AECC University College is delighted to announce the appointment of Dr Richard Brown as Honorary Visiting Professor.

Dr Brown has long been an influential and well-respected member of the global Chiropractic community, and has been serving as Secretary-General of the World Federation of Chiropractic since 2015.

Dr Brown also served as President of the British Chiropractic Association between 2009 and 2013. Between 2009 and 2015, he held roles within the European Chiropractors’ Union, becoming its first Secretary-General in 2013. He was awarded a fellowship by AECC University College in 2017.
