If you attended The WAVE, Life Chiropractic College West’s annual chiropractic conference held in August, you may have completed your required hours this year. But that’s no reason to skip over the excellent programming our Postgraduate & Continuing Education program has lined up for September.
Life West will host a new-6-hour-format class in Life West’s cadaver lab on Saturday, Sept. 21. Learn about human anatomy from James Kunsman, DC, who practices in the Bay Area and teaches at Life West.
Human Anatomy for Health & Fitness Professionals
• Saturday, Sept. 21, 9 am – 4 pm
• James Kunsman, DC
• 6 CE hours general
The program teaches the biomechanics and anatomy of the human body and how a chiropractic adjustment influences biomechanics as well as neurology. Students will learn about anomalies and conditions that may influence care, training, and health and fitness regimens. They will also get some hands-on time in the cadaver lab. You do not have to be a chiropractor or chiropractic student to register for this class, however the class is limited to 24 participants.
For chiropractors practicing in the Golden State, the California Board of Chiropractic Examiners (CBCE) requires 24 hours of continuing education each year, prior to the last day of your birthday month. While up to 12 of those 24 hours can be taken online, Life West offers CE Saturdays to ensure our alumni and other chiropractors in the state attain the required live hours. Here’s what Life West has lined up for September.
