Faculty take part in WFC conference

Two Palmer faculty members were presenters for a two-day seminar during the third annual World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) Eastern Mediterranean Regional Meeting held in Cairo, Egypt, March 28-29. The event was hosted by the Chiropractic Society of Egypt through the support of Palmer College.

West Campus Professor Edward Feinberg, D.C., DACBSP, West ’83, presented a fullday seminar titled “Upper Extremity Conditions – Consider the Kinetic Chain.”

“I got a real sense that chiropractic is one big family bonded together by the joy we experience from the doctor/ patient interaction,” Dr. Feinberg said. “We had chiropractors from Egypt, Cyprus, Iran, Lebanon, Dubai, France and other countries.”

Additionally, Davenport Campus Assistant Professor Tracey Littrell, D.C., DACBR, Davenport ’97, led a full day on MRI and CT Basics and Upper Extremity Adjusting. “The attending chiropractors were very receptive to the information I presented,” Dr. Littrell said. “They were able to present their clinical questions and we discussed different cases and appropriateness of imaging procedures for various presentations.”
