Logan Students at Games

Luke Shackelford at The World Games 2022

I am ecstatic to be joining the sports chiropractic delegation at The World Games. This is an opportunity for me to integrate my passion for chiropractic access and advancement at the level of elite sports competition.

I especially look forward to working alongside international sports chiropractors and gaining hands-on experience in chiropractic research. Having worked on research projects previously, I am excited to see both the immediate and lasting effects of chiropractic care at the World Games.

My excitement for this opportunity also translates into gratitude for the role that Logan University has played in my education and supporting me overall.

I would also like to thank the FICS community for selecting me as one of four international student representatives. I am sure this will be a foundational experience as I build my career and strive for excellence in patient-centered care and sports chiropractic.
