The World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) has announced it will hold its 2021 Biennial Congress, the chiropractic profession’s premier scientific and academic meeting, on Sept. 23-25 as a virtual event.
“The WFC is used to hosting delegates from across its seven world regions at its biennial event,” organizers said in a press release. “This year, it hopes to attract a record number of participants as it moves to a virtual platform, providing access to thousands of chiropractors who will be able to enjoy outstanding plenary speakers, stimulating debates, inspiring workshops and groundbreaking research presentations from the comfort of their home or office.”
The event will also partner with Parker Seminars to feature state-of-the-art studio, i-poster sessions and virtual presentation facilities to create a unique user experience.
“The opportunity to host a virtual congress means that we can reach our entire global community of chiropractors,” World Federation of Chiropractic Secretary-General Dr. Richard Brown said. “We want this event to be for the many, not for the few, and we’re committed to making the Congress accessible for chiropractors at all stages of their careers, including chiropractic students.”
The theme of the World Federation of Chiropractic congress is “Chiropractic For A New Normal,” and will feature professional innovation and the latest research as well as implementation strategies and knowledge synthesis. In keeping with its commitment to its #BeEPIC campaign, the 2021 Congress will champion the values of evidence-based, people-centered, interprofessional and collaborative chiropractic practice.
The congress will also continue its tradition of showcasing chiropractic research from around the world, with platform and poster research presentations competing for a share of prize monies in a range of categories.
The call for abstracts will be announced in March. For more World Federation of Chiropractic info go to wfc.org/website.
