyone from the Ambassadors to the college’s President, Edwin Cordero, D.C. “They have an opportunity to share stories, give testimonies. This really ends the weekend on a high note.” The success of the program is clear. Participants come from South Carolina and other states as well as from foreign countries. At least one-third of the students who attend a Showcase Sherman Weekend go on to enroll in the program. “It’s a great feeling to know that our mission to bring chiropractic to the world is succeeding,” Wood said of this event that has become a valuable Sherman tradition.

Clinic Challenge Experience Another Sherman rite of passage involves team building outside the normal academic activities. Since 2008 the Clinic Challenge Experience, a series of physical and mental challenges, has been a part of the transition from student to intern. The event was specifically designed to help students make a successful transition from classroom to chiropractic internship by sharpening their professional focus, energizing their passion for chiropractic,

and exposing them to success principles for practice. The challenges not only allow students to test themselves as individuals but also to test their ability to work with others to overcome obstacles. Faculty member Rebecca Boles, D.C., ’06, is a graduate of Sherman and an assistant team leader for the Clinic Challenge Experience, sometimes called CCX.

Director of Student Clinic Claudia Seay, D.C., ’80, sees this activity as an opportunity to foster camaraderie among team members, made up of students and faculty, as they learn how to trust each other and push themselves to conquer their fear of the unknown. Some parts of the ropes course are more challenging than others. Boles found the

“I have been fortunate enough to experience many Sherman traditions,” Boles said, noting that the Clinic Challenge has emerged as a staple of the clinic experience that brings faculty, staff and students together for a day of selfdiscovery and team building. Billy Stetzel was part of a student team that recently completed the challenge. Having grown up in a family of chiropractors, he was quick to grasp the value of how the experience prepared students to communicate and work as a team. “The most challenging part of the experience was stepping back and putting my own ego aside and recognizing that everyone’s opinion counts,” Stetzel said. “By setting ourselves aside and looking at the task at hand we had to

pole jump to be one of the most impactful events in the 10-station challenge, pointing out that it requires determination, self-confidence, and the ability to conquer fear. “Upon completion, participants develop a sense of accomplishment and feel like they can meet any future challenge with the same success,” Boles said. After eight years, Seay has watched the challenge become an integral part of the Sherman tradition, one that enhances the intern’s experience in the clinical program. “I believe it gives our interns an opportunity to work together and engage other people with their ideas, thoughts, and problem-solving skills,” Seay explained, adding that the challenge also gives the interns a sense of responsibility, teaching them to participate and contribute to any sort of project they are involved in. “I also think that participating in the ropes course experience gives them insight and a chance to discover things about themselves that they might

not have known prior to the Clinic Challenge Experience,” Seay said. Stetzel learned how important it is for everyone to be on the same page. That’s also true in the college’s on-campus Chiropractic Health Center, he said, and he knows that will be true when he graduates to his own practice. “If one person doesn’t know what the other is doing and people don’t know their roles, then things fall through the cracks and the whole system becomes disorganized, much like our message in chiropractic of good communication and organization through the body,” he said of lessons he learned working through the Clinic Challenge Experience. Boles is convinced the sense of accomplishment that participants develop helps them to meet future challenges with the same success. “This sense of resiliency when faced with obstacles is an important lesson students often cannot learn in the classroom setting,” Boles said of the value of the Clinic Challenge Experience.

“The most challenging part of the experience was stepping back, putting my own ego aside and recognizing that everyone’s opinion counts,” student Billy Stetzel said of the obstacles he faced during the Clinic Challenge. “By setting ourselves aside and looking at the task at hand we had to complete, we were really able to capitalize on all the group members’ strengths to achieve our common goal quickly.”

The pole jump is considered to be one of the most impactful events in the 10-station Clinic Challenge Experience. It requires determination, selfconfidence, and the ability to conquer fear. CCX is designed to help students make a successful transition from classroom to clinical internship.

Intern Pinning Ceremony Sherman’s most hallowed traditions are those that serve as rites of passage. One of the most meaningful is the Pinning Ceremony which celebrates the transition from student to intern. When students are ready to join the Health Center and begin to see outpatients, family and friends are invited to join in the ceremony to commemorate the event. Originally embedded in a pre-existing quarterly event, a separate Pinning Ceremony came about in 2014 as a result of a request by students through their student government representatives, Director of Student Clinic Claudia Seay, D.C., ’80, explained.

