Palmer Homecoming 2009, Aug. 13-15, Features a Stellar Line-up of Speakers, Up to 23 CE Credits and "Extraordinary Stories from the Field"
Palmer College of Chiropractic will host Homecoming 2009 on its Davenport, Iowa, campus Aug. 13-15. The program features a slate of new continuing education speakers as well as familiar faces leading sessions, along with Palmer's traditional social and networking events. As always, Homecoming includes a vendor expo featuring the latest chiropractic products and services. Up to 23 Continuing Education credits are available for chiropractors attending this year's event, depending on the state in which they practice and that state's licensure requirements. There also is a track for chiropractic staff and a Destination Success track for students.
Homecoming organizers are looking for "Extraordinary Stories from the Field" to be showcased during the Thursday evening general session on Aug. 13. Palmer alumni who have an amazing story about a patient (or patients) to share are encouraged to submit their stories online by going to www.palmer.edu/homecoming.aspx and clicking on the "Extraordinary Stories from the Field submission form." The College Events staff is looking for five doctors to feature, and in order to facilitate selection, stories should be submitted as soon as possible. For more information, contact Heather Starr at firstname.lastname@example.org or (866) 592-3861.
Some event highlights include the alumni luncheon on Friday, the 25-Year Reunion Dinner on Thursday, the 50-Year Reunion Brunch on Friday, plus class reunions for the graduating classes of 1939, 1944, 1949, 1954, 1959, 1964, 1969, 1974, 1979, 1984, 1989, 1994, 1999 and 2004. There will be a reception for members of these classes on Friday evening at the FIGGE Art Museum in downtown Davenport.

Palmer's Davenport Homecoming also features the traditional Fellows Reception, President's Club Reception and the Saturday Night Festival, which includes a fabulous buffet dinner, fireworks and entertainment from Chicago band 7th Heaven, all on the campus plaza at the top of Brady Street Hill.
