"Faith, Focus and Follow-through." - Bill Decken

One of the greatest things about doing the mile high podcast is getting to connect with great people within the chiropractic profession and I am grateful to help you connect to them as well. This podcast episode is very close to my heart as Bill Decken, the current philosophy chair of Sherman College of Chiropractic, was one of my philosophy instructors when I was a student at Sherman. Join us at Mile High August 17-20, 2017 Reserve your seats here.

He has served Chiropractic for 30 years through Sherman College, as well as the Academy of Chiropractic Philosophers (ACP) and the International Research and Philosophy Symposium (IRAPS).

In this episode, we discussed some of the philosophical concepts that both students in the class room as well as doctors in the ACP Program find most challenging to grow through, and comprehend.

We also discussed why philosophy is important relative to the professions future and success in practice. Any time that you can connect with Bill Decken is time well spent. Enjoy this podcast episode. I know you will get a lot out of it. I did while conducting it, and you will even learn why the National League is more congruent to principle than the American League.