Dean of Clinic Operations and Outreach Kristy Shepherd, M.A., said that students appreciate the importance that is now placed on this pivotal moment in their journey. “The ceremony used to be quick, without much pomp and circumstance,” Shepherd said of the event that celebrates the students’ entrance into the final phase of their chiropractic education. “It is now much more meaningful, especially because it allows families to celebrate with us.” The Pinning Ceremony takes place when students enter their ninth quarter. “They have worked very hard in classes, completing heavy challenging science courses, and this brings them back up,” Shepherd said. “They think, ‘This is why I came to chiropractic college.’ It reinvigorates them.” Kayla Romeo, a Woodbridge, VA, native, considered the ceremony a rite of passage into the next chapter of her chiropractic journey. “It was like all of my hard work and all the obstacles I faced up to this point were all worth it, and I was a huge step closer to my dreams,” she said of the moment Seay presented her with her name tag. There had been many stages to her journey, what she calls “small rites of passage,” but, she says, “The pinning ceremony is like the tip of the iceberg signifying you are truly almost there.”

After having nurtured students for a full quarter in pre-clinic, as she pins each student, Seay is turning them over to clinic doctors. “Now they have graduated to the practical part of the program,” Shepherd said of the sense of accomplishment and pride that students feel as they receive their pins. Shepherd works with the planning team to ensure that the ceremony runs smoothly. After Student Clinic Faculty Doctor Kevin Power, D.C., ’81, administers the Oath of Professionalism, Seay pins each intern’s name tag onto his/her blue clinic jacket. Taking the pledge reminds students of their professional expectations as they move another step closer to graduation when they will take the Chiropractic Oath. Once the Pinning Ceremony takes place, students begin the clinical phase of the chiropractic program, practicing every aspect of patient care. They know that internship will give them the opportunity to become more a part of the community, building skills that will serve them well after graduation. “Sherman students transitioning into the clinical internship at the Health Center are well prepared to deliver quality and effective care to our friends and neighbors in the greater Spartanburg area,” Shepherd said of the step forward the Pinning Ceremony marks. “These students are the future of the chiropractic profession.”

Bell Ringing in the Clinic When bells begin ringing in the Health Center, everyone gathers quickly, in the reception area or around the railing overlooking the lobby to join in the celebration. They come because they want to witness Sherman’s most joyous tradition, one that marks the completion of the clinic experience and signifies that graduation is near. Shirlene Burnsed, recently retired Health Center receptionist, remembers the beginning of the tradition. She had bought a small bell and suggested that students ring it to announce when they were moving on to the next phase of their lives. “I began letting them ring the bell shortly after I started working at Sherman in 2000,” Burnsed recounts. “It was a small bell and there was really no ceremony attached. That beginning grew into the current Bell Ringing, with students inviting family and friends to share the moment.” Over the years, the size of the bell has increased as well. The original bell lost its ringer but was repaired using a washer on a wire. Then a student bought a second slightly larger silver bell and presented it to Burnsed. Finally, a larger brass bell, which fittingly had no ringer when it was found in an antique store, took its place beside the other two. When the time comes, students choose someone to ring the bell for them. One student chose his girlfriend and then proposed to her as part of the ceremony. Another chose a patient, who was overwhelmed to be included. As graduation nears, the Health Center might host three or four bell ringings in a single day. Robbie Freeman, a December 2016 graduate who is now in the process of opening an office in his hometown, remembers this ceremony as a culmination of a long evolution that took him from being a small business owner to a physical therapy technician to stay-at-home dad and now to his new career in chiropractic.

Interns and friends gather as December 2016 graduate Robbie Freeman, D.C., and his sisterin-law Mandy, his first patient, ring the bell signifying the completion of his clinical requirements.

Freeman finds it fitting that his first patient, his sister-in-law Mandy, rang the bell for him as his last patient. “I think the bell ringing serves as a symbol of transition in our practicing of chiropractic,” Freeman said of an event that he calls a “mixed bag of accomplishment and relief” that signified he was about to begin a new journey.

for everyone who has ever supported the student through the entire chiropractic experience,” Burnsed said of an event that has grown far more important than she ever imagined when she bought that first little bell.

“For me personally, it marked the beginning of celebrating the culmination of a four-year period that included hard work, long hours of study, unbelievable and generous sacrifice on the part of my wife and kids, a six-month leave of absence following the birth of our third child, friendships that encircle the globe, support and encouragement from our community in Boiling Springs, NC, and realizing the goal of being able to practice a profession that has strong potential to change lives.”

“Syllabus day,” traditionally the first day of classes for Sherman College students, has gone by the wayside to make space for an event with greater meaning and purpose: the Practice Success Program day that kicks off each quarter.

Recently all three bells were rung in a single ceremony, with the student’s spouse and children all joining in the celebration. And it’s not only shared by those who are able to be there. Students even record the event and post to social media or stream it on Facebook Live. “Increasingly, the ceremony is not just for students. It has become a tradition

Practice Success Program

Sherman College believes strongly that chiropractic college graduates deserve to excel by successfully practicing chiropractic and generating revenues through healthy, vibrant and prosperous practices centered on the chiropractic adjustment without the need to add secondary services. The Practice Success Program, developed in 2014-2015, is specifically designed to provide the best of what the Sherman College faculty and its partner, TLC4Superteams, bring to students. At the beginning of each quarter, TLC sends doctors with decades of experience to Sherman to work alongside the

college’s expert faculty and provide intensive training for students, covering everything from the foundational disciplines of practice and balanced living to being “pro-motion” and attracting people to chiropractic.

