Life Chiropractic College West has recently been named a winner of the Golden Heart Award from Oklahaven, a non-profit chiropractic center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, that offers care to children.
This is the 6th consecutive year that the award has been given to Life West, a college in San Francisco’s East Bay in Hayward, California. The 2018 award totals Life West’s 9th time receiving the honor.
The Golden Heart Award is chosen by the Oklahaven Board of Directors after its annual “Have-A-Heart” campaign each February, which raises awareness about health treatments for children and seeks funding for the center’s mission.
Life West shares this year’s Golden Heart Award with Family First Chiropractic, home to Dr. Jonas Marry and his staff, in McMurray, Pennsylvania. It was also awarded to Parker College in Dallas, Texas, Oklahaven said in a news release.
In a letter to Life West, Oklahaven Executive Director Frank San Antonio wrote, “We appreciate the teamwork and generosity of everyone whose hard work and dedication have helped to make the 2018 “Have-A-Heart” campaign a great success. By uniting our consciousness, we have raised the awareness of the power of Chiropractic for healing the children.”
Jackie Biron, Director of Student Life at Life West, said this has been one of her projects for the past 10 years. The award is given to the chiropractic college and clinic that raise the most funds for Oklahaven in support of its mission, to educate people about the power of chiropractic and to help the most profoundly hurt children among us, without the use of pharmaceuticals.

She believes that a natural, drug-free way of life is key to the return of wellness and full function, using chiropractic care to allow the recuperative powers of the body to restore good health. Dr. Doscher is the president and chief executive officer of Oklahaven, which is now celebrating 56 years of treating children with chiropractic care.
