Make a Lasting Impact with a Gift to the NCMIC Foundation

Thinking about how to allocate your year-end giving? Consider the NCMIC Foundation to help further chiropractic research and education.

In today’s challenging health care environment, ongoing research is necessary to demonstrate the effectiveness, safety and cost efficiency of chiropractic and alternative health care. 

It’s why in 2003, NCMIC founded the NCMIC Foundation, Inc., a non-profit organization. Since then, the Foundation has collaborated with organizations, institutions and doctors worldwide to fund education and chiropractic research that is comprehensive, as well as far-reaching.

The Foundation has supported DCs who have pursued or are pursuing fellowships and advanced degrees from more than two dozen universities. Areas of expertise include biomechanics, rehabilitation, epidemiology, pediatrics, neurosciences, biomedical/public health, health policy/economics, communication/instructional design, research methods, health care, social science and other complementary and alternative care.

“The NCMIC Foundation has been very diligent in supporting clinically trained DCs in their quest to become academically trained research clinicians at the masters and PhD level,” said Reed Phillips, DC, MSCM, PhD, and NCMIC Foundation executive director. “We have funded these individuals in a variety of fields pertinent to the practice of chiropractic such as rehabilitation sciences, public health, epidemiology, neuroscience, educational design and public policy.”
