New York Chiropractic College Homecoming 2013
July 19-21, 2013
Homecoming Weekend in July saw our campus abuzz with alumni, faculty, friends and students as they gathered for extraordinary lectures and fun activities. Friendships were renewed and new connections were made.
Dr. Anthony Palumbo, an adjunct professor in NYCC's Postgrad Department, got the ball rolling Friday afternoon with his lecture on general assessment. Drs. Sandra Hartwell (’96) and Michael Zumpano (’06) conducted cadaver dissection and anatomy reviews to an enthusiastic audience.
Friday capped off with a festive dinner at Ventosa Vineyards. Alumni, faculty, students, and friends of the College dressed to the nines for an evening of fine dining and great conversation. Our President, Dr. Frank J. Nicchi (’78), extended a warm welcome to all in attendance. Chiropractic Council President Dr. Robert M. Browne and New York State Chiropractic Association President Dr. Louis Lupinacci presented Dr. Nicchi with a proclamation from the State Assembly of New York congratulating the chiropractic profession for 50 years of licensure. Dr. Frank Lizzio ('80) was presented with the Distinguished Alumni Recognition Award by Dr. Nicchi at the event.
Other notables on hand included Standard Process President Charlie DuBois, NYCC Chancellor and Past-President Dr. Kenneth W. Padgett, NYCC Board of Trustees Chair Dr. John Rosa ('92), Trustees Dr. Frank Lizzio ('80) and Dr. James Powell, and former Board Chair, Dr. Lewis Bazakos ('78).
Saturday morning began with a student-alumni leadership breakfast. Respected doctors conducted a round robin with students to discuss leadership and goal setting. Following breakfast, Dr. Teresa Hoban ('97) lectured about improving patient compliance through better leadership. Then it was off to the various classrooms for a wide selection of offerings. NCMIC's Dr. Randy Ferrance spoke about pediatrics, the treatment of adolescents, and recognizing child abuse and neglect. Dr. Heather Heck ('08) instructed her audience on the use of whole-food nutrition in multidisciplinary practices. Dr. David Graber ('85) demonstrated the art of upper-extremity adjusting; and Dr. Dennis Homack ('97) made the case for custom-made stabilizing orthotics. In addition, an alumni panel was moderated by Dr. Thomas Ventimiglia ('80); and Dr. Erqiang Li, of China Acupuncture, Inc., in Tampa, Fla., presented on Chinese acupuncture needling techniques.
On Saturday evening, NYCC held its first-ever, highly attended, clambake (as evidenced by piles of empty clam shells) – overall, a huge success.
Rounding out the weekend on Sunday, Dr. Lisa Bloom ('90) provided a lively lecture on philosophy holism and wellness, NCMIC's Anna Allen gave an informative lecture on reporting abuse, and Dr. Graber demonstrated lower-extremity adjusting.
