Relived of Duties

Lambda Chi Sorority is a social and educational club at NUHS designed for female students in both the chiropractic and naturopathic programs. Once a week, we meet after class to learn and practice adjustments with Dr. Terry Elder, one of the professors of our technique classes and a national instructor for Motion Palpation Institute. Toward the end of the trimester, the club brings in various speakers from the community and university, educating us on different topics such as sports medicine, pediatric adjusting, opening up your own practice, or even just the current state of the chiropractic profession. For the past year, I have been the president of Lambda Chi and have had an array of responsibilities each trimester. I have finally reached the bittersweet end of a very rewarding leadership position, but I am excited to pass on my duties to the next group of officers!

The current group of officers finished off our term with a big bang of events! We started out our week by hosting Dr. Joseph Stiefel, the president of National University of Health Sciences, as our speaker. He brought our members up to speed on the state of the university, current renovations taking place on our campus, an assessment of our school's performance of board scores, and an overview of the direction that the chiropractic profession is moving. On Wednesday night, the outgoing and incoming sorority officers met at Kona Grill for our officer transition dinner, where we passed on our binders of instructions, gave suggestions and words of advice, and enjoyed a nice meal together.

Our 3rd Annual Mr. NUHS Competition was held on Thursday in the gymnasium. The event showcased eight terrific male students who competed in categories of clinic attire, beach attire, and a talent/lip sync performance. Our four judges consisted of both faculty/staff members and last year's reigning Mr. NUHS, Taronte. Based on the judges' scores and the popular vote of audience participation, we crowned Tom Blum as the 2014-2015 Mr. NUHS! Tom performed a terrific rendition of "Let It Go" from the hit Disney movie Frozen, and the gymnasium was filled with laughter and confetti as the song went on. This event served as both a fun school-wide function open to all students as well as a great fund raiser for Lambda Chi.

Friday night was an opportunity for all of our members to relax and unwind at our end-of-the-trimester event held at Brickhouse Tavern and Tap. The girls enjoyed appetizers, drinks, and a chance to sit back and socialize with each other. This was also the last big event held by the current club officers, so it served as an unofficial transition back to being simply a member of the club, rather than a leader. I am excited to say that I'm finally relieved of my duties as president of Lambda Chi Sorority!
