Women’s Health Symposium Speaker: Jay Greenstein, DC, CKTP, CGFI

September 4, 2019 -- Rapidly evolving technologies, from mobile health and wearables to telehealth and big data, are coming together synchronously, creating a perfect storm of massive disruption. The result of these technologies? Empowered patients and improved patient outcomes.

 

In his presentation at the Women’s Health Symposium on September 28 at 4 p.m., “Chiropractic Exponentially: Building the Practice and Profession of the Future,” Dr. Greenstein explores how DCs can advance the chiropractic profession through application and innovation. He will address block chain technology, artificial intelligence, clinical algorithm technology and cloud computing as well as help attendees understand their impact on health care and chiropractic.

 

“With incredible technological advancement, Doctors of Chiropractic must be educated, prepared and determined to use these technologies to hack a broken health care system with many promises yet few deliverables on improving quality, lowering cost and creating remarkable patient experiences,” Dr. Greenstein said. “The chiropractic profession cannot leave just the medical and technology communities to lead the way. We must be part of the conversation.”

 

Dr. Greenstein is the CEO of the Kaizo Health Companies – Kaizo Health, a multi-location, multi-disciplinary, evidenced-based practice in the Washington DC Metro region; KaizoX, a state-of-the-art health and fitness facility; the Kaizo Clinical Research Institute, a 501-c3 dedicated to high quality, clinical research; Kaizenovate® Advisors, which coaches businesses on Six Sigma, human capital management and leadership development; and Kaizenovate® Tech, which builds technology solutions to solve the biggest issues in healthcare for providers and patients. 

 

Dr. Greenstein was named Chiropractor of the Year in 2007 and 2010 for the Maryland Chiropractic Association and Chiropractor of the Year in 2010 for the Virginia Chiropractic Association. In 2012, Dr. Greenstein was recognized by SmartCEO Magazine for winning its 2012 Technology Implementer Award.

Women’s Health Symposium Speaker: Arlan Fuhr, DC

Aug. 21, 2019 -- Dr. Arlan Fuhr (’61), chairman and co-founder of Activator Methods International, will be making a special presentation at the Women’s Health Symposium on Saturday, Sept 28.  

From 1 to 2 p.m., Dr. Fuhr will be addressing treatment options for the aging spine, specifically addressing a research study that finds the Activator a safe method for adjusting patients with osteoporosis.

Osteoporosis is a disease in which the density and quality of bone are reduced. As bones become more porous and fragile, the risk of fracture is greatly increased.

Not only did the study determine that it was safe, but it showed that there was regrowth in the osteoporotic area of the bone being adjusted,” he said. “This is important because of the amount of osteoporosis in women over the age of 65.”

The Activator Method is the world’s most widely used adjusting technique that is employed by more than 70 percent of all chiropractors and taught in nearly every chiropractic college in the world. 

Dr. Fuhr, who established the National Institute of Chiropractic Research, a nonprofit research foundation, holds 13 domestic patents, 47 worldwide trademarks and more than 100 copyrighted works.

Logan to Host First Women’s Health Symposium

August 12, 2019 -- The American Chiropractic Association’s Women’s Council on Women’s Health will be hosting its first Symposium, September 28-29 on Logan’s campus. The event, “Caring for the Female Patient Throughout Her Physiological Journey,” will feature nationally known women’s health experts on topics such as nutrition and heart disease, brain health, posture, pelvic floor dysfunction, breastfeeding dysfunction and more.

Logan faculty member and ACA Women’s Council President Kristina Petrocco-Napuli, DC, MS, FICC, FACC said she’s excited to bring to light topics that are not regularly discussed in the chiropractic profession. She said her goal was to secure high caliber speakers from around the country who are experts in women’s health, and she hopes that those attending will leave with new strategies for the female patient population. While the event is focused on female health, it is open to all.

Logan Grad Dr. Holly Tucker Appointed to WFC Council

April 5, 2019 -- Holly Tucker, DC, MPH, CHES, FASA, a chiropractor dedicated to making an impact in the health care system, was recently appointed to the World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) Council. 

Dr. Tucker traveled to Berlin, Germany, in March for the biennial Congress meeting, where she spent eight days with other council members attending meetings under the WFC’s “EPIC” theme (evidence-based, people-centered, interprofessional and collaborative). 

“Every discussion was so compelling. There are 13 Council members, from all over the globe, which allowed each conversation to have a unique perspective,” Dr. Tucker said. “Chiropractic care is so diverse across different parts of the world, so hearing positions and opinions on a variety of situations served as a great learning experience.”

In addition, the council members discussed the role of WFC in advancing the profession forward, while supporting and empowering chiropractors around the world. The Council worked behind the scenes by drafting new bylaws, strategic plan implementation and listened to special programs and presenters.

After the Council meeting, representatives from every country joined them to attend the General Assembly. WFC members gave reports about the current state of chiropractic care in their region. Congress, the educational portion, in conjunction with the European Chiropractors’ Union (ECU) Convention, consisted of continuing education keynote speeches, breakout sessions and research presentations.  

“This year, the WFC focused the event much more on research-based presentations,” Dr. Tucker explained. “This event is becoming the premier place to present chiropractic research, and a place for greater collaboration to translate this knowledge into practice. I think this will involve the clinical community on a much greater level than ever before.”

Dr. Tucker is very passionate about engaging with other members of the chiropractic community. She is involved in almost a dozen different organizations and being an active member of the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) is what led her to this prestigious WFC appointment.

She plans to further educate ACA and Student American Chiropractic Association (SACA) members about the WFC by developing informational content and utilizing speaking opportunities. 

“I want to get students more involved by showing them all they can do and how they can use their knowledge to really make a difference in the world of the chiropractic profession after they graduate,” said Dr. Tucker.
