In addition to his role providing chiropractic care in hospital settings, Dr. Morgan is team chiropractor for
the U.S. Naval Academy Football Team.
William Morgan, D.C., San Jose ’85, and a Palmer Board of Trustees
member, has been credentialed at five hospitals, including the Walter Reed National Military Medical
Center (the “President’s Hospital”), and has served on various committees and boards.
“When we’re out of sight, we’re out of mind,” he says. “When chiropractors aren’t present on advisory
boards or standard-of-care committees, we surrender our voice to others. We need to remember that
when we’re not at the table, we have no voice and no impact. Just being present in discussions reminds
decision-makers to include chiropractic in algorithms of care.”
Now, more than ever, chiropractors need to be present at the health-care table. “As scientific evidence
refutes the benefits of treatments like epidural steroids and opiates, chiropractors need to be present to
offer a drug-free, evidence-based alternative,” Dr. Morgan adds. “It doesn’t matter what the evidence
says if we aren’t present to advocate for chiropractic.”
