Spreading the Light of Life Across the World
Brittany Harris, DC Student
How many times have you told a friend at home about your experiences at Life University? Have you referred someone from your alma mater to Life to study Chiropractic? Would you like to practice your public speaking skills while advancing Life University? Would you like to help spread chiropractic across the world?
Well, there is a new student organization on campus with a simple purpose: to spread knowledge of Life University and chiropractic across the globe. This organization, Student LIFEforce, is a student centered group based on LIFEforce 1000.
LIFEforce 1000 is a group of 1,000 chiropractors who believe a tribe of committed people can make the difference in helping Life University spread principled chiropractic and lasting purpose around the world. They will not stop until there is worldwide access to chiropractic and a chiropractic education to anyone wanting it. Why are they doing this? Because there are only 68,000 chiropractors in the United States, (compared to 1.1 million medical doctors.) Worldwide it’s even more dramatic. The European Union has 700 million people, but there are less than 5,000 DCs. China is home to 1.3 billion people, yet only about 20 chiropractors.
Students who become part of the organization have an enormous opportunity to make an impact on prospective students. As a participant in the organization, a student will attend a Student Recruitment Event (SRE) training presented by the staff of Enrollment Management. This gives students the skills and knowledge to host SRE’s at colleges, high schools, and other venues to recruit students for enrollment at our institution.
Michael Schmidt, a sixth quarter student, performed his first SRE over the break at his alma mater, Binghamton University. He describes his experience as extremely fulfilling, “Being able to serve as a representative of what a lot of pre-health students were looking for but unable to find.” Traveling, meeting prospective students, and exclusive networking opportunities with LIFEforce 1000 doctors are just a few of the many reasons to join the Student LIFEforce.
The club meets Monday evenings at 6 pm during weeks 5,7, and 9 this quarter in room B140 . Week 3 we will have a special presentation by Dr Riekeman October 17th in room B112. For more information, please contact Student LIFEforce President, Andrea Smith firstname.lastname@example.org.