Every aspect of real-life patient care, including care plan development and decisions concerning what type of practice to open as well as the steps that should be taken in the weeks prior to opening a new clinic, are covered in the program. This innovative approach is aimed at preparing students for the financial aspects of succeeding in business. Further, the program points students toward the target of becoming D.C.s equipped to obliterate their student loan debt within six years of graduation. Faculty member Brian Dooley, D.C., ’05, directs the program, under the supervision of Vice President for Academic Affairs Joe Donofrio, D.C., ’94. Dooley says he remembers what it was like when he went into practice and is excited about the role the Practice Success Program will play in graduate success. “A survey of the profession revealed that chiropractic graduates across the board felt they lacked business knowledge,” he explained of the program’s development.

“We determined that what we teach in these buildings, they need to know how to put into practice out there,” he said of life after graduation. “We need to marry the two – help students to understand the business side of chiropractic. They need to talk about money now, what they’re going to do, what it will cost. I am excited to see what happens as a result of this program in the years to come.” Though the program is in its infancy, President Edwin Cordero, D.C., is encouraged by the strides that are being made. “In the short time since we instituted the Practice Success Program, we’ve realized that it not only presents a phenomenal opportunity, but that we are the only school doing this to this level,” he said. “I’m excited for the students and for the college. We are proud of the fact that we are giving our students the tools they need to be able to manage their finances, be good stewards of their funds. When we do that, we are not only helping current students but showing those considering chiropractic as a profession that it’s possible to establish a successful, debt-free practice.”

Developed in 2011 by Director of Alumni Relations Marggi Roldan and Public Relations Director Karen Rhodes, Sherman PRide Day allows the college family to share its PRide and generate positive PR (public relations) for the college, its people and its many contributions to the profession and the world. The college mascot is the lion, hence the “pride” theme. The Pride represents truth, strength and leadership and also celebrates the college’s community feel – a united family with a common goal. On Sherman PRide Day, typically held in mid- to late October, alumni and friends around the world celebrate their affiliation with Sherman by sharing positive information and uplifting messages about the college in their offices or on social media. Supporters have enjoyed the opportunity to celebrate being an important part of the Sherman College family, and many have used the day to reconnect with the college. Off-campus members of the Sherman family are encouraged to wear college clothing, share positive information or memories about the college, update their social media icons, share college videos, invite prospective students to visit their


chiropractic offices, call classmates, or make a donation to the college. On campus, the Sherman community celebrates with a party featuring music, games, snacks, a photo booth and free t-shirts. As with many traditions, what started as a small social-media-focused event has evolved. In 2016 the college launched a Text2Give campaign to fund scholarships for students as part of Sherman PRide Day; the inaugural Pride Award Scholarship was presented to Lindsay Carature as a $500 tuition credit and was awarded for winter quarter 2017 (see page 14 for details). The Pride Award was open to students showing exceptional school pride, whether through on-campus involvement and/or accomplishments, community service, academic achievements or other areas of pride. The money was raised one $10 text at a time as a challenge between alumni and students held on Sherman PRide Day. To participate, students and alumni texted a special code to a designated phone number, and the group with the highest percentage of participation was awarded the inaugural Sherman “Pride Cup Trophy” and a year’s worth of bragging rights. The students won.

“You Get an iPad!” Day An exciting new tradition at Sherman College is iPad Rollout Day. Last July, the college piloted its iSherman initiative (see page 16) by giving iPads to students in fourth-quarter classes. The devices contain everything from syllabi to e-books, at no additional tuition cost. Over the next year, every student on campus will be issued an iPad; after that, the distribution process will take place during first quarter. Student Lauren Golden was among the first to receive her iPad. She admitted she thought the program was too good to be true when she first heard of it. “With these [iPads], we have all the lessons, videos and teachers’ materials right at our fingertips,” she said. “The fact they trust us and gave us these iPads is an honor for us.” Director of Teaching and Learning Billie Harrington, Ph.D., explained that the iSherman program “provides students with the opportunity to transition away from some of the typical lecture-focused instruction to focus more on the application of the course content. That improves the learning experience for all our students.” Faculty members were the first to use iPads in their classrooms almost two years ago, and the infusion of technology is

having a tremendous impact on teaching and learning. The iSherman initiative is designed to transform chiropractic education with a teaching and learning environment that is forward-thinking in its approach and that leads the field. Sherman is the only chiropractic college with this level of technological integration for its students. Professor of Clinical Sciences Cindy Gibbon, M.T., D.C., ’91, said that the more professors can provide new ways of learning, the better students perform. “In this day and age, students are used to high-tech learning,” she said. “The regular old textbook and notes don’t cut it. Students have to be engaged.”

