Duty is celebrating 20 years of chiropractic service to the Chesapeake community.

Dr. Duty of is a board certified chiropractic neurologist who spent her childhood in the village, and remained there after her education to care for her hometown.

Duty, a graduate of Chesapeake High School, graduated from the National University of Health Sciences and opened her practice in Chesapeake in 1985. Since then she has treated patients of all ages and with a variety of conditions.

&#8220Even though this is a depressed area economically, it has been so worth it for fulfillment of the heart,” Dr. Duty said.

She said that over the years she has treated people that she grew up with, their children and families and staying here and making a difference in her own hometown has meant so much to her.

&#8220It's really nice to feel you've made a difference in your own community,” she said. &#8220I don't know what greater purpose there would be than that.”

On Nov. 3, the Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce is celebrating Duty's 20 years of chiropractic practice and service to the community, by hosting a party in her honor.

&#8220Dr. Duty has been in the Tri-State area for over 20 years and has been an entrepreneur of sorts in the chiropractic community,” said Jack Borders, Director of the Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce.

Borders said Dr. Duty has taken the lead and been faithful to the community and for those reasons, she is one of the people the Chamber wants to recognize.

&#8220I think she has been a real leader in that respect,” he said.
