On Dec. 12, President Ron Oberstein, DC, and the executive team at Life Chiropractic College West welcomed Peter Kevorkian, DC, as Vice President of Institutional Advancement.
Having started in his new role on Jan. 2, Kevorkian reports directly to Oberstein. He will oversee areas of the college under Institutional Advancement, including Alumni Relations, College Events/Activities, Fundraising, and Capital Campaign initiatives.
Life West is excited about the value Kevorkian adds to the college with his wealth of experience, knowledge, contacts and professional connections. He has been involved in higher education for over 20 years and has served and consulted on numerous boards throughout the chiropractic field. That includes serving as Chairman of the Board of Trustees at Sherman College of Chiropractic as well as President of the Board of The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA).
His accomplishments in the field of chiropractic have been recognized through a number of awards. Most recently, he and his wife, Patti Giuliano, DC, received the Thom & Betty Gelardi Award from Sherman College of Chiropractic. He’s been named Chiropractor of the Year from the Massachusetts Chiropractic Society, The International Federation of Chiropractors and Organizations, and Sherman College of Chiropractic.
Kevorkian earned his doctor of chiropractic degree as a 1982 graduate of Palmer – Davenport, with an undergraduate education in Civil Engineering from Tufts University in Massachusetts. He and his wife have two adult children, Katie and Christopher. Together, they’ve spent over 40 years developing their practice, Westwood Family Chiropractic, in Westwood, Massachusetts. That practice is considered the standard in the vitalistic, salutogenic model for chiropractic.
Kevorkian’s vision is to support individuals and families to achieve their highest potential. He trains and inspires DCs and chiropractic professionals with his teaching, motivating and speaking engagements. He is an international speaker and instructor in chiropractic family practice.
