Davenport faculty on WFC committee

Julie Schrad, D.C., and Lori Curry, both of Clinic Capstone Programs on the Davenport campus, will represent Palmer College of Chiropractic on the World Federation of Chiropractic’s Ad Hoc Committee on Practice Protocols for Practice Abroad. The purpose of the committee is to prepare a manual of recommended protocols for doctors of chiropractic and chiropractic students visiting other countries on a short-term basis to provide chiropractic care.

“We look forward to our work with David Chapman-Smith and representatives from other colleges and organizations,” said Dr. Schrad. “Palmer College is the leader in study/clinic abroad-type programs in chiropractic education, and we are pleased to offer our knowledge and experience toward this effort.”

Given Palmer’s extensive experience through its Clinic Abroad Program, which is now in its tenth year, Dr. Schrad and Curry will provide insight into the various aspects of shortterm trips abroad from an educational and clinical perspective. The committee’s goal is to develop a final draft report by April 2007.
