The scholarship which I was awared in 2023, has been an incredible opportunity to learn further especially as there are not many options to further our studies out there.  It is a great challenge and I have loved learning new techniques and principles from Logan University.  I strongly recommend the MSSR program to any Chiropractor who wishes to further their knowledge and involvement in sports environments.
