OK gang, I’m back from Oakland, California (AirBart FTW!) and I still have loads of photos to sort through from the Life West weekend event. Not surprisingly, things cranked in my LA chiropractic office today, as a humorous reminder of how our head space effects volume and flow. I’ll get some Luau photos posted before the weekend, but here’s some more from the Friday night inaugural event.
Newly inaugurated President of Life Chiropractic College West, Dr. Brian Kelly, cut the cake with help from one of his kids. I mentioned in an earlier post that the event was fantastic (the entire weekend was) and Dr. Kelly not only cut us cake (it was yummy), he blew us all away with his trombone performance.
I wasn’t expecting an incoming chiropractic president that had such musical talent, and I think it gave those in attendance an opportunity to see another side of the new captain at LCCW. I’m looking forward to see what else we’re going to see from the bay area chiropractic school.
The crowd was all smiles as chiropractors celebrated, ate cake, and listened to jazz. Earlier in the day, chiropractors received continuing education hours, and got to listen to some terrific presentations from top educators in the field. Friday night was the inauguration and celebration, with more events (and a Luau) on Saturday.
Nearly every chiropractor that has done national board review for x-ray related studies in the past 20 years, recognizes the face of 1983 magna cum laude PA Chiropractic College graduate, Dr John Donofrio DC, DACNB. Looking snappy in his classy bow tie, Donofrio was joined by the beautiful Kim Gorman and San Francisco Chiropractor, Dr. Keith Fretty.
I was so impressed with the number of chiropractors that turned out for the event, and I had a great time catching up with chiropractors on their whereabouts and activities. Colleagues had new offices open, had moved to new cities, had kids going to chiropractic school, and I had to get all the latest. If you don’t know, I love what I do. Great to see so many friends enjoying their lives so fully.
Attendees and presenters included Life Chiropractic College President Dr. Guy Riekeman, everyone’s favorite SoCal Chiropractic Rock Goddess Mary Jane, Dr. Billy DeMoss, and Dr. Scott Sawyer (in above photo from left to right). While I have great times traveling to New Jersey for New Beginnings and Atlanta for LifeForce, I’m rather excited about having more principled chiropractic events to attend in California.
Here’s one more view of Dr. Kelly playing trombone with the band. Photos from the weekend will continue to be posted throughout this week and we’ll have some news on awards and accolades as well. Thanks to everyone who helped make this weekend a success.
