The American Chiropractic Association Elects New President, Board Members, and NWHSU’s Michele Maiers as Vice President.
The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) elected Robert C. Jones, DC, of Albuquerque, N.M., as its new president last week in Washington, D.C., during ACA’s annual meeting, the National Chiropractic Leadership Conference (NCLC).
Dr. Jones was elected president by his peers on ACA’s Board of Governors (BOG), which consists of five chiropractors and one public member. He replaces outgoing president, N. Ray Tuck, Jr., DC, of Christiansburg, Va. The BOG also elected Michele Maiers, DC, MPH, PhD, of Minneapolis, Minn., as ACA’s vice president.
Dr. Maiers was elected to the BOG in 2016. She is a professor at Northwestern Health Sciences University (NWHSU) in Bloomington, Minn. She also serves as NWHSU executive director of research and innovation and is a principal at the school’s Center for Healthcare Innovation and Policy. She has been integral to ACA’s work in respect to clinical guidelines review and the opioid epidemic.
