My name is Billy Doherty. I am not a chiropractor but I have been involved with the Upper Cervical profession for the past 10 years as the marketing director for UCHC. Upper Cervical changed my life (and my family's - pictured above) and I am driven to create a greater awareness of the best-kept secret in health care. For this to happen, the UC community has got to come together, regardless of technique, organization and ego. Sound like something you heard before?
The UC community is small, and during the course of my involvement there has been great effort put forth by numerous organizations to unite our profession to expand awareness and gain critical mass. Progress has been made, but we still have a long way to go. Every doctor is busy working “IN” their practices and agrees UNITY is a great idea, but that seems to be where the idea of UNITY runs out of steam. Back in practice, the focus is on patient care and the effort to UNITE our profession takes a back seat. Until now, there has not been an organization that provides easily implemented opportunities for you to assist with the unification of the profession with minimal effort on your part.
Upper Cervical Health Centers (UCHC) has evolved over the past 10 years and is no longer the franchise model that most relate it to. We are thankful for the members who have grown with us. Regardless of your involvement with UCHC in the past, EVERYONE we meet agrees with our Vision, “By ourselves we can change our community but TOGETHER we can change the world.”
UCHC is about the BUSINESS of upper cervical chiropractic, and we provide the sandbox for you to share your best practices, learn with others, and mastermind with colleagues instead of being left to invent the wheel on your own. UCHC now operates as a membership based model and has a team of experienced professionals and doctors who are dedicated to sharing business ideas and strategies for the benefit of the group.
Lead by President, Dr. Jeff Scholten, along with board members David Glavonjic, Dr. Julie Hunt, Dr. Kerry Johnson, Greg Buchanan, Dr. Ray Drury, Dr. Thad Vuagniaux & Dr. Joey Miles, the future could not be brighter. I feel like we are finally in a position to move the profession forward.
One tremendous benefit of membership is a listing on the newly designed UpperCervicalCare.com; this patient education resource is worth the price of membership. There are currently too many social media posts asking where doctors are located, and this website is the solution. The more doctors we can get listed on the website, the greater potential for greater global awareness. Check it out at www.uppercervicalcare.com.
UCHC offers a variety of cost effective membership levels based on your practice’s needs and budget; there is something for everyone. Visit UCHCcommunity.com for a complete list of options and pricing for each level. Please note that there is no long-term commitment - we offer month-to-month membership allowing you to control your experience.
If you have any questions for me, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to serving you and finally taking Upper Cervical to the masses!
Yours in health,
UCHC has been a leader in collaboration within the Upper Cervical community for the majority of the last decade. Authors of this blog will be doctors in the organization who want to share helpful tips and insights to grow the UC Community.
