Edward Feinberg, D.C., DACBSP, a 1983 graduate of the West Campus and 28-year faculty member, was honored as the 2011 American Chiropractic Association (ACA) Sports Chiropractor of the Year at the ACA Sports Council Symposium, held July 29-31 in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Presented annually at each ACA Sports Council Symposium since 1987, the Sports Chiropractor of the Year award recognizes “outstanding service to the profession and accomplishment in sports chiropractic.” Dr. Feinberg’s selection marks the first time that the award has been presented to a college faculty member.

“This is a major honor, which I will cherish forever,” said Dr. Feinberg, who is a professor at Palmer’s West Campus, where he has served as faculty adviser of the Sports Council since its founding in 1994. “It’s hard for me to express how honored I feel. Nothing makes me prouder than bragging about the accomplishments of our Sports Council graduates, who have gone on to accomplish great achievements in the field of sports chiropractic. I thank all of the Sports Council officers of the past 17 years, and share this award with them.”

“What a wonderful legacy Dr. Feinberg has created for himself, for Palmer’s West Campus and for the sports chiropractors of today and tomorrow,” added Richard Robinson, D.C., West ’96, who was the founding president of the inagural Sports Council and helped present the award to Dr. Feinberg. “The term ‘doctor’ means teacher, and a teacher enables the success and dreams of others. Dr. Feinberg does this exceptionally on a daily basis. I’m so proud of my colleague and friend.”

Added West Campus President William Meeker, D.C., M.P.H.: “I can think of no other person who lives and breathes sports chiropractic like our own Dr. Ed Feinberg; he has had a tremendous impact and he richly deserves this award.”

“Dr. Feinberg’s leadership is palpable in the quality of his students and the sharing of his skills, knowledge and ideas to benefit the chiropractic profession without recompense,” said Dr. Guillermo Bermudez, ACA Sports Council president. “His work has inspired graduates who have gone on to distinction around the globe. Dr. Feinberg’s leadership has propelled the chiropractic profession ahead by light years, and his work has and will continue to leave a legacy.”

Many of Dr. Feinberg’s former student Sports Council officers have continued to remain active with the ACA Sports Council organization following graduation. One has graduated from serving as a Sports Council officer to now being a peer and colleague: Heather (Cline) Bowyer, D.C., West ’06, who now serves as faculty adviser to the Sports Council on the Florida Campus, and also chairs the ACA Sports Council Committee on Ethics and Credentials.

“Dr. Feinberg’s love and dedication to sports chiropractic has opened doors for all of the students he has mentored along the way,” Dr. Bowyer said. “Under his supervision, the West Campus Sports Council has become one of the largest and most respected student sports councils across the country. And his legacy continues to grow in the Florida Campus Sports Council. It’s rare that one person can reach so many lives. He has served our profession selflessly, and I am very happy that he has received the recognition he has long deserved.”
