Vice Chancellor for Research and Health Policy Christine Goertz, D.C., Ph.D., garnered another prestigious award in August when she received the 2013 Lincoln Research Prize for Chiropractic and Biomechanics at the Florida Chiropractic Association (FCA) National Convention in Orlando, Fla. At $20,000, the Lincoln Research Prize is the largest research prize in the chiropractic profession.

Among the outstanding nominees for the prize, Dr. Goertz was selected for demonstrating excellence in clinical research completed during the years 2010-2012 that most significantly contributed to the body of knowledge and also directly impacted patient care.

The prize was founded by its three sponsors, the Florida Chiropractic Foundation for Education & Research, Lincoln Chiropractic College Education & Research Fund, and FCA, along with the Lincoln Endowed Research Chair at the University of South Florida, to bring attention to chiropractic research and build the image of chiropractic in the scientific research community worldwide. The prize is awarded each year to an individual who demonstrates the most outstanding research productivity in patient-oriented, epidemiological and health outcomes research related to chiropractic care.

“I’m truly honored to have been selected as the recipient of the 2013 Lincoln Research Prize,” Dr. Goertz says. “Doctors of chiropractic, our medical colleagues, patients and scientists are now beginning to work together to figure out how to deliver the highest-quality, patient-centered care possible. I want to thank all of the prize’s sponsors and founders for recognizing the importance of chiropractic researchers as part of this team.”
