A Question of Ethics
Recently, after I had finished teaching a class on ethics, I  read a blog post on the AAAOM
website regarding "gainful employment." The published information made me reflect on what I had just discussed with the students — the acupuncturists' ethical responsibility to the patient, the profession and the public.

Active Military Receive Discount at Sherman College Chiropractic Health Center

Thanks to the initiative of chiropractic student and military wife Melanie Pelletier, active members of the U.S. Air Force, Army, Marines, Navy and National Guard now receive discounted services at the Sherman College Chiropractic Health Center.

"I've always thought you should try to give back to the people who are taking care of you," said Pelletier, who hopes to serve as a chiropractor for the military following graduation from Sherman. "These people have been my family for three years now, taking care of me throughout college." Her husband, Josh, is a crew chief with the Air National Guard; he has been stationed in Afghanistan since April and is scheduled to return home in August.

Active military members will pay just $10 per visit at the Chiropractic Health Center when they show their military ID. The college's on-campus health center (where senior students intern under the close supervision of licensed doctors of chiropractic) provides quality and affordable chiropractic care to the local community through nearly 20,000 patient visits per year.

The facility is a teaching clinic for chiropractic students who are in their final stage of internship prior to graduation from the doctor of chiropractic program. The teaching environment, coordinated by licensed doctors of chiropractic, allows interns to practice chiropractic under close supervision and constant consultation.

"We see offering a discount for active military as an opportunity to serve and honor those who give so much to our country," said Dean of Clinics Keith Henry, DC. "I think it's especially fitting at Sherman College, as service to others is a major component of our mission."
