Welcome to Chiropractic '06
Comments from the participants in our First International Chiropractic Symposium:
“I was very excited to see such vibrant attendance at this congress and to be a part of the many opportunities Chiropractic has to expand around the world.”
Dr. Fabrizio Mancini, President of Parker College of Chiropractic
and Parker Seminars
“My overall experience in Panama was good, I am planning to go next year.”
Dr. Alfred Garbutt, USA
“Thanks so much for my being an invited speaker. I was very impressed with how organized the conference was and how accommodating and kind everyone was. There was definitely a family atmosphere there and I felt included, which was so very nice.”
Dr. Charles Blum, USA
“My favorite thing about Chiropractic ’06 was the opportunity to meet other DC's and non DC's from other parts of the world. To offer excerpts of the different programs was an excellent idea because you get a chance to see if you want to take the full course or not.”
Dr. Carlos Ayres, Peru
“It was a pleasure to meet such wonderful people spreading the good news about chiropractic. The topics of the meeting were interesting and the hospitality was second to none. I only wish I had more than three days to stay.”
Dr. David Tyggum, Guatemala
“My favorite thing about Chiropractic ’06 was the variety of leading edge information presented and available. I would definitely recommend this show to my friends!”
Dr. Terri Hamilton, USA
“Thanks for the first class seminar; you and your team should be commended!”
Dr. Tom Preston, Life & Chiropractic Success Coach, USA
“Quiero agradecerles todas sus atenciones y quiero que sepan que la pase muy bien y aprendí mucho. Un saludo desde Guatemala.
(I want to thank you for all your attention and would like you to know that I had a great time and learned a lot. Greetings from Guatemala).”
Victor Cifuentes, Guatemala
“A very special thank you! Your family's hospitality was way over the top. A memorable experience. Panama City is defiantly on my list of potential second homes.
I will be learning Spanish. We are currently expanding our southeastern hemisphere sales and looking forward to Chiropractic ’07 in Panama. Expanding to all the natural professions is a smart plan.”
Dr. Frank J. King Jr., USA
“Please accept my sincere thanks for all you have done for chiropractic, in general…and for me and my particular interest in chiropractic (Manipulation under Anesthesia), specifically.
The work you and your “team” accomplished to try to get permission for us to do MUA in Panama was historical. The profession needs to know what you were able to accomplish, because it has a direct influence on how chiropractic is perceived in Central America.”
Dr. Robert Gordon, USA
“My favorite things about Chiropractic ’06 were the teacher & teaching, the personal attention, the staff of TAC, the banquet and the confetti which I didn’t have to pick up.”
Dr. Dennis Woggon, USA
“What a fabulous experience everyone created for this 1st Panama Symposium. All the hospitality, wonderful smiles, and dedicated under workings of a diligent staff kept a flow that was both a comfortable rhythm and yet a progressive impulse that allowed all events to move in a coordinated way.
For me personally, I did not want to miss the opportunities to listen to the other lecturers since all were valuable and respectable colleagues, so I missed some chances to escape and 'see' the country. But also, this moment to have the influential representatives of Chiropractic there to bring the current contentions, politics and world views was a highlight. Having a 'worldwide' collection of chiropractors in one setting, as you set this one up is a bold step, and one that should not be missed by the members of all our societies and associations.”
Dr. Stephanie Leonard, USA
“In my 34 years of practice and 22 years of teaching, I have been exposed to literally hundreds of seminars and conventions around the world. With Chiropractic ’06, I can say, with no reservations whatsoever, that this was one of the most educational, inspirational and exciting conferences I have ever attended or been a part of. Don’t miss Chiropractic ’07; it is an experience you will never forget!”
Dr. George LeBeau, USA
“I would like to personally thank you for inviting Palmer College to participate in the Chiropractic '06 symposium, held in Panama. February 12-14th. Dr. Kern felt bad about not being able to attend, especially when he found out how much I enjoyed the program and what a success it was!
I also want to thank you for the great evening we had having dinner at the Panama Canal. It was truly an experience that I will never forget and I want to compliment you on the outstanding job you did and how well the program was run.
I hope Palmer College of Chiropractic will have an opportunity to participate in any future programs that you may have. In the short time I spent with you and your family, I gained a great deal of respect for your family and what you do for chiropractic. When reading your journal now, I have a whole new appreciation for all the hard work you put forth for our profession. For that, I thank you.”
Dr. Mickey Burt, Palmer College of Chiropractic, USA
“I just wanted to drop a quick note to once again say how much my wife and I enjoyed TAC's 1st Annual Chiropractic International Symposium. From the moment we first stepped off the plane and were greeted by your courteous staff and directed to the hotel, until the time we departed, we experienced first class accommodations and a wonderful seminar. The speakers were passionate and knowledgeable, and there was a great variety to choose from to personally expand your own practice growth. The little extras you made available, such as the Gala Dinner, highlighted the overall experience. It was a terrific introduction to Panama and one we hope to experience again next year at your second symposium. I'm sure, with you and your team, it will be bigger and better. Once again, thanks for everything and best wishes for your future success.”
Dr. Lynn C. Bayly, USA
“I just returned from Panama for the Chiropractic '06, put on by The American Chiropractor (TAC) and, I have to tell you, it was one of the most amazing events I have been to. Honestly, I did not know what to expect. It was a technique seminar, so I was not sure how I would fit in; but, I was asked to speak and I never turn down an opportunity to do so.
There are a few things that stand out to me about the event. The first being how accommodating the people from TAC were, not only of the speakers, but the attendees. I have been around the seminar circuit for about a decade and have never seen a group of people care more about their attendees than they did. They gave so much and were always available when you needed anything.
The second thing that stands out was how amazing the overall theme of the event was. Before going, I really thought I was going to see a fight among the techniques. We all know how that crowd is; they are right and everyone else is wrong. But, when I got there, the overall feeling was to rejoice in our differences and let's make things happen. You all know my heart and how I want to pull the profession together and get things done. I felt right at home with this group and feel like there were relationships made that will definitely cause change in our profession. I am encouraging you to consider going to Chiropractic ’07 next year in February. I am sure you will hear more about it in the coming weeks, but you will definitely want to be a part of this.”
Bharon Hoag, USA
“Just thought I’d drop you a note and say “thank you” for the invitation to attend the Panama Seminar. You and your staff did an absolutely “first-class” job. It was one of the best seminars I’ve ever attended. I have bragged to at least 100 D.C.'s about how good it was.
You are to be congratulated. Thanks again…”
Dr. Pete Fernandez
As a time investment, a financial investment, and an academic experience, I found the The American Chiropractor magazine’s Chiropractic '06 to be one of the peak experiences and most worthwhile of my professional career. The American Chiropractor has made and is making a major contribution to the enhanced quality in the education of the chiropractic profession.
The program set-up was excellent. 15-minute presentations and then the opportunity for the seminarians to spend an hour with the programs they were interested in was and is brilliant.
The staff of The American Chiropractor, which includes everyone I came in contact with prior to my arrival as well as during my entire stay in Panama, was over the top. You should be very proud.
Dr. Alan Creed, USA
Thanks for the great seminar. We enjoyed the Causeway, Gamboa, the Canal, shopping centers (Multiplaza) and Bocas del Toro. We didn't get to go to Colon... Maybe next year! Thanks again!
