Dr. Megan Ries Graduates from Emerging Leaders Class of 2016

June 9, 2016

The Iowa Chiropractic Society (ICS) and the Iowa Chiropractic Education and Research Foundation (ICERF) hosted the 2016 Emerging Leaders Program June 3–5 in Ankeny, IA. ICS members were selected from a pool of applicants to take part in this year’s conference. Emerging Leaders program graduates demonstrate effective leadership qualities for the purpose of improving overall health through chiropractic.

The Emerging Leaders program is an educational curriculum designed to develop leaders for the chiropractic profession and their communities. Graduates obtain through the program: leadership skills, develop strengths needed for successful leadership within their community on behalf of the profession, develop goals for their practice and professional success, and become a leader and relied upon to be an effective advocate for chiropractic in Iowa.

Dr. Megan Ries was chosen to participate. She practices at Keystone Chiropractic, which recently opened in West Des Moines in May. Dr. Ries focuses on a unique area of chiropractic called NeuroStructural Correction.  In contrast to conventional chiropractors whose goal is to provide temporary relief of pain; Dr. Ries’ goal is to restore the underlying framework of the body back to the stability of what all healthcare professionals agree is normal. In addition, Dr. Megan Ries also has post-graduate training in working with pregnant moms and children.
