Remembering Dr. Sanghak Oh Harrison (1954-2023)
It is with great sorrow that the International Chiropractors Association (ICA) announces the passing of
Dr. Sanghak Oh Harrison on January 31, 2023. Dr. Sang was an inspirational leader to many in the Chiropractic profession. Dr. Sang graduate from Life Chiropractic College (now Life University) in March of 1983.
ICA President, Dr. Selina Sigafoose Jackson stated, “While I never had the privilege of meeting Sang, I have witnessed the fruit of her dedication to our profession and for that I am eternally grateful.”
After graduating she moved to California to practice Chiropractic. This is where she met her late husband Dr. Don Harrison. From 1986-2010, Dr. Sang was instrumental in helping to grow and teach CBP Technique systems to Chiropractors around the globe.
Dr. Sang served for several decades as the Treasurer on the Board of Directors of Chiropractic BioPhysics® NonProfit, a chiropractic nonprofit research foundation. She was instrumental in the early years of successful publication of research papers on subluxation detection on Xray and correction using CBP® Technique. This was at a time when it was very challenging for chiropractors in private practice to have papers accepted for publication in the Index Medicus literature.
ICA Vice-President, Dr. Joe Betz added, “I had the pleasure of working with Sang on so many projects in the profession. Whether it was the numerous research projects with CBP® technique, ICA’s Representative Assembly or teaching at CBP® Seminars, Sang was one of those quiet leaders, behind the scenes, making sure things got done. Her amazing work ethic will long serve as an inspiration to many in the profession.”
Sang was very artistic and provided nearly all the original artwork for early CBP® textbooks and published research papers. She was a regular columnist for the American Journal of Clinical Chiropractic. Sang also served on the ICA Representative Assembly for the state of Wyoming in the early 2000’s. Her leadership in the profession will be missed.
ICA Member, Len Siskin, DC recalls, “What most people didn’t realize is, Sang woke up at 4AM and worked until 8PM seven days per week for thirty years with few days off in dedication to the Chiropractic profession and the development of Chiropractic BioPhysics®. She remembered details about every one of the many thousands of people who attended CBP® seminars. She supported Dr. Don Harrison while he went through school for two simultaneous graduate degrees (PhD in applied mathematics and a Master’s of Science in Engineering) after already completing a couple of decades in Chiropractic practice. Even while Don was in graduate school, they continued teaching seminars and performing services for the chiropractic profession. Sang worked with Don to use their personal funds to fight lawsuits to protect the chiropractic profession. She was one of the most intelligent and dedicated people I’ve known.”
In her personal life, she spent time gardening and caring for animals. Sang had one son Erin Molyneux. She was a single mother while attending Life Chiropractic College and worked her way through school to support her young family.
Stepdaughter Holly Harrison tells us, “Her internal strength and work ethic were incredible. She even Ph-balanced the vegetables in the greenhouse my dad had built for her. In remembrance of her, hear her words, ‘Help someone and they will help you.’”
The International Chiropractors Association sends its sincere condolences to the family and friends of Dr. Sang. May her memory live on and inspire future generations.
