Attendees included some of the most respected members of the chiropractic community, from a professional and educational perspective. The group spent two days focusing on ideas and methods aimed at growing the profession. Foot Levelers CEO Kent S. Greenawalt participated in the event, sharing his ideas, strategies, and practices on advancing chiropractic.

Foot Levelers has traditionally been one of the strongest supporters of the chiropractic profession, often holding and sponsoring workshops and seminars designed to help both patient and doctor, which Foot Levelers Vice President of Education Dr. Mark Zeigler noted, “Many of the ideas and practices Foot Levelers uses to promote and help grow the chiropractic profession comes directly from what we learn from those with day-to-day chiropractic interaction, professional, clinically, and educationally. Without their input, much of what we do would be without aim and direction.”
The Foot Levelers workshop allowed both the attendees and members of the Foot Levelers team to learn from each other and present new and innovative ideas. Zeigler continued, “Hosting so many leaders in the chiropractic profession was an honor. Working along side so many outstanding practitioners and educators to advance chiropractic has long been a top priority for Foot Levelers.”
