Stephanie Halloran, DC, MS (class of 2016) has made her way back to University of Western States (UWS) as a new course facilitator in the human nutrition and functional medicine (HNFM) program. Dr. Halloran is an alumna of both the doctor of chiropractic and HNFM programs.

Currently, Dr. Halloran is also working on her postgraduate research fellowship at Yale Medical School on an integrative team that includes four other chiropractic physicians. The contingency’s project was funded by the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), and National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH).

In addition, Dr. Halloran is also a part of an effort to launch a member directory for medically-integrated DCs called DC Integration.

“Connecting this subset of the profession could lead to increased training opportunities for students, residents or research opportunities in musculoskeletal areas,” said Dr. Halloran. “This effort encompasses more than just the VA, but also DoD (Department of Defense), university and private sector positions.”

Following graduation, Dr. Halloran completed her clinical rotation at the Richard Roudebush VA Medical Center with Christopher Sherman, DC, in Indianapolis and completed a one-year residency program with the VA Connecticut Health Care System with Anthony Lisi, DC.

Dr. Halloran sits on the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) Editorial Review Advisory Board, the National Association of Spine Specialists Legislative and the SpinePAC Committee. She also has served on the ACA planning task force for the annual meeting, ENGAGE (formerly NCLC).
