Greetings!

Welcome to Sherman Shares, the college's monthly newsletter for alumni and friends. It features news about Sherman College, upcoming events, continuing education opportunities, research, and activities on campus.
Website Launch: A New Way to Show Our #ShermanPride

We’re excited to share that a new www.sherman.edu launches today! Inspired by the desire to provide clearer messages, more engaging content, easier navigation and beautiful images, our revamped website takes #ShermanPride to a new level.
 
Our big ideas were focused on creating the best experiences for our many groups and followers – including prospective students, current students, alumni, supporters, continuing education clients, Health Center patients, employees, community partners and more.
 
Junior System Administrator Todd Bachman oversaw the four-month project, partnering with Drum Creative, a web design firm in Greenville, SC. “This website update has been one of the most enjoyable projects I have gotten to work on at Sherman,” he shared. “Our main goals have been to bring an updated, clean look to our website and make it easier to navigate.”
 
The site incorporates a new chat feature that will allow prospective students to interact with the Admissions team. Bachman and Drum Creative also implemented simplified, clean menus so that each audience can find all the helpful and necessary resources in one convenient place.
 
We would love your help celebrating our revamped website. We will be sharing updates on our social channels, particularly Facebook and Instagram, so please “like” and “share” with us! We can’t wait for you to explore the new site and share in the #ShermanPride!
Sherman Becomes First Chiropractic College to Install CBCT
 
True to its commitment of leading chiropractic education and improving patient care, Sherman College has become the first chiropractic college to introduce cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) to its radiology department.
 
CBCT is a radiographic imaging method that allows accurate, three-dimensional imaging of hard tissue structures; its use and emergence in medical diagnostic imaging make CBCT an exciting addition to chiropractic radiographic analysis in the upper cervical region of the spine.
 
“Adding new technologies like cone beam computed tomography here at Sherman College further enhances our doctor of chiropractic program, improves patient care, and increases engagement and research opportunities within the profession and the community,” said Vice President for Academic Affairs Joe Donofrio, D.C., ’94, A.C.P.

COVID-19: Sherman Family Sees Silver Lining, Celebrates Adaptability
 
With Sherman College’s switch to online learning for spring quarter 2020, our college community has taken numerous changes in stride. Faculty adapted their courses. Students have realized that time management is key. And many have found some challenges and perks associated with their new co-workers (pets, children and roommates!).
 
To highlight our students, faculty and even some of our furry friends, the college has launched several projects on social media. Keep an eye out on our college Facebook page, our Admissions Facebook page, and our main Instagram page, as well as our Admissions Instagram .

You’ll find student profiles, faculty spotlights, furry study-mates and co-workers, and even an occasional story time post with our employees! We hope these posts help inspire you and brighten your days during this time.

Education: B.S. in exercise science, minor in Spanish from UNC Wilmington.

Interns Join Chiropractic Health Center

Twenty-six interns are now ready to serve the community and see patients at the Sherman College Chiropractic Health Center, a teaching clinic for senior students in their final stage of internship prior to graduation from the doctor of chiropractic program. In an abundance of caution, the Health Center is currently closed for patient care with a reopening date currently under consideration.
 
“Sherman students transitioning into their 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,” said Dean of Clinic Operations and Outreach Kristy Shepherd, M.A. “These students are the future of the chiropractic profession. On behalf of the faculty and staff of the Sherman College Health Center, we are proud and excited to welcome this newest class of chiropractic interns.” See the list of interns and read the release on our blog .
Chiropractic Student Government Unites Students During Online Learning

Chiropractic Student Government (CSG) builds leadership skills and relationships among students as they work within the governance process to address the needs of the Sherman College student body and oversee all campus clubs.

“I’m proud of our CSG executive board as they work together through these unprecedented times to ensure that our students stay well informed,” said Director for Student Affairs Michelle Schutrumpf. “They are doing a great job creating a more accessible student government, providing valuable perspectives on the student experience, and keeping students connected to the college.”

The executive board has worked diligently to support and unite the campus during this significant change to remote learning. The officers quickly facilitated the process of bringing all 25 clubs on campus to a virtual platform for their weekly meetings this quarter. They also hosted a virtual meet-and-greet with first quarter students to offer support and advice during their first full week of classes.

CSG re-invented Club Day and hosted (for the first time ever) a virtual opportunity for students to explore active clubs on campus. The group also hosted its first virtual General Assembly Meeting open to the entire campus. The officers have created a list of potential community service opportunities (quarantine-approved) for students to engage in. Opportunities include donating blood, sewing face masks, donating to local food banks, and contacting a local senior citizen facility to send letters, set up phone calls, or Skype with the residents to offer support and companionship. Since starting their term in January, the officers have already submitted four proposals designed to improve campus.

International Research and Philosophy Symposium Postponed

In spring 2020, Sherman College’s Office of Academic Affairs committed its focus and resources to ensuring a smooth transition to online learning in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We have been carefully monitoring events and recognize that the spread of this virus will have long-term effects on many chiropractic offices and research opportunities. Due to these considerations, we regret to announce that our 17th International Research and Philosophy Symposium ( IRAPS ) has been postponed until 2021.

While we are disappointed to not see everyone and hear the latest in evidence-based research and principled philosophy at IRAPS this year, the college looks forward to further improving this seminar and hosting IRAPS once again in October 2021.

Sherman College Lyceum 2020 Becomes Virtual Event

The Sherman College Continuing Education team has been working tirelessly behind the scenes to move our in-person annual Lyceum (April 30 - May 2) to a live-streamed event for the first time in Sherman College history. 
In response to COVID-19, many states have lifted caps to the amount of distance learning hours you can earn, made exemptions for live-streamed events, and even moved to allow distance learning in lieu of live events for the first time ever. But one thing remains constant – 98% are still requiring licensees to get their hours regardless of the unprecedented situation. For information on your state, please visit https://cvent.me/RqGLrE .
While we may not have the gift of revenue right now, with so many chiropractors having to either cut back on hours or close completely, we do have the gift of time. Take advantage of our virtual Lyceum where you can earn up to 23 credits in most states for $359 or only $15 per credit hour. States are still requiring D.C.s to earn hours, and this could be your most economical opportunity to complete them. If you are already registered, stay tuned for updates on how to access Lyceum as it approaches. If you have any questions, please contact Director of Continuing Education Dr. Jillian Farrell .
