In addition to being licensed as a chiropractor and an athletic trainer in Georgia, she is certified as an athletic trainer through the National Athletic Trainers Association Board of Certification (BOC). Presently, Dr. Caron’s experience in sportsmedicine and chiropractic makes her a valuable asset in the Sport Health Science Department, teaching courses in physiologic therapeutics for the DC program and in the sports injury management Master’s program.

Dr. Caron’s professional philosophy: The role of the doctor is that of a mentor, providing information, skills and services to assist individuals in their quest for optimum health. The role of the educator is to provide students an opportunity to develop essential skills which will allow them to succeed in their chosen fields and in life. The difference between the two roles is where they are performed.
