Dr. Cambron inducted into Massage Therapy Hall of Fame
NUHS Dean Jerrilyn Cambron, DC, MPH, PhD, LMT, was inducted into the 2018 Massage Therapy Hall of Fame during the World Massage Festival held August 7 in Las Vegas. This high honor is awarded to individuals who have significantly helped further the field and educate others about massage therapy. The Hall of Fame was created in 2006 by two members of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA).
“I am humbled and honored to be included among so many great contributors within the massage therapy profession,” Dr. Cambron said. “Thank you for this incredible moment in my career.”
Dr. Cambron has been actively involved in massage therapy research for several years. Some of her recent work includes co-authoring a series of research papers documenting how massage therapy can help various conditions, including pain from surgery and cancer. The papers were published in Pain Medicine, a prestigious medical journal in the July, August, and September 2016 issues.
In addition to her role as Dean of the College of Allied Health Sciences and Distance Education at NUHS, Dr. Cambron was also the immediate past President of the Massage Therapy Foundation, an organization that focuses on massage therapy research, community service, and education.
