Dr. Hoffman is a Life University Alumni, where he graduated with the class of 1981. It was in Michigan where he began his professional practice as well as his service to the Michigan Chiropractic Council and the ICA. He was elected as a Distinguished Fellow of the ICA in 1992 and has received many subsequent awards. In 1992, he responded to a call from then ICA President Dr. James R. Gregg to organize an ICA professional chiropractic malpractice insurance liability company to serve the malpractice insurance needs of the association’s members nationwide. Since then, Dr. Hoffman has devoted his professional energy to establishing and developing ChiroSecure, ICA’s exclusively endorsed and recognized chiropractic malpractice insurance carrier, earning the respect and appreciation of the profession and of the insurance industry in which he continues to be an active leader.
Dr. Hoffman is a member of a distinguished chiropractic family. Both of his brothers, Dr. Steve and Dr. Robert Hoffman, are each successful Chiropractors in their own right. Dr. Robert Hoffman served as the President of the ICA and was named ICA’s Chiropractor of the Year in 2002. Dr. Stuart and Dr. Robert have the distinction of being the only brothers to have both received the ICA’s highest award.
“Dr. Hoffman has made and continues to make extraordinary contributions to the chiropractic profession nationwide,” said ICA President Dr. George Curry. “I want to congratulate Dr. Hoffman on his long overdue and well-deserved recognition and to make sure that all within the chiropractic profession know how hard and selflessly he has worked to provide doctors in all 50 states with a unique level of chiropractic malpractice insurance services and options. We in the ICA are proud to recognize and salute him and to honor his extraordinary record of service”
The Chiropractor of the Year award is ICA’s highest honor, created by ICA Founder and President Dr. B.J. Palmer, and presented annually to one exceptional individual who has distinguished himself or herself through extraordinary service to the ICA and the chiropractic profession. Dr. Hoffman’s award was announced at the ICA’s 89th Annual Meeting held on the Life University campus in Marietta, Georgia April 30-May 2, 2015. The presentation was made by last year’s ICA Chiropractor of the Year, Dr. Julie Mayer-Hunt, at the ICA’s gala banquet on May 1st.
