Marietta, Georgia, November 5, 2020 – Life University launched Founder’s Month of Giving for Research this past September, a 30-day campaign to raise resources and awareness for chiropractic research.

In recognition of this initiative, the Cobb County Board of Commissioners proclaimed the month of September as Life University’s Founder’s Month of Giving in support of chiropractic research and presented the proclamation to Life University’s Vice President of University Advancement Dr. Gilles LaMarche and Senior Development Officer Angela Getter.

During the month-long giving campaign, one corporation gave with extraordinary generosity to the cause. The Joint, Corp. had a total gift of $49,475.00. “Life University sincerely appreciates the benevolence and support from The Joint. It is evident that The Joint’s leadership and franchises throughout the country are committed to research for the profession, and we are honored they gave so graciously,” said Dr. LaMarche.

Mr. Peter D. Holt, president and CEO of The Joint Corp stated: “We at The Joint believe our most important priorities are championing the growth of Chiropractic, as well as actively participating in leadership roles within the chiropractic community. We are dedicated to advancing opportunities to grow the profession and support peers who share our passion and commitment to Chiropractic. The strong response from The Joint community in donating funds for Life University’s research demonstrates our commitment to partner in furthering the chiropractic movement.”

The Center for Chiropractic Research (CCR) at Life University will continue to conduct research of significance on the neurological aspects of chiropractic care. The CCR has designed their lab and research agenda with chiropractic colleagues and patients in mind.

The Founder’s Month of Giving for Research campaign will continue each September. To learn more about the CCR, its research and how you can donate, visit
