Dr. Iva Hughes is Young Chiropractor of the Year

Iva Hughes, D.C. (Davenport ’06), received the Young Chiropractor of the Year Award from the South Carolina Chiropractic Association (SCCA). She is the first woman to ever win this award.

Dr. Iva is in good company. Her husband, Brian Hughes, D.C. (Davenport ’05), won the Young Chiropractor of the Year Award in 2008 and 2001. He was only the second doctor to receive the award twice from the Association.

Dr. Brian’s grandfather, Douglas B. Hughes, Jr., D.C. (Davenport ’77), has been the three-time recipient of the SCCA’s Chiropractor of the Year Award and was inducted into the South Carolina Chiropractic Hall of Fame in 2012.

The three Hughes doctors provide care at Hughes Chiropractic Clinics in Rock Hill and Chester, S.C.
