    Let’s talk about managing the unexpected and staying resilient

    Let’s talk about managing the unexpected and staying resilient

    On this episode of Chiropractical, we look at resilience – first from the perspective of two DC students, and then as a leader, partner, and coworker.  

    (1:30) Leah Dash and Ian Le are in their final years of chiropractic school. They are also Student Ambassadors in the NCMIC Starting Into Practice program. We checked in with them to hear how the pandemic has affected their learning and their plans, and what the profession can do to help them and other students.  

    Leah Dash is in her 8th quarter at UWS. We talk about how she and her classmates are handling everything 2020 has presented, her hopes for the future, and what type of practice she’d like to join when she graduates.   

    Ian Le is a 7th trimester student at National University of Health Sciences in Florida. He shares with us how his professors and classmates are keeping in touch, what he’s doing on his own to expand his knowledge, and a bill that he’s passionate about supporting. 

    (10:18) And, in our Ask NCMIC segment, John Floyd addresses the topic of informed consent in the time of telehealth. 

    (11:49) Sarah Noll Wilson is a researcher, a speaker, and soon-to-be author. A month or so into the pandemic we invited her to speak to everyone at NCMIC to help us understand how and why we are feeling the way we are, and how to navigate everything we’re juggling in this ever-changing period in time. Our employees found so much value we had to invite her to share her knowledge with you on the podcast.

    Let’s talk about patients – finding them and keeping them

    Let’s talk about patients – finding them and keeping them

    Today’s episode is all about patients. Finding them, building relationships with them, and eventually, enlisting them to help grow your practice. 

    (2:35) Joey Coleman has an interesting background, to say the least. After studying international relations in both undergrad and law school, he worked for the Secret Service, the White House and the CIA. He was a criminal defense lawyer, and a professor for an executive MBA program. He ran a division of a promotional products company, then started an ad agency. Five years ago, he became a full time professional speaker. 

    Joey attributes his success to understanding what can be done to convince or persuade or influence people to do the things we'd like them to do. Join us as Joey helps us explore the importance of the first 100 days of a customer experience – and why a customer experience and customer service are completely different things.  

    (21:00) Ask NCMIC with Mike Whitmer and attorney John Floyd about documentation and risk management. 

    (22:55) Dr. Sherry McAllister is a practicing chiropractor, an athlete, and the Executive Vice President of the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, whose mission is to educate the general public about the value of chiropractic in their own lives. Dr. McAllister was studying medical research when she got into a car accident with a dog. Or, rather, an accident caused by a dog. As a result, she went through a period of her life when she was in so much pain she questioned her ability to continue her career. A friend introduced her to chiropractic and not only was she made well, but she changed course.  

    Melissa asks Dr. McAllister about the connection between chiropractic and the 20(21) Olympics, how to build relationships with symbiotic care providers in your community, and Foundation resources available to help you make those connections.
