July 16, 2012 — Seventy new appointments were recently announced to the Order of Canada. Among them is Allan Gotlib, DC, who is being appointed as Member of the Order of Canada in recognition for his contributions to advancing research in the chiropractic profession and its interprofessional integration.
Allan Gotlib, DC, is the editor of the Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association. He is also the director of research programs for the Canadian Chiropractic Association and the executive vice-President for the Canadian Chiropractic Research Foundation.
Gotlib’s dedication to furthering research and interprofessional collaborative efforts for the profession of chiropractic has fueled his efforts to establish chiropractic research chairs in major universities in every province across the country. Because of this, DCs have been able to realize new and previously unfathomed opportunities to develop and disseminate health knowledge to benefit the health of all Canadians.
Over the years, Gotlib has received many provincial and national awards for his work within, and on behalf of, the profession.
Appointments to the Order of Canada are made on the recommendation of the Advisory Council for the Order of Canada. Recipients will be invited to accept their insignia at a ceremony to be held at a later date.
