Patients at the World Spine Care clinic in Shoshong, Botswana.
If you want to make a difference for people in desperate
need of spinal care, World Spine Care (WSC)
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.

or to apply for a volunteer position, email WSC at
