During 1993, Drs. Michael Haneline and Rodney Alward resigned to pursue other interests and to spend more time with their families. MPI would like to thank both of these dedicated doctors for their years of quality teaching and dedication to the paradigm shift.
MPI would like to introduce Mark King, DC, of Cincinnati, Ohio. Dr. King graduated cum laude from Life Chiropractic College in 1986, and along with his associates has established two extremely busy clinics. Dr. King has been involved in motion palpation since his college days and is now joining the MPI teaching faculty.
Dr. King will be teaching in the following cities during 1994:
Marietta, February 5-6 -- Spine 1
Houston, February 12-13 -- Spine 2
Boston, March 12-13 -- Spine 1
Philadelphia, July 9-10 -- Spine 2
Davenport, September 24-25 with Dr. Innes -- Full Spine
Chicago, October 15-16 -- Spine 2
Dr. King brings to MPI a wealth of clinical expertise and enthusiasm that will most assuredly be passed on to the Drs. and students attending his 1994 seminars.
Teaching for the "Real World"
I am very anxious and excited about the opportunity that teaching with the Motion Palpation Institute presents. I have attended many MPI seminars over the years, but I have also attended a wide range of other seminars. This allows me to share a diverse postgraduate educational background with the students and practicing doctors.
I know from past experience that it is always exciting to go back into the office on Monday morning with information that you can use and apply to patients that you have been unable to help in the past. I have found one of the most effective practice management tools has been to improve myself clinically. I think the reason for this is twofold: I am able to help patients with their physical condition, and my enthusiasm and excitement for my expanded knowledge is appreciated by my patients.
As a practicing clinician and not strictly an academic, I feel my teaching should apply to the "real world." I am glad to be part of the Motion Palpation Institute's team and I am looking forward to teaching and learning in 1994.
Mark A. King, DC
