Palmer Has a New Web Site

By Michael Dorausch, D.C.

The Palmer Chiropractic University Foundation has a series of new websites to represent their schools and activities. Actually, Palmer has had their new web site system since the beginning of this year but I have been delayed in getting the news out. The main web site,, looks great and there is lots of info available. The opening screen (in Palmer purple) gives us our choices of Palmer college in Davenport Iowa, Palmer college West in San Jose California, and Palmer college Florida in Port Orange (yes, there is a new Palmer College in Florida!). There are also primary links for chiropractic research, information about Lyceum, chiropractic history, and the latest Palmer news and events.

Some of you may be wondering Palmer Florida, when did their become a Palmer Florida? Well, this is been in the works for some time and in fact, classes are to begin in October of this year. Visit the Palmer Florida section of the web site for more information.

One of the sections of the web site I liked best is the chiropractic history section, particularly the section about the Palmer mansion. The Palmer mansion fact sheet tells us briefly about B. J. and Mabel Palmer’s collection of idols, lambs, knives, rugs, art, and memorabilia. Also in the history section, we can read about some of B. J. Palmer’s many epigrams, which according to the web site, were designed to influence Palmer students, staff, and faculty attitudes. You can view some of the epigrams on the Palmer web site, such as…

Throw away your wishbone, straighten up your backbone, stick out your jawbone and go to it.

When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on.

Chiropractic is health insurance. Premium small. Dividends large.

An optimist is the one who sees a light where there is none. A pessimist is one who blows it out.

Hats off to all involved at Palmer for creating a great new web system. Add this to your list of resources for chiropractic information on the internet. @ 8:57 am | Article ID: 1021478263
