Whole food supplement manufacturer Standard Process has announced the award of its 2013 Dr. Michael Dobbins Excellence in Nutritional Education Scholarship worth $10,000 to James Evans, a Life Chiropractic College West student.
Wisconsin-based Standard Process established its Excellence in Nutritional Education Award for practitioners in 2009 and announced a $100,000 scholarship program would be provided over a 10-year period to each award recipient’s alma mater.
"It's important to have students learn the value of nutrition and the advantages of whole food supplements while they're in school,” said John Nab, D.C., director of professional development at Standard Process. “Standard Process is proud to offer scholarship opportunities for chiropractic students interested in integrating whole food supplements into their future practice.”
Evans expressed his gratitude for the scholarship and to Standard Process. “Being capable of incorporating nutrition into my future chiropractic wellness paradigm will make a huge difference in my capacity to serve society in creating healthier lives,” he said.
The Scholarship is open to Life West students with at least three quarters remaining before graduation. Evans has 6 quarters left before earning his degree. In addition to the essay, scholarship applicants need to:
• Have a cumulative grade point average of 2.9 or higher
• Provide a list of their contributions to the profession, the college, and the community
• Provide a letter of recommendation from a professor at the school
