September 15, 2011 — Kent Greenawalt, president and CEO of Foot Levelers, was presented with the Fellowship Award from International College of Chiropractors Incorporated (ICCI) Aug. 27 at the Florida Chiropractic Association national convention in Orlando, Fla.
The ICCI is a nonprofit organization that encourages a high code of ethics among practitioners, researchers, educators, and others in the chiropractic profession.
Recipients of the fellowship award have a designation as a fellow. Becoming a fellow is bestowed upon those whose contributions have made or who will make significant impact upon the science of chiropractic and who render valuable and meritorious service to the profession. Individuals have to be nominated by a Fellow member; the ICCI Board Members vote on nominees and those selected receive the fellowship award.
The fellowship award is usually only given to doctors of chiropractic, but individuals who have done extraordinary things for the profession can receive an honorary fellow award.
“I am very surprised Kent was not given this award earlier,” said Dr. Kenneth W. Padgett, president of the ICCI. “Kent and his company, Foot Levelers, have been so beneficial to the profession. He has done a number of outstanding things for the profession — too many to name. Their goodwill and monetary donations have gone above and beyond all expectations.”
An example of Greenawalt’s contribution to chiropractic is the formation of the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP) in 2003. He currently serves as the founder and chairman of the board for the F4CP. The F4CP embraces a mission of generating positive press for the chiropractic profession and increasing public awareness to the many benefits associated with chiropractic care.
“Kent contributes, progresses, and advances chiropractic because he truly loves the profession,” Padgett concludes. “He deserves, and is fully entitled to the fellowship award.”
