PRESS RELEASE

WFC BOARD MEMBER RECOGNIZED WITH AUSTRALIAN HONOR

Toronto, June 14, 2021. A member of the Board of Directors of the World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) has been recognized for his service to the chiropractic profession with a national honor.

Andrew Lawrence OAMDr Andrew Lawrence was announced as a recipient of the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) in the Queen's Birthday Honours List, published today.

The Order of Australia, first instituted by Her Majesty the Queen in 1975, is the pre-eminent way Australians recognize achievements and service of their fellow citizens. Dr Lawrence joins a number of other Australian chiropractors who have been nationally recognized in this way.

Initially trained as a pharmacist, Dr Lawrence qualified from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1980 and has been in continuous private practice in Melbourne, Australia for 40 years.

Dr Lawrence served a first term of office as president of the Australian Chiropractors Association (formerly the Chiropractors Association of Australia) between 1986 and 1990. He served two further terms as President, between 2001 and 2005 and between 2014 and 2018, when he presided over an historic restructuring of the association.

OAMMarried with four children, Dr Lawrence has a particular interest in family chiropractic and health promotion. For 28 years, between 1990 and 2018, he served as a part-time lecturer within the chiropractic faculty at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology.

Commenting on today's announcement, WFC Secretary-General Richard Brown said: "Andrew has served the chiropractic profession tirelessly over five decades and we are delighted to see his work recognized in this way. His leadership has been instrumental in advancing the chiropractic profession in Australia and we are privileged to have him representing the Pacific region on the WFC Board."

The WFC Board of Directors is made up of 13 representatives, nominated or elected from each of the WFC’s seven world regions.
