PASADENA, Texas – The International Federation of Sports Chiropractic (FICS) recently awarded their 2013 scholarships, including one for Texas Chiropractic College student Kelley Humphries. Humphries was chosen from a group of 42 applicants from 17 different colleges from around the world to receive a $1,000 scholarship sponsored by Standard Process.
The FICS required the students to write an essay concerning the importance of sports chiropractic services to athletes in training and competition, and to the future growth of the chiropractic profession. With headquarters in Switzerland, this international organization is comprised of national chiropractic sports councils worldwide and individual members with affiliations in international organizations within the chiropractic profession and the world of sports.
“We are all very proud of Kelley and her many accomplishments here at TCC,” said TCC Interim President Dr. Fred Zuker. “She is already contributing to the chiropractic profession in the world of research and sports chiropractic. We look forward to hearing much more about Kelley’s achievements in the future.”
Humphries is a Trimester-9 student at Texas Chiropractic College and currently interning in the Moody Health Center. She has previously presented research at the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Practitioners - Sports Symposium and the Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students.
Beginning in January 2014, Kelley will join Dr. James Kurtz of NW Sports Rehab in Seattle, Wash., to shadow with him in his practice where he treats the Seattle Seahawks. She will also begin a preceptorship in March 2014 in Colorado Springs, Colo. at the Olympic Training Center, observing and gaining experience with Dr. Dustin Nabhan and Dr. Bill Moreau. Kelley will graduate from TCC in April 2014.
“I can honestly say that Kelley is one of the best students I have ever had in eleven years of teaching,” said Dr. John Ward, TCC Professor. “I strongly believe she will be a leader in our profession in the years to come.”
