October 26, 2010 — Dr. Fabrizio Mancini, president of Parker College of Chiropractic, recently invited Dr. Gary Walsemann, president of the International Chiropractors Association (ICA) and Dr. Rick McMichael, president of the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) to speak to Parker students.
Walsemann and McMichael are working together to ensure the progression of the profession. They asked for the students’ support, energy, and focus. They also encouraged them to be the best chiropractors they can be by going the extra mile and getting involved in chiropractic organizations.
“Don’t forget the power that’s in your hands, your heads, and your hearts,” said McMichael.
Mancini also asked the students to become involved in the profession by joining state associations and organizations like ICA and ACA. “Even if you do nothing else, become a member to help fund research, help with government efforts, and help move the profession forward,” said Mancini.
Walsemann and McMichael challenged the students to work hard, study, and prepare for their future.
“I see students being trained as leaders with a passion — a passion that is being encouraged and nurtured at Parker” said Walsemann.
Parker College used its podcasting technology to record and download audio from the presentation. They are preparing to give the audio to other chiropractic colleges and will ask them to share the message with their students in an effort to encourage more students around the world to become involved in chiropractic associations.
