In Memoriam


June, 2007

In 2007 we lost Dr. Ronald J. Watkins at the ripe age of 92.
Dr. Watkins was among the pioneering group of Chiropractors who came to Thailand in the mid-1990s at 83 years of age after a long and successful career in California. He was the first Chiropractor to establish a clinic in Pattaya. He continued to work full time until shortly before his death, a feat rarely achieved in any profession at that age, but almost unheard of in the Chiropractic field due to the physical demands of Chiropractic practice. Dr. Watkins was one of the key presenters when we gave our formal presentation on Chiropractic at the Ministry of Public Health in 1998. He is pictured in the center of the table of presenters in the picture below. Dr. Watkins longevity was a source of inspiration to all his Chiropractic colleagues in Thailand.
