An evening honouring Dr. Jean Moss
By Maria DiDanieli
Jun. 10, Toronto, Ont. – The Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) invites chiropractors to the Fairmont Royal York Hotel on Saturday, October 26, 2013, to celebrate the remarkable accomplishments of Dr. Jean Moss.
Dr. Moss joined the CMCC faculty in 1971 while maintaining a private practice and starting a family. By 1991, she had become the first woman to be appointed CMCC President.
CMCC has prospered during her 42-year tenure, developing a reputation for the quality of its educational programs, the competence of its graduates and the breadth of its innovations. The greatest of these occurred in 2004, with the move to the new landmark campus that raised CMCC’s facilities to a new level while creating a focal point for the profession. Among her other achievements were funding a research chair, opening a chiropractic clinic within a teaching hospital and in 2011, obtaining renewed consent to grant the Doctor of Chiropractic degree for an unprecedented 10 years.
During her presidency, CMCC and the chiropractic community have been transformed, and Dr. Moss has earned global recognition. Known for her leadership and tireless work ethic, she has received several prestigious accolades. The most recent was the WFC Honour Award – a citation reserved for a few individuals who have bequeathed a lifetime of distinguished and exceptional service to advance the growth of our profession.
The gala reception will be at 6:00 p.m. with dinner planned for 7:00 p.m. Limited seating is available – DCs are encouraged to visit http://www.cmcc.ca/gala2013 and reserve their spot now. A special room rate has been made available for gala patrons. For reservations, please contact the Royal York Hotel at 1-800-441-1414 – group name CMCC.
