To catalyze formation of a consortium of individuals, institutions and organizations contributing their respective expertise to prepare suitable candidates for teaching assignments abroad and to assist in the development of the foreign chiropractic association’s ability to interest a local university and have the preparations in place to fill the school with candidate student chiropractors.
Hold a conference that will form of an International think-tank consisting of experts in Education and International Development to create a methodology, a system that will build a sustainable pool of qualified faculty to start-up chiropractic training programs in poor countries.
The sad reality is that billions of people in Asia, Latin America, Africa, etc. are denied access to chiropractic services and suffer the physical disabilities and economic disparities resulting from a weaker work force, a healthcare burden that will only worsen over time and that keeps these countries poor.
LOGISTICS is the central focus word for the nature of the work that has to be done to break the extreme challenges presented when a small contingency of pioneer chiropractors try to have a chiropractic college established in their poor country. The combining of advanced education distance-learning, fund raising, culturally sensitive training of prospective faculty to be assigned for 2-3 years abroad are just the most obvious targets for deliberation.
The outcome will be a consortium of individuals, institutions and organizations contributing their respective talents and expertise to build an entity that will select suitable candidates for teaching assignments abroad, that will assist in the development of the foreign chiropractic association’s ability to interest a local university and have the preparations in place to fill the school with candidate student chiropractors; that will be able to coordinate a business plan with the local university willing and able to establish a Chiropractic Department.
Chiropractic institutions like Life University with active projects in several countries like China, India, Central America and Africa, that recognizes the need to build a “green house” type of process where seedlings can be grown into a viable entity before being transplanted on foreign soil; and that a process is needed in the receiving country to fully develop the project. Other organizations and institutions being invited are the same ones involved in the former successes, in the starting of the New Zealand and Brazil colleges. Participants are mostly past presidents or lead persons from such schools as Sherman Chiropractic College, Palmer Chiropractic College, Parker Chiropractic College and the Association of Chiropractic Colleges and the Chiropractic Diplomatic Corps.
This crowdfunding process is an excellent format to introduce this concept to thousands of people who have an interest in the International development of chiropractic and who would perhaps benefit from the successful operations of such a consortium. Our donors would come from within the chiropractic profession but even more so would be of interest to the millions of satisfied and grateful patients who have their own personal testimony of what chiropractic care has done for them and has meant to their business and their family.
If 300 grateful patients donated $100 each we would reach our goal of $30,000. If 30 chiropractors, grateful for the life financed by their successful chiropractic practice and wishing they could have an easy way to give-back, each gave $1,000 we would reach our goal. Thank you in advance for caring about the suffering of people in poor countries and how the chiropractic profession needs help to organize and deliver a mechanism that would over time eliminate the disparity of available chiropractors in under developed countries.
