For Immediate Release
Keiser University’s College of Chiropractic Medicine Thanks Donors for Support
West Palm Beach, Fla., November 2019 – Keiser University’s College of Chiropractic Medicine (KUCCM) thanks Dr. James M. Cox for his $100,000 matching funds campaign, and associate Dr. Kurt Olding and his wife, Jacqueline, for their $4000 honorarium.
Created to foster chiropractic research, Dr. Cox recently announced a $100,000 matching funds campaign after entering into a formal agreement with Keiser University. As part of the agreement, Dr. Cox will match dollar-for-dollar any donation to the Cox® Fund up to $100,000 a year. The proceeds will provide the KUCCM’s Research Department the opportunity to engage in clinical and experimental research studies into conditions such as spinal stenosis for which chiropractic care shows promise in non-surgical management.
Olding joined colleague Dr. Ralph Cruise, KUCCM’s Attending Clinician in October when the university kicked-off its weekend Cox® Technic Lumbar Spine Certification Course Part II. He and his wife, Jacqueline, look forward to donating the honorarium from a later Ohio State Chiropractic Association presentation to the Cox® Fund.
For decades, Dr. Cox has personally and professionally donated to chiropractic research financially through his textbook royalties, speaking honoraria, and more. He has, on several occasions, also sought matching funds to complete pilot projects that lead to larger research grants and recognition in the spinal literature for the benefits of chiropractic care for spine and spine-related pain.
Dr. Olding also hopes to get funds from colleagues tripling the $4000 donation as he invites others to support the Cox® Fund Matching Campaign at KUCCM.
With experienced leaders including Dr. Michael Wiles, Associate Dean of Academic Affairs, Dr. Maruti Gudavalli who instructs and leads research efforts, and Dr. Ralph Kruse who instructs and serves as Attending Clinician, the Doctor of Chiropractic program at Keiser University is a rigorous professional program consisting of ten semesters of study, which are completed over 40 months. It combines traditional lectures with small group learning, weekly conferences and seminars, laboratory and experiential sessions, and clinical training opportunities at a number of sites. All coursework includes case-based relevancy for chiropractic practice as a portal-of-entry profession dedicated to excellence in spine care.

Mrs. Percy and Mr. Williams believed in me. They were more than instructors, they tried to get to know you as a person and tried to understand your goals so they could push you towards them. And Mrs. Crawford from student services helped me find a job before I even graduated. She was dedicated to my overall success.
Going to Keiser University was one of the greatest experiences in my life. All of my deans, professors, and staff made me feel that I was a part of something very special, and I am. I would recommend for anyone to get their education at Keiser University.
The two instructors that have impacted my life are Mr. Williams and Mrs. Percy. Both of them believed in my ability to become a great graphic designer, regardless of how I felt about my skills. I appreciate their motivation to get me to where I am today.
Beyond the curriculum of the courses, the lessons the instructors have taught me have paid dividends in my real work experiences. How to respond to criticisms, project and time management, interview skills, the list goes on and on. At the end of the day, they not only showed me how to design, but they taught me how to be a professional.
If not for my education at Keiser I probably would not be where I am today, in both life and career. It is because of going to Keiser and the instructors I had that I joined a club started by Mr. Williams, The Lakeland Shooters Photography Group, which allowed me to venture into an amazing and very creative field that I use to enhance all aspects of my life.
The Design program at Keiser University was filled with real world learning and hands on instruction… Based on the portfolio I created while a student at Keiser University, I landed a job in Graphic Design for a major online retailer immediately after graduation.
The year and a half I spent in the program better prepared me for attaining a job in the field…As a hands-on learner, the project-centered teaching was perfect for me.
Keiser University has given me the opportunity to embrace a career change… It has opened the door for a timely graduation and quick return to the work force…
Without the education I received at Keiser University, I would not be where I am today!
I not only received an excellent education but also encouragement and training that built my self-confidence every day.
I realize the amount of knowledge I gained and feel that the educational experiences have developed me in to a person who can move higher up the career ladder.
Keiser University’s MBA program has renewed my mind, changed the way I think, and given me a new sense of purpose. The professors transformed my attitude and behavior, gave me the self-confidence I was lacking, and restored my energy.
It has been great attending and graduating from Keiser University. Because of the small class sizes, I was able to build good relationships with classmates and professors. The PA professors care very much about the progress and success of the students and have been great advisors every step of the way through the program.
Attending Keiser University and getting my degree was the best decision I have ever made. The small class sizes and personalized attention helped me get my degree quickly. The hands-on experience and the education landed me a job at a neighboring law firm.
I chose Keiser because it had everything—small classes, caring professors, hands-on learning, and counselors that are really there for you. I feel like I’m part of a family here, not just a number.
After being denied for several promotions at my current employer, I decided that I needed to further my education. Since graduating from Keiser with my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, I have been promoted and I am able to obtain positions that weren’t available to me before.
Keiser helped change my life by getting my education at the right school! I had been going to another school before, I dropped out because I felt that I was not getting enough information. When I found out about Keiser, I was pleased because the instructors were great.
My decision to attend Keiser University has been one of the best decisions I’ve made. I chose to enroll in the Information Technology program… The one-class-a-month pace helped incredibly with my self-discipline.
The BA for Business Administration at Keiser has to be one of the best in the nation. Keiser takes the basics that are taught at the Associates level and uses them to strengthen your skills and knowledge.
I found that Keiser University’s Nuclear Medicine program of advanced studies and small class size was a perfect fit. I never came across a faculty member who wasn’t truly interested.
