Dr. Timothy Meng, a 1966 graduate of Cleveland Chiropractic College-Kansas City (CCC-KC), and a member of its Board of Trustees, was recently honored with the Herbert Ross Reaver Award by the International Chiropractors Association (ICA). The ICA Board voted unanimously to name Meng the recipient of the honor based on his more than 30 years of service to the ICA, and for nearly six decades in the profession. The award was announced by the board during the 96th Annual ICA meeting, held April 7-9 at Sherman College of Chiropractic in Spartanburg, S.C.
“I was pleased to be recognized by the ICA,” Meng said. “My years of service have always been about improving the profession, and I hope that by getting involved beyond just my practice, I have helped to make chiropractic better not only for the patients, but also for my peers. It has been an honor to serve with so many people in the ICA over the years who shared that same vision for the profession.”
In 1982, Meng joined the ICA Board as secretary, and continued to serve the group in a variety of roles over the last 30 years, most recently as chairman of the Governance Committee. In addition to his long-time commitment to ICA, he has also served for many years as a trustee for his alma mater in various capacities, including time as chairman of the Cleveland College Foundation board.
Meng is part of a multigenerational chiropractic family, as his father and son also graduated from CCC-KC. He continues to practice in the Independence, Mo. office opened by his father in 1953.
