I just returned from a chiropractic humanitarian trip to Ouanaminthe, Haiti and Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. The trip was organized by Mission Life International founded by Dr. Peter Morgan and Dr. Gary Deutchman of New York City.
On the way home from the trip I asked a few of the students to share their thoughts on the experience.
EC 9 – Social Media in Chiropractic
Better late than never. This is another After School special with the most active chiropractic students on social media. We talk about why you should be on social media, all the big players, including YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and blogging. I stir up controversy over the Germ Theory of Disease, and we share our ‘Tic Picks including a brand new social network specifically for chiropractors.
Excuse the poor connection on my end, and enjoy!
