Palmer receives new NIH grant

In September the College received official notice of a grant award from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine. This is a one-year grant for $110,000, with an option of an additional three years for a total of approximately $750,000. It will aid in Palmer’s ongoing efforts to further develop faculty, create a more evidence-based curriculum and expand research efforts throughout the College.

“Palmer is committed to providing the best education possible to future doctors of chiropractic,” said Palmer’s Executive Director for Research Christine Choate, D.C., Ph.D. “An important component of this process is to enhance our students’ ability to think critically and to incorporate new knowledge about how to deliver high quality chiropractic care to patients.”

Added Cynthia Long, Ph.D., a professor on Palmer’s research faculty who along with Dr. Choate serves as co-principal investigator for this project, “We will start out by assessing attitudes and knowledge among faculty and students about evidence-based practice. This information will help us in developing training programs to assist faculty in incorporating research findings and evidence in courses throughout the curriculum.”
