February 2, 2009 — For three of the past six years, the Chiropractor of the Year named by Allied Health has been a graduate of Northwestern Health Sciences University. Allied Health is a United States based network of more than 50 chiropractic clinics located in the Midwest. Nominations are made by the clinics and voted on by a committee.
Northwestern alumna Renata Anderson, DC, received the award in November 2008. “It was a great honor to receive the Chiropractor of the Year award,” she says. “There are so many awesome doctors doing so many great things, I never imagined I’d be chosen.” Selection for the award is based on hard work and efforts of doctors as well as interaction with patients.
Anderson, whose clinic is located in Onalaska, Wis., graduated from Northwestern in 1999. She completed her T10 externship experience at Allied Health and has worked there ever since. She says Northwestern helped with her success by providing her with the tools to finish school and pass her boards.
The other two Northwestern alumni to receive the Chiropractor of the Year award were Cary Gundlach (’98), who practices in Thorpe, Wis., and Pete Steinhafel (’98), who practices in Nekoosa, Wis.
