Daniel Redwood, DC, is a writer and editor on health and health policy. He has been called his profession’s “translator of ideas,” based on his speaking and writing about the science of chiropractic and integrative health care in language that can be understood not only by health professionals but also by non-specialists and the general public.
Through Redwood HealthSpeak, Dr. Redwood accepts consulting assignments involving writing, editing and/or strategic thinking for projects consistent with his principles.
I’ve known Dan Redwood as a friend and colleague for almost thirty years. His commitment to helping and healing others, and to giving all of us the best information on how to do it, is unwavering. He combines a striking breadth and depth of knowledge with an eagerness to learn more and a humility about what he knows that is rare in medicine, health care, or indeed any field. And, on top of all that, he interviews with intelligence and empathy, makes complex scientific and policy issues easily comprehensible, and writes with integrity and grace. He is always interesting to speak to and a joy to work with.

Daniel Redwood is a wonderful writer and a highly skilled editor who is recognized both inside and outside the chiropractic profession as a leader in the integrative health care movement. He is a rare blend of visionary and pragmatist. I have seen first-hand Dan’s great passion for chiropractic, healing, education and justice. All of his work is of the highest quality.

I have known Dan Redwood for two decades and worked with him on many projects. He is a bridge-builder who has worked with diligence and integrity to develop and further understanding of his field and what they do in the larger context of health care services. He excels in making the principles and practices of his own profession clear not only to the medical community, but also to other health-care specialties. He has the intellectual skills to look at data and understand science and how it relates to practice. As someone who has worked on dozens of books with leading practitioners and writers from many health professions, I would say that Dan is one of the most gifted writers and editors I’ve seen.

Daniel Redwood is a writer, editor and thinker of extraordinary talent, energy and creativity. He is widely respected throughout the chiropractic profession for his dedication, knowledge and vision. A practitioner who became an educator, he has a unique ability to translate scientific information into language that can be readily understood by lay readers. His booklet, Chiropractic Research and Practice: State of the Art (Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, 2010) is among the best tools we have for conveying our message to patients, potential patients, other health professionals and legislators.

Dan Redwood, DC, is a one of the most gifted translators of complex ideas that I have had the pleasure of working with. For more than three decades, he has thought and written deeply about chiropractic, integrative and complementary medicine, healing, health policy, ethics, and many other topics. His ability to vacuum up volumes of information, distill it, and then elegantly summarize the important points is nothing short of a fine art. He is an articulate thought leader, with vision and insight, but with an experienced eye and taste for the practical and feasible, too.

I have known Dr. Dan Redwood for over 20 years. During that time he has demonstrated expertise as a superb clinician, has delivered lectures on chiropractic at conventional medicine institutions, authored two highly regarded textbooks and served on the editorial boards of prestigious journals. He is a thought leader and pioneer who has become a prolific and much sought-after commentator on future healthcare delivery trends in the United States. Based on this expertise, he was chosen by the Integrated Healthcare Policy Consortium to write the report on a major meeting about the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that was held at Georgetown University.”

I have followed Dan’s writing for many years and have worked closely with him on the editorial team at the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress. The chiropractic profession needs good writers and editors and he is among our best. He has a special way with words, both in his own original writing and in his artful editing of the others’ work. Dan also has an unusual ability to work quickly while maintaining high quality.
