Dr Ryan is proud of the Foundation’s in-depth grant approval process and feels this process is adding some of the most clinically relevant and best quality science to the pool for our profession. He is looking forward to leading our Foundation’s capable team and creating more research, faster, for our profession. We as practitioners see many things in practice that the science has yet to define or explain, and therefor research is currency when in discussion with Board and Government. The greater depth and breadth of understanding of the Vertebral Subluxation, the better our profession will be.
