World Spine Care wants you

If you want to make a difference for people in desperate need of spinal care, World Spine Care (WSC) wants you.

Founded by Scott Haldeman, M.D., Ph.D., D.C., Davenport ’64, WSC has established spinal health care clinics in parts of the world where there was no access to spine care.

World Spine Care has developed clinical protocols implemented in pilot programs in Shoshong and Mahalapye, Botswana. The non-profit organization also has opened a clinic in Moca, Dominican Republic. Other clinics in Tanzania and India are in the development phase.

Treatment provided in all WSC clinics follows evidence- based protocols as established by the clinical team. Each clinic is involved in a research program to determine outcomes.

To continue this important work, WSC is looking for chiropractors to volunteer their time at one of its clinics. The current need is for volunteer associate clinicians to work for time periods of at least a month. To prepare for future expansion, WSC is developing a database of those interested in being a clinic supervisor and running a WSC clinic for a year or more. If you’d like to be put on this list, contact WSC through the email address or website below.
