$19.5 Million Bond Issue Closed

In a move to subsidize its economic development, New York Chiropractic College (NYCC) in conjunction with the Seneca County Industrial Development Agency (IDA) signed a $19.5 million tax-exempt bond issue. The bond issue was underwritten by Smith, Barney, Harris, Upham & Co., and received a Standard & Poor's rating of AA+. The issue was oversubscribed and closed October 17, 1991.

NYCC President Kenneth Padgett characterized the success of the bond issue as symbolic of the support and confidence of the county's financial community.

Alex Kidaloski, executive director of the IDA said: "This enters us into a partnership mutually concerned with improving the economic base of Seneca County, and we are especially pleased to provide the college with the unlimited options and flexibility which this bond issue provides."


Diplomate Program in Applied Chiropractic Sciences

A three-year course of study for DCs leading to certification and diplomate status with the ICA's Council on Applied Chiropractic Sciences (CACS) was kicked off in New York January 11-12. Nearly 100 DCs from six states gathered to inaugurate the post-graduate program.

The program is jointly sponsored by CACS, the New York Chiropractic Council, and Life Chiropractic College West.

Dr. Gerard Clum, president of Life West said the program would provide the practicing DC with "an opportunity to acquire greater skills and competencies in a wide range of evaluative, diagnostic, assessment, rehabilitative and adjustive procedures."

New Thermography Student Membership

The board of directors at the International Thermographic Society (ITS) recently passed a resolution offering a student membership status for those students enrolled in health profession colleges. The membership would encourage students interested in thermographic diagnosis imaging to learn about the appropriateness, necessity, and accuracy of thermographic studies as they are needed for diagnosis or case management. The $35 fee would entitle the student to attend one seminar a year sponsored by the ITS with no further registration fee necessary. For more information contact: R.G.
