August 7, 2014 — At its annual Homecoming Celebration, New York Chiropractic College President Frank Nicchi, DC, presented retired Brigadier General Rebecca Halstead with the college’s Leadership Award recognizing “her commitment to leadership and devoted service to chiropractic and natural healthcare.” Nicchi cited Halstead’s strong support for the college and the chiropractic profession.
Halstead’s favorable personal experience with chiropractic and natural healthcare resulted in her championing the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP) and serving as an outspoken advocate for chiropractic care for military personnel.
The first female graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point to achieve the rank of Brigadier General, Halstead was also the first woman in U.S. history to command in combat at the strategic level. Her distinguished military career and considerable leadership experience culminated in her authoring a book The First Person You Must Lead Is You.
