New President of FICS Elected

The International Federation of Sports Chiropractic (Fédération Internationale de Chiropratique du Sport – FICS) elected Dr. Peter Garbutt new president, effective May 1, 2016. Dr. Garbutt, who practices in Canberra, Australia, succeeds Dr. Sheila Wilson (Indianapolis, Ind.), who leaves after six years of FICS leadership.

"I am standing on the shoulders of many giants of sports chiropractic who have gone before me in FICS," said Dr. Garbutt. "These include Dr. Sheila Wilson, who has given FICS strong and invaluable leadership through a period of impressive growth of FICS and sports chiropractic during her six years as president."

To learn more about FICS activities and how chiropractic care interfaces with the sports community, read "Beating the Odds: An Interview With Adeline Dumapong-Ancheta," reprinted from a recent issue of FICS News in this issue of DC.
