January 22, 2011 — Frigid weather and the start of the winter trimester can only mean one thing, it’s almost time to welcome chiropractic graduates back to Northwestern Health Sciences University.
The College of Chiropractic will host the 2011 Homecoming and Winter Gathering, one of the largest chiropractic homecomings Feb. 3–5.
Homecoming provides a great opportunity for the Northwestern community to reconnect with old friends, tour the campus, receive continuing education and have a good time. “We love having alumni back on campus,” says Debbie Peterson, executive director of alumni, development and career services. “It’s a way for the university to stay connected with our graduates and show that we care about their success.”
Homecoming is a great way to network with chiropractic professionals and Northwestern alumni. Every year the event draws approximately 1,000 attendees, including doctors, students, chiropractic assistants, and more than 120 vendors. Students can attend for no charge by signing up to work at the event.
The registration fee for the 2011 Homecoming is $225 and includes all seminars and luncheons on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, as well as the Friday night reception. The reception on Friday night will be at the Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport Hilton, including dinner and entertainment. All other events will be held at Northwestern Health Sciences University.
This year, Northwestern celebrates 70 years of educating doctors of chiropractic at the Friday evening reception; and welcomes alumni to join in cheering on the Naturals in home ice hockey action Saturday night.
