Dr. Press gives the 1st ever Chiropractic Adjustment in the USSR - 1988
Dr. Stephen Press, DC, PhD, CCSP, FACSM, FICC, ICCSP
I'm a practicing Chiropractic physician (36 years). And a BUREAUCRAT for the New York based site called OurMed. The promotion was made by Florence Devouard (Anthere), former Chairman of the Wikimedia Board of Directors, who is one of the founding members of the OurMed BoD. In early 2010, OurMed's Chairman, Prof. Stan Kachnowski, of Columbia's HITlab, invited me to become the new Executive Technical Director for OurMed, and I have accepted with gratitude.
The Wikipedia War
My son Robert Press, MS, (Comp Sci),DC, and I founded wikiChiro during a long and ugly battle on Wikipedia with a cabal of anti-alternative health forces who were skewing all alternative health articles out of balance. When I tried to bring some semblance of reason back to the subject they set me up for a "community ban" on trumped up, libelous and manufactured charges. It was not until Jimmy Wales himself, interceded that they reinstated my account. Thereafter, I have done very little on Wikipedia, determined instead to bring my expertise and time to venues that would be better for my profession, and in other venues where more objective information can be provided to the public.

I have long collected various puiblications about the city, and have personal recollections going back to the 1960's. Recently, when I developed a sufficiently strong knowledgeof wiki sites to put this site up without bothering my now very busy son for help, I posted it and contacted my friend Charlotte Bennett Schoen and the rest, as we say is now "history" :)
