Dr. Winn Sams- Chiropractic (Her)story Episode 58

Dr. Sams practices in Columbus, NC a small town nestled in the foothills of the western part of the state. A native of Charlotte, NC with a B.A. in Economics from the University of North Carolina- Chapel Hill, Dr. Sams graduated from Sherman College of Chiropractic in 2002 summa cum laude and valedictorian of her class. Her mission of bringing education, awareness and change began over 12 years ago when she began advocating for states to bring resolutions/legislation around what is happening to our children from wearing too heavy of a backpack .

To date, she has helped eight states pass resolutions and implement the intent in schools all over the country. Two years ago, after having a poor communication experience with a local hospital and because of a huge need to provide informed consent on many levels in healthcare, she formed Least Invasive First.

Least Invasive First, or LIF, started out as a communication tool support for patients to be a part of defining their care, but quickly changed course to become an advocacy platform. To address the opioid issue, she decided to bring the recommendations of the American Medical Association, Centers for Disease Control, World Medical Association, World Health Organization , Joint Commission and more, on how to treat pain management by using a least invasive approach first from just words to being a reality. West Virginia and Delaware have passed bills with her language/intent, with more states filing this session. After a recent trip to the Capitol, where she was part of an unprecedented event to encourage legislators to join the newly formed Integrative Health Caucus, she realized it was time to take her advocacy work to the next level for her goals to be achieved.
