Life University Student Receives ChiroFutures Scholarship

ChiroFutures Project Supports Research & Students

When we started ChiroFutures we committed to supporting research and other efforts that were geared toward ensuring the sustainability of the chiropractic profession – especially lifetime, subluxation based, family wellness chiropractic.

To that end ChiroFutures Malpractice Group established an annual scholarship in collaboration with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) in the amount of $2500.00 to be awarded to a chiropractic student.

It’s called the Larry Webster DC Memorial Scholarship and the first recipient was Marjorie Vining and she is a student at Life University in Marietta, Georgia.

She is working with Dr. Joel Alcantara Director of Research at the ICPA and her project is an assessment and evaluation of the education of chiropractors as it relates to pediatric care.  She is examining course syllabi in chiropractic as well as conducting a survey with pediatric instructors at chiropractic colleges in the United States and Canada.  In addition to collecting data from the colleges and professors, the Council on Chiropractic Education requirements for pediatric training are also being evaluated. 

We look forward to the results of this important work
