Chiropractic and nutrition play a key role in a patient’s ability to transform their health.
Palmyra, Wis. (PRWEB) March 04, 2016
Standard Process Inc. awarded $10,000 in scholarships during the National Chiropractic Legislative Conference (NCLC) held February 24-27, 2016, in Washington, D.C. The scholarships were distributed equally among four Student American Chiropractic Association (SACA) members. The 2016 scholarship winners are Courtney Brandenburg of Southern California University of Health Sciences, Amanda Driscoll of National University of Health Sciences, Emily Mickle of New York Chiropractic College, and Trisha Sileo of the University of Bridgeport.
Standard Process, a visionary leader in whole food nutrient solutions, has awarded the SACA scholarships for the past eight years. The company is dedicated to its long-term educational efforts to involve future health care professionals in the study of whole food nutrition.
“Chiropractic and nutrition play a key role in a patient’s ability to transform their health,” said John Nab, chiropractor and Standard Process director of professional development. “The scholarships were presented to help four future doctors who have demonstrated their commitment to providing chiropractic and nutritional care to their patients.”
Thirty-nine applications from 12 different colleges were received, and representatives of Standard Process and the American Chiropractic Association selected the four scholarship winners from the top 11 entries. This year, each scholarship applicant provided a written essay discussing the ways in which the chiropractic profession could support cognitive health in the aging population.
To qualify for a scholarship, in addition to the written essay, students were required to:
- have a current GPA of 2.7 or higher,
- provide a list of their contributions to the chiropractic profession,
- be a SACA member able to attend the NCLC.
