Alumni Association Sponsors First DC2B ChiroCon

This month, the Sherman College Alumni Association sponsored the first-ever DC2B ChiroCon, an event designed specifically for students. The event was created because DCs2B are in a different phase of their career with no large events directed specifically toward them and their needs. DC2B ChiroCon was the first event of its kind to be offered by a school and made free to all students from any college.

“Chiropractic students are the future of our profession, and as a cohort, they face very different challenges than many docs who have been out in the field for a decade or more with the evolution of education and current economy,” says Sherman College Continuing Education Director and Alumni Association President Dr. Jillian Farrell, ’09. “If we want the chiropractic profession to thrive, we must invest in our future. We hope for this annual event to gain traction with students navigating their path toward practice.”

With more than 100 students registered from eight different schools, the first DC2B ChiroCon was a great success. DC2B Julie said of the event, “I thoroughly enjoyed learning from all five doctors who shared their knowledge with us. I have more than 10 pages of notes I took at the event.”

Academy of Chiropractic Philosophers Program Concludes
Twelve chiropractors recently earned the Academy of Chiropractic Philosophers (ACP) designation, completing the coursework in Sherman Colleges ACP program on December 6, 2020, in Spartanburg, SC. Each received a certificate and medallion of completion.
The ACP is a one-year course designed to enhance the understanding, depth, and breadth of chiropractic philosophy. Sessions challenge the thinking process and the application of philosophy in the chiropractic profession. Successful completion of the 100-hour program leads to membership in the prestigious Academy of Chiropractic Philosophers, and the ICA Council on Philosophical Chiropractic Standards accepts the successful completion of the ACP for 100 hours toward its Diplomate in Philosophical Chiropractic Standards.

If you would like more information regarding the ACP program or are interested in hosting a group of 20 or more chiropractors in your area, please email Angel Radick in the Office of Academic Affairs, call 800-849-8771, ext. 221, or visit the website.

The ROAR Program is designed to mentor and inspire the next generation of doctors of chiropractic. This program gives current D.C.s the opportunity to change students lives by mentoring them and recruiting them to build the chiropractic profession.

Lyceum 2021: Time to Shine Moved to October

Sherman College has been carefully evaluating plans for Lyceum 2021 over the past few weeks in accordance with current events and local, state, and federal recommendations regarding COVID-19. The college has opted to postpone Lyceum 2021 until October 28-30, 2021, in hopes that it can host its annual homecoming and continuing education event experience on campus and in person.

As the year progresses, we will continue to evaluate the safety and potential liability of hosting this event, and we will keep you informed with as much advance notice as possible. No matter what happens, you can count on Lyceum 2021 happening on October 28-30, either in-person or virtually.

The goal is to host this event in person so we can see our alumni and supporters, connect with new friends, and celebrate our wonderful profession together, just the way B.J. intended at the first Lyceum so many years ago. Please watch our website for the latest program information and updates. One way or another, we'll see you in October! Read the full announcement.
