The Editor’s Desk
Shawn M. Neff, DC, MAS, FACO
Welcome to the June 2017 issue of the Journal of the Academy of Chiropractic Orthopedists. As I finish my first year as the editor in chief I would like to express my gratitude. I want to thank all our readers for supporting the Journal. I hope you are enjoying the journal and are excited for the changes we are making. A thank you also to the Academy board for their trust in the team at the journal. Lastly, I want to thank the editors, peer reviewers, illustrator and the clinician researchers for their hard work and dedication to the field of chiropractic Orthopedics and to JACO.
I want to extend an invitation to our readers to submit your research and case reports. If you have an idea but need help bringing it to fruition, please reach out to us. We have a program to pair you with an experienced researcher to co-author with you. We strive to foster not only a community of consumers of research but also a community of contributors and this program is moving us towards that goal.
I also would like to welcome our new managing editor this issue. Tracey Littrell, DC, DACBR. DACO, CCSP is an associate professor in the Diagnosis and Radiology Department of Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. She is a chiropractic orthopedist and radiologist and has brought her energy and expertise to JACO. She will be a tremendous asset to the journal.
