Dr. Jack Donovan discusses service above self and lessons learned from a 70-year career

Dr. Jack Donovan comes from a prolific chiropractic family, and he resisted the idea of becoming a chiropractor himself…until that first philosophy class, and then it all clicked. In his 70-year career, he’s known and learned from many of chiropractic’s heroes and legends, and as a founding partner of a Chiropractic College, is a pillar himself. Listen as he and Dr. Ron Oberstein walk through chiropractic history, discussing what it was like to listen to BJ Palmer, know Mabel Palmer as a family friend, and rub shoulders with Sid Williams, Bill Harris and Jim Parker and others, who were instrumental in establishing the landscape of chiropractic that we know today.
