The Women Chiropractors (Wdc) organization has opened enrollment for their ReEntry program, designed to assist doctors of chiropractic returning to practice after life events such as the birth of a child or a divorce.
Group founder Cyndy Shaft-Toll, DC, found herself starting over after a divorce from her chiropractor husband. She looked to her fellow women colleagues for guidance and support and soon after established Women Chiropractors to provide that same connection to more Wdc’s across the world.
“Whether you are starting over or starting fresh, the ReEntry Program is open to guide and support you through your journey,” Shaft-Toll said. “Established in 2017, the ReEntry program is at the heart of Women Chiropractors.”
Shaft-Toll established Wdc after seeing the struggles women DCs face in the chiropractic industry.
“I love chiropractic, I love how it changes peoples’ lives for the better, I love being a woman chiropractor; what I hate is seeing my wonderful female colleagues struggling,” she says. “I hate seeing them feeling unworthy to practice because they are pregnant or nursing or raising kids or just feeling incompetent to practice because somehow they didn’t ‘get’ how to adjust well enough. I hate seeing them struggle under student loans and try to provide enough money to fund their lifestyle.”
The program provides a curriculum and support for women chiropractors who have stepped out of the profession for a period of time and are ready to re-enter, or are just starting fresh. The five-month program provides a support system to help establish the building blocks of re-entering practice. The classes are online, and graduation is on International Women Chiropractors Day, June 5, 2020.
Applications will be accepted for the ReEntry program through the end of 2019, and the first class will start on Jan. 7, 2020.
