Sept. 28, Dallas, Tx – Parker Seminars held its second largest seminar in Dallas, Texas where more than 1,500 chiropractors, chiropractic assistants, and chiropractic students from around the world attended.
Parker Seminars has a decades-long tradition of excellence in chiropractic education and information, presenting topics from chiropractic technique and business practices to health, wellness, philosophy, and success principles.
As a way to honor Dr. Jim Parker, founder of Parker Seminars, the seminar opened with a discussion of Parker Principles which have produced many successful practices for years. Dr. Fabrizio Mancini, president of Parker College of Chiropractic and Parker Seminars, shared one of his favorite principles: Develop a compassion to serve that is greater than the compulsion to survive. "Life is about service, not survival," said Dr. Mancini. "The primary reason that people choose chiropractic is to serve others."
Dr. Mancini encouraged the audience to get involved. He asked them to become members of their state associations as well as other chiropractic associations. He believes that If it is to be, it is up to me is the most critical Parker Principle in the profession today.
Dr. Mancini asked the audience what they are going to do to advance the profession. He advised them to begin with themselves and their practice and then to work their way up to impacting their community, state, nation, and finally the world.
"This is the decade where we can shine and truly be recognized as the primary health care providers around the world," said Dr. Gilles Lamarche, vice president of Parker Seminars and development at Parker College.
Dr. Tracy Wilson, Dr. Michael Hall, Dr. Stephen LaFay, and Dr. Jeffrey Cottingame provided advice and personal tips they have learned throughout their years in practice. Additional keynote speakers included Dr. Patrick Gentempo, Dr. James Chestnut, Dr. Tracy Wilson, Dr. Mary Warren, Lisa Speaks, Brenda Frederiksen, Dr. Nicole Lederman, and Dr. Rick Wren.
