The month of February brings three two-day continuing education sessions from Life Chiropractic College West. These live sessions will be led by world-class chiropractic lecturers and practitioners, and chiropractors can earn up to 20 CE hours by attending all three courses.
These sessions cover a variety of topics, including the Polyvagal Theory, immunology, and ethics. They’ll be led by Monika Buerger, DC, Dan Murphy, DC, and Stu Hoffman, DC. There is also one more session remaining in January, which will be led by Derrell Blackburn, DC, and focus on patient-centered care.
“I hope that you will continue to keep Life West close to your heart and join us live online or on campus to earn all of your CE hours,” said Life West Director of Postgraduate and Continuing Education Laurie Isenberg. “Revenue from Life West CE supports the next generation of chiropractors, so you get double the benefits: Great education and a thriving profession.”
Isenberg added that chiropractors with birthdays from March through December 2020 are coming up on this year’s CE deadline. Those doctors must earn their CE hours before Thursday, April 22.

Patient-centered chiropractic is designed to explain the significant aspects of delivering quality care, facilitating the healing journey of the patient from start to finish. Each team member in a chiropractic office participates in quality care and delivers the results the patient needs to get from where they are to where they want to be. This seminar helps you approach care from a biopsychosocial model, which considers the full health of the patient.
