2013 Logan University Graduate Wins The Graduate Package, $12,000 Worth of Cutting-Edge Chiropractic Essentials for the New Practitioner

LAS VEGAS, Nevada—Dr. Mark Elam, a 2013 graduate of Logan University, was selected from a drawing of thousands of fellow recent Chiropractic graduates and students to receive The Graduate Package, $12,000 Worth of Cutting-Edge Chiropractic essentials from four industry leaders: Foot Levelers, Inc., Lloyd Table Company, Activator Methods® International Ltd., and Multi Radiance Medical® LaserLongevity™.  Dr. Elam’s exciting stroke of luck was announced at Parker Seminars Las Vegas’ annual awards ceremony today by Co-founder and CEO of Activator Methods, Dr. Arlan Fuhr.
The Graduate Package provides new Chiropractic graduates the tools needed to get their practices off to a successful start. It includes:
  • Foot Levelers 3D BodyView™
  • Activator Methods Activator V
  • MR4™ Super Pulsed Laser
  • Foot Levelers Tri-Flex® One Unit-Whole Body Rehab
  • Lloyd 400AH Adjusting Bench
  • Foot Levelers Pillo-Pedic® (2)
  • Foot Levelers MyFit® Custom Pillow
Just as adjustment, support, and rehab equipment are the essentials in any practice, continuing education plays an equally important role.  To further benefit new graduates, Activator Methods® and Foot Levelers have included two (2) free seminars as part of the Graduate Package.  

“It’s pretty incredible,” says Dr. Mark Zeigler, Vice President of Education for Foot Levelers, who along with Greenawalt conceived of the Graduate Pack earlier last year.  “Here we’ve got these four leaders—Activator with 47 years in business, Lloyd with 50, Multi Radiance who just celebrated their 20th anniversary, and Foot Levelers with a 61-year legacy—putting aside concern for the ‘bottom line’ to give back to the profession, to support the next generation.” 
Dr. Elam, today’s winner of a free Graduate Pack, is elated. “I'm humbled and honored to receive this gift from these four great companies. It takes some of the fear out of going into the 'real world.' With these four companies offering their guidance, I feel a lot more secure,” he says.

Dr. Elam isn’t the only “winner”. Although the combined cost for these essentials is upward of $12,000, the Graduate Package is available for any new Chiropractor to purchase at just $5,995 (the unprecedented collaborative promotion was first made available in November of 2013).  That’s because the participating companies agreed to donate their state-of-the-art equipment “at cost.” “We wanted to recognize the accomplishment of graduating from Chiropractic college and to also offer these recent graduates the tools [they need to start a practice] cost effectively,” says Kent Greenawalt, Foot Levelers’ Chairman and CEO.  “These young clinicians are the future of our profession. It’s important to support them.”

The four partners also decided to absorb all shipping and packaging costs, saving a new doctor another estimated $200-$500. Financing has been made available for as low as $130 a month.  That means a new doctor can be up and practicing within days of ordering, and for a little more than $4 a day.

PITTSBURGH, Pa., December 3, 2013 – Klean Athlete®, a line NSF Certified for Sport® nutritional supplements for athletes announces today that it is expanding its product offering with the addition of KLEAN OMEGA™, a supplement designed to provide essential omega-3 fatty acids from clean, pure fish oil to support the cardiovascular, neurological and joint health of athletes who want to reach peak performance through optimal health.†
kleanomega2“KLEAN OMEGA™ is an essential addition to the Klean Athlete® line,” says Andrew Halpner, PhD, Head of Klean Athlete R&D. “Klean Omega™ is one of the very few fish oil products on the market that is NSF Certified for Sport®, and is to our knowledge the most potent Triglyceride EPA and DHA sport formula available in a convenient single soft gel.”  Unlike most other fish oils, KLEAN OMEGA™ is also a bovine-free product by using a unique fish oil gelatin soft gel from tilapia.
KLEAN OMEGA™ high-potency fish oil may assist in the normal recovery of inflammation after vigorous exercise, promote healthy joints, and support proper breathing and lung capacity in active athletes.”†
In a study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, researchers found that participants taking fish oil for six weeks increased lean muscle mass and reduced fat mass. In other studies, omega-3 fatty acids have also been shown to promote better oxygen delivery during exercise, help remove lactic acid from the body, and improve reaction time in athletes by supporting the central nervous system.† 
Like the rest of the Klean Athlete® line of products, KLEAN OMEGA™ recently underwent a meticulous testing and verification process to receive the esteemed NSF Certified for Sport® certification, which ensures that it is free of banned substances. Recognized by major sports organizations including the NFL, MLB, NHL and PGA, the NSF Certified for Sport® program was developed in response to the concerns of athletes, coaches, team owners and others about finding banned substances in sports nutrition products. 
KLEAN OMEGA™ joins the existing eight Klean Athlete® supplements including: Klean Multivitamin™, Klean Antioxidants™, Klean Cognitive™, Klean Probiotic™, Klean Isolate™, Klean Electrolytes™ , Klean Endurance™ and Klean-D™.
Douglas Laboratories® maintains outstanding quality control from start-to-finish for Klean Athlete® ingredients and products. They are one of the few supplement providers who control manufacturing, packaging and distribution, thus ensuring that the highest quality product reaches every athlete.
