June 17, 2008 — Seminars covering the biomechanical advantages of orthotic therapy, sponsored by Foot Levelers and Footmaxx and co-sponsored by Brican, Royal Cross, the British Columbia Chiropractic Association, and Northwestern Health Sciences University, raised more than $10,000, given to the Canadian Chiropractic Research Foundation (CCRF). The seminars were conducted in Toronto and Van Couver during May.
The CCRF is a charitable organization dedicated to funding and facilitating clinical, biomedical, health services, and population health research relative to the practice of chiropractic. CCRF grants assist doctors of chiropractic to obtain their masters and PhD degrees and to establish themselves in multi-disciplinary research positions.
The CCRF has also been instrumental in partnering with organizations such as the federal Canadian Institute for Health Research to establish chiropractic research chairs in universities across the country.
