Christopher Nizer is the son of Robert and Diana Nizer of East Liverpool, and the grandson of Wallace Stevens of Detroit, Cornell Nizer of East Liverpool, the late M. Thelma Stevens Perkins and the late William R. Nizer Sr.
As Christopher entered middle school and high school, he was very active in organizations, holding positions as class president for four years, captain of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes for two years, vice president of the National Honor Society, a member of the African-American Club, and a member of the track and field team.
After graduation from high school in 2002, Nizer attended Miami University of Ohio, where he studied exercise physiology and graduated in 2006. He was also named Miami University's homecoming king.
In pursuit of his dream to become a Doctor of Chiropractic, Christopher moved to Atlanta, Ga., and studied at Life University, graduating in 2011. He was then offered an opportunity of a lifetime to work for the Schubel Chiropractic Centers in Lima, Peru.
Nizer now runs his own chiropractic office there, as well as helping to expand chiropractic medicine into other South American countries.
Christopher visits East Liverpool as often as possible, visiting his home church, Second Baptist Church, and spending time with his family.
This is the fourth of a series in which The Review will spotlight men and women with ties to the area during the February celebration of Black History Month.
