NYCC Student Attends Chiropractic Student Leadership Forum
New York Chiropractic College student Ashley Williams (D.C. '20) was selected to attend the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE) 17th Annual Student Leadership Forum, Jan. 24-25.
Leaders from national student chiropractic associations, along with chiropractic college representatives, met at the NBCE headquarters in Greeley, Colo., for a two-day forum about chiropractic testing and leadership development.
NYCC's Williams -- also a biomechanics research assistant at the College -- is one of eight student representatives from across the country chosen to attend the leadership forum. She has her Master of Science in ergonomics and biomechanics from New York University and is a certified personal trainer and licensed massage therapist.
While at the NBCE event, students were able to see presentations from NBCE leadership regarding the importance of valid, fair, and standardized testing, participate in a leadership development workshop and provide feedback on how NBCE can best serve chiropractic candidates across the country.
Williams said she was grateful to be able to attend the event and meet and talk with chiropractic students from across the country. "I am encouraged that the NBCE is making efforts to be as transparent as possible about their operations and exams," she said.
