When the Florida legislature declined to provide public funding for chiropractic education a few years ago, members of the Mid-Florida Chiropractic Society took it upon themselves to help out.

“We made it our goal to try to help chiropractic students, in particular those from Florida,” said Michael Chance, D.C., Davenport ’78, and director of the Mid-Florida Chiropractic Society (MFCS).

The society’s members come from a variety of chiropractic colleges and programs. “I think our common interest is to support chiropractic in our state and in our region,” said Dr. Chance. “Our members support the idea of helping the profession to continue to grow by offering scholarships that help produce future chiropractors,” he said. The society he heads encompasses 13 counties in mid-Florida.

On March 28, the MFCS teamed up with Standard Process to sponsor their Swing Back into Spring golf tournament at Ironwood Golf Course in Gainesville. Standard Process provided sponsorships to 20 Palmer College students for their participation in the event.

Last year this event was named the top PR event of the year by the Florida Chiropractic Association, the statewide association that works closely with the MFCS. “I think this year’s event may have surpassed last year’s,” said Dr. Chance. “Everyone had a great time at the golf tournament and we are happy to be in a position to award another check to Dr. Martin that will help a worthy Palmer College student with their education.”
