It is especially rewarding to provide this scholarship to a future health care professional who shares our passion for improving the quality of life.

The 2014 Dr. Michael Dobbins Excellence in Nutritional Education Scholarship was given to Life Chiropractic College West (Life West) student Shea Lindsay during the college’s annual Spring for Life event held in May. Lindsay is the fifth recipient of the $10,000 scholarship presented by whole food supplement manufacturer Standard Process Inc.

This is the first scholarship being presented after the unexpected December 2013 passing of former chiropractor, Life West alum and scholarship namesake, Michael Dobbins, of Alameda, California. In 2009, Dobbins was the first recipient of the Standard Process Excellence in Nutritional Education Award for practitioners. Selected because of his commitment to educating others for more than two decades, Dobbins was one of the most revered speakers on complementary health care and an internationally renowned lecturer in the field of nutrition and herbal therapy.

As part of the Excellence in Nutrition award program, Standard Process also provides a $100,000 scholarship program for the recipient’s alma mater, awarded through the course of 10 years. In her winning essay Lindsay detailed how she embraces the Standard Process whole food philosophy and how she will incorporate it into her own “Whole Food, Whole Body, Whole YOU” philosophy.

“It is especially rewarding to provide this scholarship to a future health care professional who shares our passion for improving the quality of life,” said John C. Nab, D.C., director of professional development for Standard Process. “Shea Lindsay, like Standard Process founder, Dr. Royal Lee and Life West alum, Dr. Michael Dobbins, believes in the natural nutritional potency of whole foods.”

In addition to the essay requirement, scholarship applicants need to:

  •     Have at least three quarters remaining before graduation
  •     Have a cumulative grade point average of 2.9 or higher
  •     Provide a list of their contributions to the profession, the college, and the community
  •     Provide a letter of recommendation from a Life West professor
