May 22, 2014 — David Beavers, DC, MEd, MPH, has been named director of Logan’s Viscero-Somatic Center, endowed by the Loomis Institute of Enzyme Nutrition. Beavers is responsible for guiding Logan student interns with consultations, exams, diagnostics and treatments using chiropractic techniques and enzyme therapy related to viscero-somatic stress management.
“I’m thrilled about starting a position that combines my past experience, training and education and focuses in one direction: viscero-somatic reflexes in the body,” Beavers said. “In addition to interacting with students, I look forward to expanding the base of knowledge and providing prevention information and evidence-based research for improved patient care.”
Beavers earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Logan in 1990 and holds a Masters of Education from the University of Arkansas and a Masters of Public Health from Saint Louis University. He has instructed at the university level for more than a decade, most recently teaching basic and chiropractic science at Logan and health management and policy at Saint Louis University.
Beavers has also worked as a chiropractic physician at Heartland Healthcenter, which he opened in 1992, and has served as a co-investigator or principal investigator on several studies with more than seven years of research experience. He is certified in acupuncture, as well.
