Foot Levelers Partners with Life West to Advance Chiropractic Education

Foot Levelers, Inc., an avid and generous supporter of chiropractic education and the profession, has partnered with Life Chiropractic College West in a multi-phased project to be completed over the course of several years. This comprises the second $250,000 pledge of a donation totaling $500,000. The agreement includes a donation of orthotic scanning equipment, positioning imaging technology and expert training. Patients of Life West’s health center will also benefit as they will receive educational materials, evaluation services and Foot Levelers products. Life West students will also gain access to the latest orthotic technology, and receive the in-depth clinical training needed to provide the highest level of care to their patients.

Free Continuing Chiropractic Education

I don’t think I know a single chiropractor that doesn’t like free continuing education, and I believe it’s available in many states throughout the country. In nearly every state of the US I believe chiropractors are required to complete continuing education (CE) hours on a regular basis. In some states educational requirements are done yearly, and in other states educational requirements are taken care of biannually. Chiropractic continuing education hours are typically 12 to 20 hours per year, depending on the state educational hours are being applied for. I like going for continuing education each year, not only for learning new information, but for getting together with other chiropractors and finding out what they’ve been up to the past year or so.

LWCC Gerald Clum and Council on Chiropractic Education

I’m the most senior member of the chiropractic college community in the educational circle. I’ve been President of Life West for 25 years, was on the faculty, the founding faculty of Life University, then Life Chiropractic College in 1975, and on the faculty of the Palmer College of Chiropractic before that. In addition to serving as President of Life West, I presently serve as the First Vice President of the World Federation of Chiropractic and, barring any unforeseen foolishness on my part, will assume the presidency of that later in the month.

FSCO Richard Plummer and Council on Chiropractic Education

I’m Dr. Richard Plummer. I practice in South Carolina, and I have served on the Board of the Chiropractic Examiners in South Carolina for nine years. I was a member of a chiropractic college administration and also faculty for 12 years. But today I’m here because I serve currently as the Chairman for the Federation of Straight Chiropractors and Organizations, also known as the FSCO.
