As part of the Homecoming 2012 weekend festivities, the Kansas Chiropractic Association named Dr. Steven J. Gould ’89 the KCA “Doctor of the Year.”
“I was surprised to be nominated.” Gould said, “But is was also quite an honor to be on the ballot with a longstanding mentor and friend, Dr. Terry Webb.”
Another of Gould’s mentors, Dr. Raymond Conley ’72, presented Gould with the award.
“It was very special receiving the award from Dr. Conley, whom I consider my ‘radiology Dad’,” Gould said. “Going through the radiology residency at Cleveland was a lot of work and involved a lot of time. Dr. Conley always took care of us and he has been a great role model to follow with high integrity.”
Gould, one of only two chiropractic radiologists in Kansas, earned his certification from the American Chiropractic Board of Radiology in 1993 and practices at Gould Chiropractic in Cheney, Kan. He was named KCA “Young Doctor of the Year” in 1995. Gould has been supporting the College in a variety of ways since graduation.
“I appreciated my CCC education, both the chiropractic degree and the radiology residency,” he said. “I was able to do well on national boards and I passed radiology boards the first time. I have and will continue to recommend Cleveland to students interested in a chiropractic degree. As a field practitioner, that is the greatest thing you can do to help the school and the profession.”
Everyone at the College congratulates Dr. Gould and looks forward to his contributions in the future!
