American Chiropractic Association Names NUHS Alumnus President
During its April 30 meeting in Calgary, Canada, the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) Board of Governors (BOG) elected N. Ray Tuck, Jr., DC, to serve as its new president. Dr. Tuck is a class of 1997 National University of Health Sciences alumnus (then National College of Chiropractic), and a second-generation chiropractic physician.
“I’m honored to serve as ACA president and continue this association’s important work to advance and integrate chiropractic as part of the health care team through quality care and patient satisfaction,” he said.
Tuck has served in multiple leadership positions within the ACA and in his home state, and has acted as interim ACA president since his installation at the ACA House of Delegates (HOD) meeting in March. Additionally, he was Chairman of the previous board for two years.
Dr. Tuck served six years as the Virginia delegate to the HOD. He is the past president of the Virginia Chiropractic Association, and is currently serving on the Virginia Board of Medicine as appointed by the Governor of Virginia, as well as his county economic development authority.
He is president of Tuck Chiropractic Clinic, a Virginia group practice, with 17 doctors in nine locations.
At the same meeting in Calgary, NUHS alumna Karen Konarski-Hart, DC, ’79, was elected to serve as the ACA’s vice president. She served as vice president of the previous ACA board, and received the organization’s 2018 Humanitarian of the Year Award in earlier in March.
