TRENTON, NJ – Governor Murphy today announced a Union chiropractor is one of three new appointments to the State Board of Chiropractic Examiners.
The Governor’s nominee from Union is Dr. Uchenna Abba Onyeani.
According to a press release from the governor’s office, Onyeani is a 12-year board certified licensed chiropractor, and the owner and operator of WGA Healthcare on Morris Avenue. Onyeani has previously served in positions at Soul Focus, the East Orange Department of Health, Signature Health and Wellness, the Denville Medical & Rehabilitation Center, as well as other chiropractic practices. He has served as a guest lecturer in at Rutgers Medical School, Essex County College, and other academic institutions throughout New Jersey. Onyeani received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from New York Chiropractic College, and his bachelor’s degree from Rutgers University-Newark. He is a member of the Association of New Jersey Chiropractors, International Chiropractors Association, and the Ivy Hill Neighborhood Association.
Other nominees are Dr. Kelly Blundy, of the Spine and Health Center of New Jersey, a chiropractic practice with locations in Montvale and Closter, and Dr. Michael Kaufman, owner and clinic director of Kaufman Chiropractic in Lawrenceville.
“I am excited to nominate this slate of highly-qualified individuals to the State Board of Chiropractic Examiners,” said Governor Murphy. “The Board’s recent decision to reinstate the license of a convicted sex offender was shocking and offensive. We must begin the work of reforming this board now, and I look forward to working with the Senate to confirm Drs. Blundy, Onyeani, and Kaufman to get started on this important effort.”
The new appointments, once confirmed by the Senate, will replace holdover appointees.
