I received a birthday card this week from Life Chiropractic College West, in Hayward California. It’s not my birthday yet, but the school was just sending out their sincere wishes for good health and happiness on my birthday. It’s also a chance for them to send me information about chiropractic continuing education programs going on in the California area, during the month of October.

I’ve done continuing education through a number of different chiropractic colleges over the past several years. I must say that I love Life West, although this year I’ll be doing the Cleveland Chiropractic College coming home event in early October. I’ll be up in the Bay and Oakland area towards the end of October, but it won’t be for chiropractic education. I am going up north to check out the Raiders versus Kansas City game the weekend that there is a SPA festival going on at the college campus. Maybe I’ll stop by on Saturday and get a few new photos, but it’s more likely I’ll be in San Francisco filling up my belly.

What I liked best about the birthday card was something I saw on the back page. It reads… Lasting Purpose: to give, to love, to serve. Someone had to decide to put that on the back of the birthday cards the school sends out. I like the message. Life West is keeping the D. E. spirit alive.

There are lots of life West sponsored continuing education programs going on regularly. With the card I received listings for events in Sacramento, South Lake Tahoe, El Segundo, Yuba city, Mill Valley, Pasadena, Berkeley, Hayward, San Diego, Oakland, and Arcadia. Chiropractors can check the planet chiropractic seminar pages for life West sponsored events and you can contact the life West continuing education program directly at 800-788-4476, extension 4508.
