How a chiropractic miracle sparked the 50-year career of Dr. Gerry Clum

Past Life West President Dr. Gerry Clum and current Life West President Dr. Ron Oberstein sit down to explore his 50-year journey in chiropractic and the miracle through a chiropractic adjustment that started it all. They reflect on the founding of Life Chiropractic College and Life West, how the profession has changed over his lifetime, and what makes a truly great chiropractor.

After enrolling at Palmer College as an 18-year-old fresh out of high school in 1970, Dr. Gerry Clum built a relationship with Dr. Sid Williams which ultimately led to his 30-year tenure as the first president of Life Chiropractic College West. He has served on numerous boards including the ACC, CCE, ICA, F4CP, and WFC, and continues to be involved in chiropractic education and professional organizations.
