Faces of LIFE – Alpheus Thornton

Alpheus Thornton is a first quarter student from Independence, Oregon, who is studying to become a Doctor of Chiropractic at Life University.

“Both my parents are chiropractors, so I got to grow up around the chiropractic atmosphere and see health from that different perspective,” he shared. “That definitely influenced where I am today.”


#TBT – Dr. Joe Lupo On The Importance of Student Recruitment Events – (2017)

“Without Life University, Chiropractic would morph into medicine. I go back with Life U all the way back to 1975 when it was a brand-new school. When I arrived, it was only six-months- old with a total of 100 students. I had the opportunity to watch the school grow. We were here to change the world when Chiropractic was in dire straits after B.J. Palmer died in 1961 and lost its leadership. Continuing to expand the reach of Chiropractic is why student recruitment events are so important.”
