president of NUHS, which publishes the journal. 
The three NUHS journals are: the Journal
of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics
(JMPT), the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine (JCM)
and the JCH. “My personal thanks and appreciation goes to Editor-in-chief of
the journal, Dr. Claire Johnson, and Associate Editor Bart Green, DC, for their
dedication and commitment to the quality and content of the JCH. That quality
has made this indexing possible.”
