Past "Linda Atkinson" Scholarship Winner

"WDC and the Re-entry program was the mentorship I had always been looking for in chiropractic when I needed it the most. They stood behind me providing the base of support I needed so that I could lift myself up at a really challenging time in my life. I am honored to be the first recipient of the Linda Elwart Atkinson Memorial Scholarship. I cannot wait to find ways in which to pay it forward."
