Chiropractic schools and education articles that garnered the most looks from readers in 2021
Chiropractic schools battled remote vs. in-person learning, COVID testing and social distancing, and in some cases just struggles to keep the lights on during semesters in 2021. At some schools students demanded part of a tuition reimbursement after their studies went all-online, just one of many struggles universities faced this year as COVID surged and waned.
The Chronicle of Higher Education noted, “COVID-19 touched off a financial wildfire for colleges, fanned by short-term losses and expenses but fueled by the fundamental fiscal precarities that many institutions have been facing — or failing to face — for some time.”
The most popular schools and education articles on Chiropractic Economics in 2021 included a feature on virtual reality labs used in chiropractic classrooms, patient education materials, and higher education institutions dealing with COVID-19.
“This is a wake-up call,” said the World Health Organization’s Head of Emergencies, Mike Ryan, in December. “We are learning now how to do things better — science, logistics, training and governance, how to communicate better. But the planet is fragile. We live in an increasingly complex global society. These threats will continue. If there is one thing we need to take from this pandemic, with all of the tragedy and loss, is we need to get our act together.”

The interface is the most realistic experience you can have studying anatomy, short of performing actual cadaver dissections. You can easily manipulate, rotate, zoom in, dissect, expose and study the human anatomy. The experience is almost as if you had a holographic cadaver standing before you…”

“I do feel the combination of sports management, functional nutrition and chiropractic is very powerful. Toya and I feel that our nutritional background has aided in providing us an even better understanding of the power food has in helping our bodies heal. As chiropractors, I think it is important to understand not only how our bodies work from a mechanical standpoint, [but also] how the body responds to the environment, food and movement. When these elements are well balanced, they create a great foundation for our bodies to perform and recover optimally.”

“The figures are startling,” reported the Chronicle of Higher Education as our Schools Issue went to press in the first week of January regarding current issues in higher education. Last fall and winter, as COVID-19 tightened its grip on the U.S. economy, approximately 22% fewer students went straight to college as compared to the previous year, according to the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center, and “10-20% of colleges in the U.S. could perish within a year due to the coronavirus pandemic,” predicted Scott Galloway, professor of marketing at the NYU Stern School of Business.
