Gasparilla 2019

The last weeks were busy ones for the clubs on campus! As president of Sports Council I had a few meetings, Club Lunch – where we speak to the Tri 1’s about each club on campus and our first meeting. I ran this week’s meeting and presented on Ankle Sprains, drawing a little bit from my athletic training background. The presentation seemed to be well received and I used a few minutes at the end of the meeting to teach the lower Tri students some basic orthopedic exams for the ankle and even demonstrated how to tape an ankle for sports practices.

Winter Break 2018

Hello everyone! After a nice couple of weeks off, it’s time to get back to school and begin Tri 5 and Phase II of the DC program down here in Florida! I am excited to get into the clinical sciences and take my acupuncture course as well. It will be a busy start to the trimester, as most of my classmates and I are taking Part 1 of our National Board Exams after the first week of classes, so we are all busy with final preparations for that.

10th Annual Turkey Bowl

As the holidays approach, we down here at the NUHS – Florida campus enjoyed one of our biggest annual events the TURKEY BOWL. This year marked the 10th Annual Turkey Bowl, so everyone knew it was going to be a big event. Every year since the start of the program here in Florida, Dr. Stiefel, the president of NUHS, comes to town and holds a flag football tournament, the University caters food (this year was some awesome Greek food), and provides sponsored giveaways from Biofreeze.

Halloween Festivities

These last two weeks have been a nice break from the business of this trimester. After my conference we finished up the first round of exams for the tri so this week was all about rest, relaxation, and enjoying a little free time. My family came out for a short weekend visit. It was great to have them–my parents haven’t visited since February, so they enjoyed the warm Florida weather for a few days.

2018 Thomas Hyde Research Poster Competition

I spent this past weekend in Minneapolis, Minn. attending the American Chiropractic Association Sports Council annual symposium. This is an event that brings together chiropractors from across the country with a common interest in working with athletes. There were many chiropractors there who work on the international level, providing care at Olympic games and countless other World events. There were also chiropractors who work with professional sports teams in the MLB, NFL, and NHL, and even others who are team doctors for different colleges across the nation.

What happened to September?

Does anyone else feel like just yesterday it was the middle of July? This trimester has by far been the busiest for me and it is flying by. Suddenly we’re already four weeks in and its all been a blur of new information and adjustments. We move at a pretty quick pace through our curriculum here in the chiropractic program, so I have been spending quite a bit of time the last few weeks making sure I am not falling behind on the material. That being said, this weekend I allowed myself some time to enjoy myself before being hit with the first round of exams.

FCA Convention: The National!

Hello everyone, I’m back!! It is the start of my fourth trimester at the NUHS – Florida campus. I am eager to get back into a routine with classes and activities here, but I will certainly miss the free time I had over break. I spent the majority of my break visiting my family in Albuquerque – eating ALL of the local green chile I could before coming back to Florida. Before I went home, however, I went to Orlando with some classmates to attend the Florida Chiropractic Association’s (FCA) annual conference.

It's the Final Countdown

It’s finals week!! Yay? Although it means the end of the trimester with four practical exams last week and eight lecture exams in the next four days it’s hard to get excited for break just yet. So far, my grades have been pretty good which takes a little bit of stress for these upcoming written exams, which has been a relief.

Of my classes, finishing my anatomy lab with Dr. Pearlstein is most bittersweet. Not only will I no longer have an excuse to wear my scrubs, but I will miss being able to dive inside human anatomy--it was such an incredible experience. I learned so much about our bodies by finding anomalies, separating structures, removing cancerous masses, and so much more! I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to learn anatomy this way and will remember it throughout my career.
