Kent Greenawalt, Chairman and CEO of Foot Levelers, presented Dr. Kevin Wong with the Educator of the Year Award and the late Dr. Kirk Lee with the Golden Achievement of Chiropractic Service Award at the Parker Seminar in Las Vegas. Foot Levelers created these awards for a handful of individuals, who have made significant impacts to better the chiropractic profession.

FL groupThe Golden Achievement of Chiropractic Service Award was given in honor of Dr. Lee, who passed away August 9th, 2012. He was a member of the Palmer College of Chiropractic Post Graduate Faculty and Parker College of Chiropractic Post Graduate Faculty. Dr. Lee lectured nationwide on sports injuries and the adolescent athlete, was a Foot Levelers seminar speaker for more than 15 years, and practiced in Albion, Mich.

“Dr. Lee will be remembered for more than just his work in the chiropractic profession, which is significant, but also for his positivity that lit up every room he entered,” commented Greenawalt. “Dr. Lee is more than deserving of this award because he didn’t just do what was expected of him, instead he exceeded expectations by always doing more than required. He knew that being a chiropractor was more than being a healer, and used his profession to help others not only with his hands but with his words and actions.”

Dr. Kevin Wong of Orinda, Calif., is a 1996 graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic West. He is an expert on foot analysis, walking and standing postures and orthotics. He discusses spinal and extremity adjusting at speaking engagements. He has spoken on behalf of Foot Levelers to hundreds of audiences all over the world the last 7 years.

“Dr. Wong has been tireless in his efforts to educate both patients and doctors alike,” said Greenawalt. “He is passionate about everything he does and passes this energy to all that he encounters.”

"Teaching in Chiropractic has been my passion for 16 years and it will be so until I leave this earth,” said Dr. Wong. “This award validates all of the effort I have put forth and hopefully the help I have provided to others. It has been my honor and pleasure to have taught so many fellow chiropractors and look forward to the future.”

DeutchmanWorld Chiropractic Alliance CEO Terry A. Rondberg, DC announced last month that the organization's Board of Directors has voted unanimously to appoint Gary Deutchman, DC, as one of three NGO (non-governmental organization) representatives to the United Nations' Department of Public Information.

"I'm very excited to have Dr. Deutchman assume this important position representing the chiropractic profession on the world stage," said Rhomberg. "Gary is a true humanitarian, and has served the public through his chiropractic practice as well as working with; the Hale House in NYC, a non-profit program founded by Mother Hale, the Gay Man’s Health Crisis in New York City, a program dedicated to improving awareness as well as the lives of those at high risk for AIDS. He is particularly interested in the humanitarian outreach possible afforded by this position. Currently Dr. Deutchman visits Haiti several times per year to offer chiropractic care, as well as fund raising for food, clothing and shelter.

In 1998, the Department of Public Information at the UN conferred NGO status to the WCA. Christopher Kent, DC, was the group's first NGO represented and went on to serve as chairman of the NGO Health Committee.  More recently, Ken Vinton, DC and Tim Merrick filled the position.

"My goal is to use this position to serve mankind," said Deutchman. "Those that have come before me deserve great respect, and I hope to exceed everyone’s expectation."

Some of Dr. Deutchman’s duties will be to attend periodic briefings at the UN headquarters in New York and meeting with representatives from other NGOs from around the world. He will share information about chiropractic and the role chiropractors can play in addressing health concerns in developing nations as well as in first-world countries. Currently Dr. Deutchman is working to increase awareness of Chiropractic in the Middle East as well as Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

"I’m humbled each day I get the opportunity to share chiropractic throughout the world," Deutchman said. "The U.N. is a place where people from all walks of life can come together for the betterment of man, Chiropractic should be represented in this type of arena," he added.

Now in his 27th year of private practice, Gary is a board-certified Chiropractor with multiple offices in New York, Illinois, Colorado, Georgia, Arizona, Washington State, Florida, California, Texas, and North Carolina.

The eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) – which range from halving extreme poverty to halting the spread of HIV/AIDS and providing universal primary education, all by the target date of 2015 – form a blueprint agreed to by all the world’s countries and all the world’s leading development institutions. They have galvanized unprecedented efforts to meet the needs of the world’s poorest. "Chiropractors need to contribute within the framework of the MDGs," explained Deutchman. "We want to touch the populations of the world who desperately need for what we can provide, I intend to do just that.”

Web-based Series Focuses on Practice Headspace and Business Expansion

PHOENIX, Ariz., January 1, 2013 – Continuing its strategy of positioning chiropractors to deliver enhanced patient care, Neuromechanical Innovations (NMI) launched the Tuesday Think Tank™ on January 1, 2013. The weekly webinar series succinctly covers essential topics for chiropractic practice growth and expansion with consistency and congruency to successful business values and principles.

“We have to be respectful of Doctor’s time,” said Christopher Colloca, D.C., CEO of Neuromechanical Innovations and host of the broadcast. “Clinicians are busy with patients, paperwork, and running their office. So we limit our time in the Think Tank to under an hour giving small bites of practical information and insights that they can use each week consistently to help their practice grow and reach more people that need our care.” Congruent with NMI’s culture of innovation, emphasizing quality and measurement by statistics, practical approaches to clinical and business management are the focus of the discussions in the weekly webinars.

The Think Tank is named after NMI’s Boardroom at its corporate headquarters in Chandler, Arizona. “It’s where the magic happens in our office,” said Dr. Colloca. “In the Think Tank we create our vision, our strategic plan, and our action steps to make it all happen. We wanted to bring our Think Tank into a virtual world where we could help develop the vision for practices using our technology. The Tuesday Think Tank™ was conceptualized that way.”

The Tuesday Think Tank™ hour presents a variety of topics weekly including practice management tactics, business expansion strategies, staff development ideas, clinical and technique tips, new research in the industry, and marketing approaches in a fast-paced, no-nonsense format. Special guests will appear throughout the year to share their unique perspectives in the Think Tank as well.

Unique to the Tuesday Think Tank™ is NMI’s commitment to providing the actual practice tools to the attendees free of charge. The inaugural Tuesday Think Tank™ guests received notes from the presentation, a comprehensive practice analysis and statistics worksheet, and a 2013 strategic marketing calendar as practical tools to implement the week’s teachings into their practice.

The Tuesday Think Tank™ is held live on Tuesdays at 1:30 pm EST and is free to join. Recorded sessions can be viewed on demand in archived sessions accessible online. “I’ve become a fan of TED Talks whose motto reads, ‘Riveting talks by remarkable people, free to the world.’ I’ve learned that some of the world’s most influential people give away their ideas and share their concepts with others today for free. What better way to give back than hosting a free online Think Tank to the profession that has provided me with so much,” said Colloca. Registration for the Tuesday Think Tank™ can be found online at
