Faces of LIFE- Olivia Porpora

Going into her collegiate years, Olivia Porpora’s initial plan was to continue on to medical school. She studied Exercise Science at the University of Delaware, and while completing her bachelor’s degree, Porpora decided that medical school was not the path she wanted to take because it didn’t align with her personal beliefs on what health care should look like. She had been seeing a chiropractor and “always thought it was a really cool profession.”

Faces of LIFE- Luis Perez

As an only child from a Chicago suburb, Luis Perez was no stranger to the world of sports and, therefore, injuries and chiropractic care. He pulled a hamstring running track and field. He first visited a physical therapist but did not find much relief in that route, so his mom suggested a chiropractor. The chiropractor asked him about his college experience and future plans, and Perez was leaning toward physical therapy as a career path.

My 1st Quarter, Slice of LIFE

My First Quarter- Joseph Trovato

I think that what made my first quarter at Life U memorable was meeting a lot of upper quarter students who are very influential and introducing me to different techniques and different clubs and seminars.
