Paying It Forward

ApfelblatDr. Amanda Apfelblat (’00) is a LIFE alumna dedicated to giving back — both to her alma mater and her community. Apfelblat is a member of the Life University President’s Circle and Realizing the Vision Campaign, supporting LIFE through generous financial contributions since graduating.

She runs a practice in Garden City, Michigan, where she focuses on pediatrics. In fact, she has a Diplomate in Pediatrics from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. While serving her community, Apfelblat also sits on the board of both the Michigan Chiropractic Pediatric Association, of which she is a founding member, and the Michigan Association of Chiropractors. She credits her time at LIFE to everything she has accomplished in her professional life. “I feel that I owe so much to LIFE,” Apfelblat says. “Everything that I have today is because I had the best education that allowed me to have a very successful practice.”

On why she prioritizes giving back to LIFE, Apfelblat brings up the University’s guiding principle of Lasting Purpose: To Give, To Do, To Love, To Serve—Out of a Sense of Abundance, saying, “I think that I’ve carried Lasting Purpose out in my life since graduating,” she adds. “I just feel that it is very important to give back. LIFE produces the best adjusters in the world, and I think it is imperative to pay it forward so that legacy continues.”

Apfelblat also knows the importance of every LIFE alumni giving back to the school in some way. “LIFE gave us all the ability and the opportunity to go out into the world and be very successful,” she explains. “And that’s just one of many reasons why we should give back.”
