LIKE IT WAS MEANT TO BE


How Steven Saro, D.C., gives back to the place that gave him a sense of purpose and direction.


STEVEN SARO, D.C. (Main, ’88) doesn’t believe in coincidences. The Massachusetts native and first-generation college student at the


University of Miami was on track to become a surgeon when he was sidelined with a lower back injury while playing baseball. A visit to the team chiropractor not only relieved Dr. Saro of his pain, but also an ailment he’d been suffering from for much longer. “I’d dealt with debilitating migraines since I was 13 years old. The team chiropractor started working on my neck, and it didn’t occur to me until sometime later that I stopped having migraines. It was the longest I’d ever gone without one.” The work of the team chiropractor gave Dr. Saro a new sense of purpose and direction: to serve through chiropractic care. He applied and was accepted to several chiropractic colleges and osteopathic medicine programs, but “all roads pointed to Palmer.” It didn’t take him long to figure out that the path he chose was right. “Palmer revealed itself through its rigorous coursework. I knew it was where I was meant to be. As students, you don’t realize that the


“As students, you don’t realize that the bricks being laid at Palmer will help you build the foundation of your career.”

bricks being laid at Palmer will help you build the foundation of your career.” Throughout his 30 years in practice, Dr.


Saro has graciously given back to the place he credits for much of his success. “I would not be where I am, the doctor I am, or the person I am today without Palmer College,” says Dr. Saro. Shortly after his graduation, Dr. Saro began making annual gifts of $1,000 to student scholarships. His most recent commitment of $50,000 will support capital projects as part of the College’s Daring & Driven campaign. To recognize Dr. Saro, Palmer College will name one of the group study rooms in the new David D. Palmer Learning Commons in his honor. “Walk into any hospital, and you’ll find donor names on buildings and in every space. It means those people are connected to that place, and I want others to know how grateful I am for everything I have—and for Palmer College.”


LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON


This year, Dr. Saro celebrated 30 years in practice. He opened Saro Chiropractic Health Center in Dracut, Massachusetts, a practice he’s proud to say he built from the ground up with long days and a lot of commitment. Now, Dr. Saro works alongside two other Palmer graduates, including his son, Harrison, who graduated in February 2020 from Palmer’s main campus in Davenport.
