Dr. Jaime Browning Honored as Upper Cervical Researcher of the Year

Sherman’s own Associate Professor and Technique Department Chair Dr. Jaime Browning, ’09, was recently honored by the ICA Council on Upper Cervical Care as the Upper Cervical Researcher of the Year. The Upper Cervical Council is one of the specialty councils of the International Chiropractors Association (ICA).

This year, Dr. Browning presented the Research Methods module for the 2019 Diplomate in Craniocervical Junction Procedures (DCCJP), which provided a 12-hour bird’s eye view of the components to competent research. She realized that the chiropractic field needs to understand how to find and recognize quality research before they can create quality research; thus, she created this module that takes candidates from consumer to producer. Dr. Browning also serves as the research chair of the Upper Cervical Council. Read more on the blog .

Sponsoring a brick or paver is the perfect way to lift students' spirits and inspire future chiropractors by placing positive messages literally at their foundation.
