He is the past owner and clinical director of four integrative health care centers in South Florida, and he currently serves as editor of several healthcare journals. McCoy is actively engaged in research in such areas as health outcomes, pediatric and maternal health, and outcome assessment. Sherman College named him Chiropractor of the Year at Lyceum 2017.

“The Board of Trustees of Sherman College is excited to have Dr. Shawn Dill and Dr. Matt McCoy as our latest appointments,” said Sherman College Board of Trustees Chair Peter Kevorkian, D.C. “They both bring to the board perspective and experience that will help advance the governance of Sherman College in this pivotal time in the college’s history. Dr. Dill is a leader in training doctors in Knee Chest Upper Cervical Specific adjusting, and Dr. McCoy is intimately involved in chiropractic research, education, and politics. We look forward to their contributions to the board, the college, and the profession.”
