July 6, 2011 — Cleveland Chiropractic College is pleased to announce the launch of an informative, new educational program called “Cleveland Health Series.”
Coordinated by the college’s Office of Admissions, the series is a tool to educate the public about different aspects of health and wellness that affect daily life. Although the program contains some elements of chiropractic care, it is supplemented with a variety of other topics as well. Each event in the series will feature a presentation from a health expert providing professional insight to their particular subject.
Melissa Denton, director of admissions at the college, said offering a series of monthly programs like this is something she has wanted to do for quite some time. Even though recruiters have seen attendance at college and alumni events dwindle somewhat, the need to share information about the college and its programs has remained strong.
“More and more of our prospective students are looking at a variety of health-related programs,” Denton said. “Considering all of the opportunities related to chiropractic, such as sports, pediatrics, animals, acupuncture, and nutrition, this series can help inform the prospective students and their families about the wide array of options available to the doctor of chiropractic.”
A partial listing of topics scheduled throughout this year and into 2012 includes: athletic lifestyles, nutrition, stress-free living, massage therapy, and acupuncture. Each will include an in-depth presentation on the subject matter, as well as an analysis of its benefits to the audience.
“Our alumni and faculty have this abundance of expertise and knowledge about health, and we asked them to share it with our prospective and current students and other audiences that are just curious to learn more about ways to improve their health,” Denton said. “They agreed, and that idea became the Cleveland Health Series!”
Denton believes the series can be a valuable learning tool for the next generation of healthcare professionals.
“I think that everyone can benefit from a mentor or a coach, and hopefully this series will provide some of our prospective and current students those networking opportunities,” she said. “Our campus is top-notch with some of the best science labs and technology available, so it seems appropriate to invite the community to promote health and wellness.”
