June 13, 2013 — Standard Process Inc. presented its 2013 Dr. Michael Dobbins Excellence in Nutritional Education Scholarship to James Evans, a Life Chiropractic College West student. The scholarship provides $10,000 to Evans to pursue his chiropractic and wellness education.
“I am so thankful for the scholarship and to Standard Process,” says Evans. “Being capable of incorporating nutrition into my future chiropractic wellness paradigm will make a huge difference in my capacity to serve society in creating healthier lives.” Evans was selected for his essay on how he will educate and improve the health of patients who face weight-related health challenges in his future practice. He is the fourth recipient of the scholarship.
“It’s important to have students learn the value of nutrition and the advantages of whole food supplements while they’re in school,” says John Nab, DC, director of professional development at Standard Process. “Standard Process is proud to offer scholarship opportunities for chiropractic students interested in integrating whole food supplements into their future practice.”
Standard Process Northern California Distributor Justin Toal presented Evans with his scholarship during Life West’s Spring for Life event held May 9 on the school’s campus. The scholarship encourages Life West students to study whole food nutrition while pursuing their degrees.
The Standard Process Dr. Michael Dobbins Excellence in Nutritional Education Scholarship is open to Life West students with at least three quarters remaining before graduation. Evans has six quarters left before earning his degree. In addition to the essay, scholarship applicants need to:
- Have a cumulative grade point average of 2.9 or higher
- Provide a list of their contributions to the profession, the college, and the community
- Provide a letter of recommendation from a professor at the school
Standard Process established its Excellence in Nutritional Education Award for practitioners in 2009 and announced a $100,000 scholarship program would be provided over a 10-year period to each award recipient’s alma mater. Chiropractor and Life West alum, Michael Dobbins, of Alameda, Calif., was the first recipient of the Excellence in Nutritional Education Award.
