October 10, 2013 — In late September, 75 student chiropractic leaders visited the corporate headquarters of whole food supplement manufacturer Standard Process Inc., as the Student American Chiropractic Association (SACA) held its 2013 leadership conference at the company’s corporate headquarters. This marked the 10th anniversary of the annual conference and the first time the event was not held on a chiropractic university campus.
“It is our privilege to be a part of this historic anniversary for SACA,” said John Nab, DC, professional development director at Standard Process. “Being able to provide the facility to host SACA’s annual leadership conference is a huge honor for Standard Process.”
During the conference, students heard from many influential chiropractors, including Mike Simone, DC, American Chiropractic Association chairman of the board and Richard Branson, DC, member of the board of directors at the University of Western States.
Conference attendees also heard from Standard Process President Charles C. DuBois who praised SACA members for their commitment to becoming chiropractors. The executive board of SACA then presented DuBois with a handmade canvas picture signed by the entire SACA leadership group.
Standard Process has invested more than $10 million into long-term educational outreach efforts to involve current and future health care professionals in the study of whole food nutrition. In addition to monetary support for the colleges, Standard Process offers learning opportunities on campuses, supports student activities, invests in the universities to enhance student experiences, and provides scholarships to several colleges.
