During the 2011 Florida Chiropractic Association National Convention and Expo., held in Orlando, Fla., Howard Wasdin, DC, former Navy Seal and author of The New York Times best-seller Seal Team Six: Memoirs of an Elite Navy Seal Sniper, made an initial pledge to support the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress. Dr. Wasdin immediately displayed his supportive position by engaging in a presentation and book signing to publically announce his advocacy.
"Chiropractic care is one of the best kept secrets in healthcare and it has become my new mission to enlighten others about the service that will inevitably rescue their health," shares Dr. Wasdin, a graduate of Life University currently practicing in Jesup, Ga. "My contribution and commitment to the Foundation exemplifies my belief in the impact of their positive chiropractic campaign."
Dr. Wasdin will serve as a spokesperson to the foundation and will participate in a number of events on behalf of the organization. Following severe injuries received at the Battle of Mogadishu (memorialized in Black Hawk Down), Dr. Wasdin was introduced to chiropractic care, which contributed significantly to his recovery. Since then, he has found personal and professional gratification in providing patients with relief from pain and improvements in wellness.
Kent S. Greenawalt, founder of the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, expressed gratitude for the support of Dr. Wasdin. "It is an honor to have a decorated national hero supporting the Foundation, his incomparable experiences, values and pledge to chiropractic will strengthen the mission of the Foundation and provide continued growth for the entire profession."
