The big pictu :e ofhealth octor means "teacher," D and one of the roles I enjoy most as a chiro- practic doctor is 'to help teachpeople about their spine and its relationship to health and well-being. This I call The Big Picture. Seeing the big picture begins with tmderstand- ing some basic concepts of healthl Doctors of chiropractic under- go a minimum of seven years of training in subjects ranging from anatomy and physiology to neu- rology, biochemistry, pathology, diagnosis, and many more. Armed with this knowledge, chi- ropractic doctors believe a healthy body begins with a healthy spine. This is how it works: the spinal column is made up of movable vertebrae that encase and protect the spinal cord, the key,communica- tion pathway between the brain and every cell, tissue and organ - in the body. When the spine is not aligned or moving correctly, this vital nervous system path- way can become compromised. Chiropractic doctors call this vertebral subluxation. Because spinal alignment and function can affect the nervous system, and Since the,nervous system di- rectly communicates with the body's other systems, including the immuneresponse, the health of the spine can play a signifi- cant, rote in the ability of the body to be healthy. As a chiropraCtor for 20 years, I have witnessed profound health changes in patients-who choose to try to correct abnor- mal alignment and function of their spines. Chiropractors call this chiropractic corrective care. It involves a program of precise spinal adjustments combined with specific spinal rehabilita- tive exercises. The goal is to im- prove the actual structure of the spine through remolding its alignment and shape to as close to normal as possible, and re-ed- ucating joints, muscles and oth- er .......................... The result of chiropractic cor- rective care is the body is now provided an opportunity to re- gain a more optimum level of health. As proper spinal function is restored, patients may experi- ence improvement in many ar- eas of their health: not just headaches, neck and back pain, but digestive problems, energy, poor sleep, chronic colds and flu, and so on. The effect this can have on their lives is enormous. Their work performance im- proves; they can get back to do- ing the things they love doing, and they are happy again and ex- cited about life.

Since its inception in 1992, the DoD BCRP has become the sec- ond-largest source of breast can- cer research funding in the Unit- sponsored by the Department of ed States and has received more Defense Breast Cancer Research Program. The Era of Hope meeting is a unique forum for scientists, clini- cians, breast cancer survivors (called consumer advocates within the BCRP), and the public to come together and discuss the latest findings in breast cancer research and future directions to eradicate this disease. The 2011 Era of Hope meeting featured nearly 1,200abstracts focusing on the BCRP's break- throughs in the prevention, de- tection, diagnosis, and treatment of breast cancer. The most cur- rent topics in the breast cancer community were discussed at the meeting, including disease risk and recurrence, metastasis, stem cells, novel therapies, im- proved imaging, vaccines, and health disparities. Holloway was invited to attend the Era of Hope meeting as are- sult of her prior participation as a consumer reviewer of research applications submitted to the DoD BCRP. Holloway runs the Peer Men- tor Support Program and Clini- than $2.68 billion in congression- al appropriations, resulting in more than 10,000 unique awards that fulfill unmet needs in breast cancer research.. Unlike other cancer research funding organizations, the BCRP is a pioneer in the inclusion of consumer advocates in every as- pect of the research process. Since the program's inception, more than 750 survivors have participated in the program, in- cluding setting the program's vi- sion, participating in the review of proposals, making funding recommendations, and aiding in the research process. Through this approach of combined involvement, the BCRP enhances partnerships be- tween the survivor community and Scientists. The survivors' unique per- spective brings a sense of ur- gency to the program, ensuring the BCRP remains focused on its ultimate goal of eradicating breast cancer.
