Student Ambassador Spotlight: Joe Messina
“When I moved from Connecticut with my wife so she could attend Sherman, I really didn’t know what chiropractic was. Once she started the program, I learned more and more about the philosophy and why chiropractors do what they do, and I knew this is what was I called to do in order to help others be the best that they can be and to make a difference.”
