Dr. Maithy Ta, a 2019 graduate of the Cleveland University-Kansas City (CUKC) College of Chiropractic, was honored with a special President’s Award by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) during its ACA Engage 2023 conference. Ta was one of four ACA members recognized by ACA President, Dr. Michele Maiers, during the group’s House of Delegates meeting. The accolade is given to those who demonstrate outstanding service to the ACA and to the chiropractic profession.
Ta was also a key player in other business handled by the House of Delegates as they voted to fill two open seats on the association’s six-member Board of Governors. Ta of Kansas City, Mo., was elected to fill one of the available seats. Her term of service will run from 2023-26. She joins Dr. Leo Bronston of Onalaska, Wis., as one of two Clevelanders currently sitting on the board. Bronston has been a board member since 2019.
In other news, the Student American Chiropractic Association (SACA) also met to elect new leadership during the conference. CUKC student Nadya Bordewick was named national vice legislative chair for the student group.
Held Jan. 25-28 in Washington, D.C., ACA Engage is an annual event that offers educational, networking, and leadership-development opportunities for those in the chiropractic profession. Hundreds of chiropractors, chiropractic assistants, and chiropractic students from across the nation attend each year.
In addition to meetings and other events, those in attendance have the opportunity to meet with members of Congress to advance pro-chiropractic legislation. Other highlights include distinguished speakers, panel discussions, and the opportunity to earn continuing education credits. The next ACA Engage will be held Jan. 24-27, 2024.
