Dr. Anthony Hamm Elected New President of American Chiropractic Association

The American Chiropractic Association's (ACA) House of Delegates (HOD) met recently in Washington, D.C., and elected Anthony Hamm, DC, of Goldsboro, N.C., to serve as president for the next two years.

Dr. Hamm has a long history of working collaboratively with other health-related professionals and is a national expert on chiropractic coding, documentation and risk management issues. He has lectured and written extensively on these subjects over many years. In 2011, he made history as the first chiropractic physician to be elected co-chair of the American Medical Association's (AMA) Health Care Professionals Advisory Committee Review Board (HCPAC). HCPAC develops recommendations on values for new and revised CPT® codes.

Dr. Hamm previously served as ACA vice president, president of the ACA Council of Delegates and as the association's North Carolina delegate. He is also past chairman of ACA's Coding and Reimbursement Committee and Ethics Committee.

In his first remarks as president, Dr. Hamm encouraged delegates to focus on creating greater access to chiropractic services for patients looking for new and better options. "We possess the opportunity to shape health care into a conservative-first approach, to promote health, wellness and preventive strategies and to promote patient-centered, evidence-informed health care."

Dr. Hamm earned his chiropractic doctoral degree in 1979 from National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, IL. He holds post-doctoral certifications in chiropractic orthopedics, acupuncture and forensic sciences. In his home state, he has served as a forensic examiner/expert in professional liability and fraud investigations. In addition to being a member of the North Carolina Chiropractic Association, he is active locally in several community and civic organizations, and is a past chairman of the Wayne County Special Olympics.

Joining Dr. Hamm on ACA's Executive Committee are Vice President David Herd, DC, of Geneva, N.Y. and Chairman of the Board of Governors Richard Bruns, DC, of Bangor, Maine. Other leaders elected to the association's Board of Governors (BOG) include:

  • Craig Newman, DC, of Tampa, Fla., was reelected District 5 governor
  • Immediate Past Chairman of the Board of Governors Michael Simone, DC, of Dacono, Colo., was elected District 6 governor
  • Ray Tuck, DC, of Christiansburg, Va., was reelected District 3 governor

Continuing on the BOG are:

  • Joseph Morelli, DC, of Waipahu, Hawaii, District 7 governor
  • Keith Overland, DC, of Norwalk, Conn., immediate past president
  • Kelli K. Pearson, DC, of Spokane Valley, Wash., District 1 governor
  • James L. Rehberger, DC, of Highland, Ill., District 2 governor

In Council of Delegates elections, Karen Konarski-Hart, DC, of Little Rock, Ark. and Leo Bronston, DC, of Onalaska, Wis., were elected president and vice president, respectively.

A complete list of ACA leadership is available online.
