April 9, 2013 — At the National Chiropractic Legislative Conference (NCLC) held last month, four chiropractic students received $2,500 scholarships from Standard Process Inc.
This is the fifth year Standard Process has awarded the scholarships as part of the company’s more than $10 million long-term educational outreach effort to involve current and future healthcare professionals in the study of whole food nutrition.
Three students from Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, Minn., received scholarships: Heidi Henson, eighth trimester; Steven Huybrecht, fifth trimester; and Brandon Mickelson, seventh trimester. The fourth recipient was Nicholas Maio, a fourth trimester student at New York Chiropractic College in Seneca Falls, N.Y.

The scholarships were presented by John Nab, DC, director of professional development for Standard Process, during the Student American Chiropractors Association (SACA) welcome meeting. “Through the years we’ve experienced more students wanting to learn about nutrition before they leave school,” noted Nab. “This way, they are already prepared to educate patients on making better nutritional choices right away.”
In total, 45 applications from 12 different colleges were received. Active SACA members were eligible to apply for the scholarships, and applicants were asked to craft a 500-word essay on patient compliance and how to counsel a patient struggling to follow their nutritional protocol. The essays were reviewed by an independent panel of four reviewers. Applicants also needed to attend the 2013 NCLC.
