Dual-Major Chiropractic and HAPI Student Aims to Provide a New Outlook to Healthcare
Fawod Majidi (D.C. ’22, M.S. ’22) was 14 when his father was treated with chiropractic care for a work-related injury. He still remembers the doctor and believes it was the effective patient communication and focused care that led to a successful recovery. That's why Majidi chose to pursue chiropractic — to heal other people by providing the same type of care.
He chose Northeast College because of its reputation for academic excellence and its evidence-informed curriculum. As a member of the Afghan and Muslim community, Majidi said chiropractic care is not a very common health practice in those populations. "Being able to act as a role model within my community and offer the people I care about a different outlook to healthcare is something I hope to achieve," Majidi said. "There is so much potential, and our profession continues to grow every day. Being able to expose this to a new demographic and educate the community is exciting to be a part of."
Majidi, also enrolled in the Master of Science in Human Anatomy and Physiology Instruction program, has been a student tutor, president of the Students for Social Diversity & Awareness club, class representative for the Nov. 2022 D.C. class, and a supervisor at the College's Standard Process Health and Fitness Center. After graduation, he hopes to have many successful years in practice, possibly in his home country of Canada, before ultimately becoming a professor in anatomy and physiology. "There is no better gift than giving back," Majidi said.
I am eager to become a doctor of chiropractic and ultimately pursue a role as a professor in anatomy and physiology. There is no better gift than giving back.
