The battle of the bids was on at A.T. Still University’s Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine on Thursday, Jan. 31.

The Student Government Association held its annual auction in the Centennial Commons, where faculty, staff, and students engaged in a bidding war for both live and silent auction items. Featured items included everything from gift baskets and artwork to St. Louis Cardinals tickets and dinner with ATSU President Craig Phelps, DO, ’84.

All proceeds benefit a wide range of student needs including academic programs, professional advancement, social events, organizational support, and community service projects. Preliminary totals from the auction came in at about $3,400.

During the month of February, ATSU is proud to honor American Heart Month, a nationally-recognized observance.

On February 1, ATSU will sport red to show support for National Wear Red Day. By wearing red, ATSU will join the thousands of women who are choosing to reduce their personal risk for heart disease.

Please join us as we honor those who have fought or are fighting cardiovascular disease this February by donating to ATSU’s fundraising page:  http://www.goredforwomen.org/wearredday//donate/advocatedonationform.html?kwoAdvocateId=5NXOQB5.  Our goal is to raise $500, and we hope you will help us reach that goal!

Additionally, keep tabs from February 1 – 28 on facts and advice in keeping your heart in tip-top shape on ATSU’s official Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/atstilluniversity?ref=ts&fref=ts.


A.T. Still University’s Audiology and the Physical Therapy departments are seeking volunteers to participate in an upcoming research study. Volunteers can be University students, employees, family members and/or persons from the community. All volunteers must meet the following criteria:

  • Healthy individuals aged 20-55 years
  • No known or suspected history of vestibular (balance) dysfunction or active complaints of dizziness
  • Weigh less than 250lbs (110kg)

Participants may also be excluded if they have any ophthalmologic, neurologic, or psychological disorders and/or any other health conditions that could potentially cause temporary distress to the participant or affect data collection.

The study will consist of two phases. The first phase will require some basic vestibular (balance) evaluation, and the second phase will require some motor imagery exercises. Participants should expect to dedicate approximately 60 minutes for phase one evaluations and 60 minutes for phase two evaluations.

Both phases will take place at the ATSU audiology clinic (AFA Balance and Hearing Institute) which is located at 4838 East Baseline Road, Suite #126, Mesa, Ariz.

If interested in participating in the study, please email Mia Pozzanghera.


Mesa Educates UPartnering with the City of Mesa and other universities in the city, A.T. Still University has joined the Mesa Educates U initiative.

Mesa Educates U is designed to help position Mesa as a destination for higher education in Arizona and the Southwest. In addition to the Mesa Educates U website, the partnership is creating an App for mobile devices, and conducting a “Discover U Weekend” March 8-9, 2013.

The Discover U Weekend is an opportunity for ATSU and other universities to showcase programs to potential students in non-traditional recruitment settings, including an evening block party in downtown Mesa and at a Chicago Cubs spring training game at Hohokam Stadium.

Mesa U - Raising the bar on higher education



Faculty, staff, students, and their families are invited to participate in ATSU’s first Relay for Life event being held May 4 -5 on our Mesa campus.

Teams will camp out on the front lawn of the main building, and members of each team will take turns walking – relaying for life! Participants will also remember people lost to cancer, and honor people who have fought or are fighting cancer during the Luminaria Ceremony on Saturday evening.

Food, games, and entertainment will start on Saturday and continue through Sunday.

To donate, start a team or join a team – visit ATSU’s site: relayforlife.org/atstillu. Please contact Bridget Spooner with questions.

We hope you’ll consider helping us make this a huge success!

Relay for Life is an organized, overnight community fundraising walk for the American Cancer Society (ACS). All proceeds raised will benefit cancer research, treatment and other critical services provided by ACS.
