New Presidents Announced at Parker, Sherman

Brian McAulay, DC, PhD, provost and executive vice president of Life University, former VP / provost of Sherman College of Chiropractic and former vice president for academic affairs at Palmer College, is the new president of Parker University. The decision by the Parker Board of Trustees came nearly four months after longtime president Dr. Fabrizio Mancini announced his retirement and two weeks after the presidential search committee announced it had narrowed the field from 36 applicants to two: Dr. McAulay and Dr. William Morgan, clinical department head at the National Naval Medical Center, Walter Reed Military Medical Center and the Uniformed Services University of Health Services.

"I am very proud to become a part of the Parker family and I look forward to helping the institution maintain its reputation as one of the premier schools in chiropractic education." said Dr. McAulay, adding, "I am very aware of the impact Parker Seminars and Dr. Parker had on the chiropractic profession, and I consider it a great honor to oversee this effort." Dr. McAulay will serve as president of the university and Parker Seminars.

Meanwhile, Edwin Cordero, DC, has been named the fifth president of Sherman College of Chiropractic, effective Jan. 1, 2013. He succeeds Dr. Jon Schwartzbauer, who announced in May 2012 that he would be stepping down. A 1993 graduate of Life University's College of Chiropractic, Dr. Cordero practices in Boynton Beach, Fla. He was the Florida Chiropractic Society's Chiropractor of the Year in 2011. In choosing Dr. Cordero, the Sherman board of trustees reviewed 20 applications, ultimately narrowing the field to three applicants in October before making their final selection. Dr. Schwartzbauer continued as president during that time and officially relinquished his position on Dec. 31, 2012.

The Chiropractic Journal Says Goodbye

An e-mail to advertisers on Dec. 17, 2012, announced that The Chiropractic Journal would cease publication after 27 years. In his e-mail, publisher Timothy J. Feuling stated: "I want to thank every one of you for marketing with TCJ all these years (or months if you are newer to the publication). ... I looked up deadlines of other publications and there is plenty of time to get linked up to the other publications for their February issue. ... The January 2013 final issue of TCJ you are in will go out in just a few weeks. This is a great final issue."

Feuling acquired The Chiropractic Journal earlier in 2012, as noted in an article in the April 2012 of TCJ issue noted: "Timothy Feuling, senior vice president of CBS Malpractice since 1996, has acquired The Chiropractic Journal, now in its 26th year of publication. As the new publisher, Feuling will continue distributing a monthly print version to DCs and chiropractic students around the country while increasing and strengthening the electronic reach of the publication via its website, social media, and mobile applications."

Oddly enough, there was no mention of the former owner of The Chiropractic Journal in the April 2012 article. Also noteworthy was the absence of the World Chiropractic Alliance (WCA) logo from the front page of the April 2012 issue. In fact, the World Chiropractic Alliance is not listed anywhere on The Chiropractic Journal Web site.

As late as the March 2012 issue, TCJ was "the official publication of the World Chiropractic Alliance." The home page of the WCA Web site has apparently not been updated since July 13, 2012. Thus far, all efforts to learn more about the future of TCJ and the WCA have proven unsuccessful.
