Parker University is home to students who have reached remarkable educational milestones and to those who strive to make a real difference with their health-related careers. Parker University is proud to recognize current students and twin brothers, Adison and Lachlan Wood, who brought their dreams and goals to Dallas all the way from Canada.
Earlier this year the university graduated twin sisters LaTonya and LaToya Harris, who concluded a second set of master’s degrees in functional nutrition and their doctorate degrees in chiropractic medicine at Parker.
After graduating from Southern Adventist University, each with a bachelor’s degree in health sciences, twin brothers Adison and Lachlan chose Parker University based on the faculty’s philosophical teaching of chiropractic, as well as a convincing recommendation from a chiropractor.
The twins have only been at Parker University for one trimester. They are looking forward to the coming trimesters as they continue their unique journey into their chiropractic educations with the support of Parker University’s faculty, innovative environment, and technological advancements. For the twins, Parker University feels like one community and family where everyone is supportive and has similar goals. “It is a blessing to be able to come to a school like Parker where the integrity of freedom is upheld and where the quality of education and service is not compromised,” Adison says.
In the future, Adison has goals of working with athletes and opening a practice where holistic health is emphasized. “I would like my work as a chiropractor to be utilized as a medical missionary, whether domestic or abroad,” he shares. Lachlan adds, “I would like to set up my own practice and focus on making a difference in the lives of my patients.”
