Many years ago when Richelle and I were students at Sherman College, Reggie Gold told students that the battle for politics and philosophy in Chiropractic has moved from the school level to the state level. He said that we had to be board-busters and change our state organizations and state boards. Richelle took that to heart and has been part of changing the state board and state organization in Colorado since we arrived over 20 years ago.
In this episode, you’ll hear the new president of the Colorado Chiropractic Association discuss the changes that have happened and will be happening in the months ahead. People, listen to this because this in not just a Mile High State episode. It will help you have some insight about how you can make an impact in your state, in your region, or your country. While at Parker Chiropractic College, Dr. Waters fell in love with neurology. He found it fascinating to see how the nervous system from a neurological standpoint runs everything from the cells, tissues, organs, and disease processes. “I can see a change in a person right after a treatment. It drives me to see that change in somebody. It’s satisfying to see someone crawl into my office and be able to walk out.” Or as his wife likes to say, “Hobble in but skip out.”
In addition to his Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Waters serves the Colorado Chiropractic Association (CCA) as current President 2021-2022
When he’s not caring for patients, Dr. Waters enjoys an active family life with his wife, son, and 2 dogs. The family enjoys listening to music, going to the zoo, taking nature walks and going to thrift stores. Dr. Waters is also a Mason, Shriner, and belongs to the Scottish Rite. He also spends time officiating at high school football games and working out at a local gym. Check out the Colorado Chiropractor’s Association website at http://www.coloradochiropractic.org.