CSG, Fun Days and More The traditions of Chiropractic Student Government (CSG) are alive and well at Sherman College, including student and alumni favorites like Welcome Back (club day and new quarter kickoff), Fun Day and Thanksgiving lunch. The college’s Student Affairs Office serves as sponsor and advisor to this active student government group, overseeing its activities and helping ensure the events run smoothly. Although details for these “staple” CSG events have been tweaked throughout the years to meet the needs of the campus, the spirit of community and unity remains. “It’s a time for the entire campus community to get together, eat, mingle and unwind,” explains Assistant Dean of Student Affairs Michelle Schutrumpf. “The academic program is very fast-paced and rigorous and can cause a lot of stress. The events we help host are meant to provide some fun and a way for everyone to enjoy themselves. We want students to be able to look back fondly at their time at Sherman and remember the ‘family’ atmosphere that Sherman is known for.”

Share with Us! Fourth-quarter students celebrate during their iPad rollout day last year. The college’s iSherman initiative was developed to enhance teaching and learning and provides each student with an iPad.

“I am so excited to announce that I got accepted into Sherman College of Chiropractic! Let’s toast to new adventures in South Carolina for the next three and a half years! After my “Showcase Sherman Weekend,” I knew for certain that this is where I belong. Everything from the environment, to the philosophy fit. I knew in my heart this was the college for me. I am so excited to finally be living my dream of becoming a chiropractor. I start in October! AHHH! *freaking out with enthusiasm*” – Laura Bellefontaine, DC2B & Showcase Sherman attendee

Education of our unique service is more than a conceptual one. The chiropractor needs to make real the spine and the benefit of a healthy spine. As the patient understands a subluxation, they take a huge step in embracing the uniqueness of our service. Caution must be taken, though, to not create the “subluxation condition.” Patients may come to us for low back pain or headaches or bedwetting and we replace the medical condition with the subluxation. A subluxation should be corrected because a subluxation in a person’s spine keeps them from fully expressing their potential. A subluxation is not a pathology that needs to be treated; rather, it is a state of the body that is less than ideal, and chiropractors can provide a specific force to the body to allow its correction. Every technique has a different model of the spine as they determine the best manner to direct the chiropractor to place a force into the spine. This is the unique service of chiropractors.

Stay tuned to our videos at http://youtube.com/shermancollege

The issue is whether we focus on a healthy spine or ridding the body of subluxation. The real goal that chiropractors share is to have a healthy spine and nerve system. The strategy we use to get there is the correction of spinal subluxations.

unique to chiropractors. The concept of salutogenesis had its origins more than 30 years ago within the field of medical sociology. This term describes an approach focusing on factors that support human health and well-being, rather than on factors that cause disease (pathogenesis). Although very aligned to our philosophy of “improving health” rather than “treating conditions,” it is not a replacement of our philosophy and/or practice objectives. Vitalism is recognition that the whole is larger than the sum of its parts. It has its origins in the later part of the 1800s and honors aspects of mechanism and spiritualism. Vitalism is a framework within which our philosophy fits, but it is not what chiropractic is. Our objective to correct vertebral subluxations is the specific strategy we have to contribute to well-being of our patients; the goal of building well-being is a larger frame. People are always better off without subluxations than with subluxations. This is the central focus of how we serve our patients. The concepts of salutogenesis, vitalism and even health are important ones, and all are aligned to our philosophy. But none of these define the practice of chiropractic. Chiropractic is the location and correction of vertebral subluxations. That service is non-duplicative and is what makes us unique. Sherman College strives to offer excellence in that art form and graduate competent, compassionate, highly skilled chiropractors to offer that service to humanity. I am proud to play a part in it.

Our Honor Roll of Donors by Senior Director of Institutional Advancement Roger Sullivan It is a privilege to fill this space, with the singular purpose of persuading you to spend a few moments with our Donor Honor Roll. Listed here are individuals who took the time to celebrate their belief that chiropractic makes a difference, and that Sherman College empowers that difference. We have thanked them, but not nearly enough. Your eyes passing over their names may add energy to our gratitude. Please thank the ones you know. Do not be surprised if they respond by encouraging you to be on the list too, or perhaps to step up a notch if you already are. They take Sherman seriously, and we are delighted! In this and future issues, you will be seeing more and more reasons to take Sherman seriously and to be seen on this precious list of investors. Across four decades in fundraising, I have experienced the culture of many educational institutions, some with bigger footprints and raucous football stadiums, some with giant endowments. But in all my years in the field, I have found none with more heart or determination to serve. Since this magazine found its way to you, you should have some sense of that already. So, be proud of Sherman. Very proud. With all good wishes,
