October is Chiropractic Health Month

UWS celebrates and promotes awareness

October is National Chiropractic Health Month, and as part of this national push to promote awareness of and celebrate the profession, University of Western States is participating in a number of ways.

  • Throughout the month of October, UWS will join thousands of chiropractic physicians and institutions nationwide in promoting #PainFreeNation on social media, a campaign to draw attention to the public health crisis caused by chronic pain and the overuse of prescription painkillers.
  • On October 16, the university will be promoting awareness of World Spine Day. This year’s event is aimed at raising awareness of “your back at work.” It will focus on the importance of education related to good spinal health and prevention of injuries in the workplace. On this day, people are encouraged to take a #spineselfie and post it to social media with #worldspineday.
  • The weekend of October 16-18, UWS is hosting the 2015 UWS Homecoming and NW Symposium. The theme for this year’s NW Symposium is “A community cultivating healthy lifestyles.” The focus of the event is integrated health care and will explore the latest research and provide dynamic speakers including Dr. Michael Gonzalez, Dr. David Seaman, Dr. Cheryl Hawk and more. Other events that weekend include the Homecoming BBQ on Friday, October 16, a reception honoring UWS faculty and a homecoming dinner on October 17. Learn more and buy tickets!
