National University of Health Sciences
About Our College
National University of Health Sciences was founded as the "National School of Chiropractic" by John Fitz Allen Howard in 1906 in Davenport, Iowa. In 1908, the school moved to Chicago, because its founder desired a scientifically more rigorous academic culture. Another reason that Howard relocated to the Chicago area was that he received an agreement allowing his students to have access to anatomical study of cadavers at the nearby Cook County Hospital.
